Rose Marie: A Famous Actress And Comedian Passed Away At 94

December 29, 2017

A true television veteran has gone to Heaven. Rose Marie Mazzetta gave us nine decades of comedy, but unfortunately, the time came to say farewell.

Life and career

Rose Marie began her career as a child performer, singing under the name Baby Rose Marie. She was only three years old. At age of five, Rose was already a radio star on NBC. Her childhood fame also brought her numerous roles in films and shorts.


She got her television breakthrough at the start of the 1960s in the CBS sitcom My Sister Eileen. However, her greatest fame came in the form of Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show. The role of the lovable comedic writer brought her fame and earned her a guest role on many future shows and sitcoms.

Rose was married to trumpeter Bobby Guy for 18 years until his death in 1964. The couple had one child, a daughter called Georgiana. The actress never remarried and lived her life mainly in California where she died on December 28, 2017.


Last goodbye to Rose Marie

As soon as the news of her death was posted on Twitter, ordinary people as well as her co-workers twitted a touching farewell.

Film director Jason Wise was the last person who worked with Rose Marie. He made the documentary about the late actress called “Wait for your Laugh”.

Even Luke Skywalker misses the actress.

Comedy genius and "The Family Guy" creator Seth McFarlane paid honors to his fellow comedian.

Goodbye Rose Marie, you will make the Heavens laugh. We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family and fans of Rose Marie.
