Mary Tyler Moore remembered as Minnesota icon

And that's one reason she will be remembered as the woman who could, and did, "turn the world on with her smile".

The Washington Post reported that Moore once said she had always thought of herself as " a new kind of comedian - the amusing straight woman".

Mary Tyler Moore starred in The Dick Van Dyke Show in the 1960s, but for many, Mary Richards was her most famous role.

She had her big breakthrough on the '60s sitcom The Dick Van Dyke Show, and she went on to score Emmy Awards, an Oscar nomination and even Elvis Presley as a leading man - playing a nun in the 1969 film Change of Habit.

Yet her program was an important work, not just for women but for Jews of all genders.

Now, almost 50 years after Mary made her mark, men and women everywhere are tipping their hats to the woman who was famous for tossing hers.

"It was a very positive impression about Minneapolis as a progressive city where a woman can come and make her way", said Winter. According to a source, Moore had been on a ventilator and had been hospitalized with pneumonia due to complications from her diabetes.

Submitted photo Mary Tyler Moore is shown at the George Tyler Moore Center for the study of the‚ÄąCivil War at Shepherd University in Shepherdstown.

While the charismatic beauty effortlessly won over audiences for decades, acting was not her first love. I will never be able to repay her for the blessings that she gave me. In 1995, she released the autobiography, After All, pulling back the veil on her seemingly flawless life to recount her battles with diabetes, alcoholism and her son's tragic death from an accidental gunshot wound. "I had Laura wear trousers, because I said, 'Women don't wear full-skirted dresses to vacuum in, '" she told TV Guide in 2004.

She later married Dr. Robert Levine in 1983 at Pierre Hotel in New York City.

Obama, who famously out-earned her husband throughout their marriage until he became president, seems to have found a way to split the difference, but you can see Moore's influence in her insistence on setting her own agenda as first lady.
