Her impressive career began in 1952 and over the years she enjoyed much success working on projects like Remington Steele, Cagney & Lacey and in an Emmy-winning guest role on primetime drama St. Elsewhere.
However, it wasn’t until the age of 70 that her career truly blossomed, with her hilarious, decade-long role as Ray Romano’s difficult, demanding mother in Everybody Loves Raymond.
