As BroadwayWorld sadly reported last week, Tony Award winner Mary Tyler Moore - best known as a television icon for The Mary Tyler Moore Show- passed away at 80 years old. According to her publicist, she was with her husband and friends at the time of her passing.

Moore had reportedly been suffering from a number of health problems and her condition had become critical in recent weeks, with one source sharing that the actress has been on a respirator since mid-January.

The legendary TV star was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in the early 1970's and underwent elective brain surgery to remove a benign meningioma in 2011.

Moore is best known for her long-running leading role in The Mary Tyler Moore Show from 1970 to 1977, in which she starred as 'Mary Richards', a 30-something single woman who worked as a local news producer in Minneapolis. The actress is also well known for for her earlier role as 'Laura Petrie' on The Dick Van Dyke Show in the early '60s. Her more recent TV appearances include roles on That '70s Show, Lipstick Jungle and Hot in Cleveland.
