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.
