Mary Tyler Moore of ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ Dead at 80

Mary Tyler Moore, famed TV icon from the 1960’s and 1970’s, has passed away at 80. According to her rep Mara Buxbaum:

Today, beloved icon, Mary Tyler Moore, passed away at the age of 80 in the company of friends and her loving husband of over 33 years, Dr. S. Robert Levine. A groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.

TMZ reports she had been on a respirator for a week. That sucks.

Moore made a name for herself on The Dick Van Dyke Show, then starred on her own show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show. She was a seven time Emmy winner and also earned an Oscar nominee for Ordinary People.

Please don’t take Betty White, please don’t take Betty White.
