She played the wisecracking Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show.
Rose Marie has died at the age of 94.
Rose Marie began working in show business as a child star in vaudeville and worked for nearly a century in theatre, radio, television and movies.
The Dick Van Dyke Show not only was an ideal vehicle for Marie’s comic gifts, but was a showcase for her singing.
Rose Marie was especially proud of playing a woman defined by her work.
“I think I was the first women’s libber on television,” Rose Marie once explained, “I made the same money the guys made, I worked with them.”
Her’s was a rare sitcom character, who at the time of the show in the 1960’s, wasn’t a wife, mother, or housekeeper.
A tribute was posted on her website saying “Heaven just got a whole lot funnier.”
