#DorisRoberts, November 4, 1925 - April 17, 2016

Gotta give you props, Doris! You did it well, and for a loooong time! You used to #joke about people asking you for #money when their #careers fizzled out and yours seemed to just keep going. You made it to 90 baby, and we are all the richer for your work! Thanks for the #laughs lady!

Doris Roberts amassed fans, awards, and served as an inspiration to #network executives and aspiring actors alike.  A promo sketch she did showcasing the geriatric #humor of snappy, sparkling older ladies inspired #NBC execs to create #TheGoldenGirls iconic #tvshow.

57The very next day

We weren't kidding about her buddies asking for a handout either -- Doris had a tidy stockpile she's left to her son and his family, as well we're supposing to her favorite charity groups. Doris supported #AnimalRights and the #Children with #Aids Foundation.
