Actress Doris Roberts Dies At 90

The "Everybody Loves Raymond" star was a strong supporter of the LGBT community.

Television and theater star Doris Roberts reportedly died on Sunday at the age of 90.

The actress worked in the entertainment industry for decades before getting her biggest break as Ray Romano’s mother on the hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond.

The cause of death has not yet been released, but it was her former co-star, Patricia Heaton, who confirmed the news on Monday via Twitter.

Roberts was a long-time supporter of the LGBT community, and just last year gave a speech at The Hollywood Museum’s opening night party for the exhibition “Reel to Real: Portrayals and Perceptions of Gays in Hollywood.”

The five-time Emmy winner was also the longtime chair of the Children Affected by AIDS Foundation.

Roberts is survived by her son Michael, who was also her manager.
