Everybody Loves Raymond star Doris Roberts’ cause of death revealed 12



View Profile

It was a huge loss on April 18 for Hollywood and fans of Doris Roberts when it was announced the 90-year-old had died.

She played the neurotic mother of Ray Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond, Marie, and she won four Emmys during her time on the long-running sitcom.

It was not immediately apparent why the 90-year-old died, however news reports today have confirmed the actress died of a massive stroke.

For anyone who has had a stroke or known someone who has suffered from one, they’ll know how catastrophic and devastating they can be. Sadly in Doris’ case she did not survive.

TMZ obtained a copy of her death certificate, which also revealed Doris had suffered chronic hypertension and pulmonary hypertension for a number of years prior to her passing, which are both preventable conditions.

It shows just how important a healthy diet and exercise are to overall health, though we can all agree Doris lived a long life with many achievements that no doubt made her very happy and fulfilled.

Tell us, do you suffer hypertension?

  1. Wow 90 is a great age and Doris lived a great and active life. The writer of this article I would imagine is much younger and hardly in the position to be judgemental of Doris’s health conditions. The lady did great let’s see how well the rest of us fare, seriously I find it hard to understand why the article was written as it was. I am sure Doris lived a good life to have reached this great age.

    • Well said. She lived to a good age. Loved her! R.I.P Doris.x

  2. I agree with Lyn Coleman and I dont agree with the wording “sadly in Doris’ case she did not survive”. No one at the age of 90 would want to survive a major stroke, even if they didn’t have the extra health problems she had. Get real! Have you ever asked us how we feel about euhenasia or even about dying? Maybe that’s what has been missing on your fb. Not all of us are interested in staying or looking as you can. Many of us are past that. Please give us some nitty gritty.😊

    • My mom had a massive stroke, she survived 17 years unable to speak, walk or feed herself. We took care of her at home the whole time. Sadly she had NO quality of life. It would have been a blessing if God would have taken her. Unless you have been thru this you would not understand. Thank God Doris had a long blessed life. My mom was 64. May she rest in peace.

  3. Are you kidding me? What an awful, judgmental article! First off, as a nurse I know that hypertension and pulmonary hypertension are NOT always preventable conditions! Second off, most of us believe that living a full and active life until we’re 90 is awesome! Why “slam” Doris about her lifestyle when she achieved what most of us can only hope for? Shameful. RIP Doris Roberts, we’re on your side! <3

    • As a nurse and someone who has pulmonary hypertension and now cardiac failure I couldn’t agree with you more. I certainly could not have prevented this. I agree with you completely

  4. Terrible unfeeling article. Life after a major stroke is rarely pleasant. At the great age of 90 it is pleasing that her illness was not ongoing and she maintained her dignity.

    • As a Stroke survivor , I totally agree with you Sally.

  5. Yep I got the feeling this was an article that was about to direct me off to the latest discovery for longevity…poor show.

  6. As one who has pulmonary hypertension I assure you it is not preventable. This is a very bad judgmental article!!

  7. I have high blood pressure which came as a shock because I developed it after GIVING UP smoking 6 years ago. Prior to that my blood pressure tended to be on the low side. My doctor said I was probably just programmed to develop it at a certain age.

  8. Pulmonary hypertension is not preventable with diet and exercise. It’s an invisible disease that causes the arteries in the heart to narrow making it harder for the body to receive oxygen. People with PH often struggle doing daily tasks like climbing up the stairs before getting out of breathe and it has nothing to do with exercise. By stating that it’s preventable you are dismissing the everyday struggles of people who have PH and fight every single day. #KnowTheFacts
