Rose Marie, Star On ‘Dick Van Dyke Show,’ Dies At 94


Rose Marie, best known as TV writer Sally Rogers on classic sitcom “The Dick Van Dyke Show”  passed away Thursday according to her website.

“It is with broken hearts,” her Twitter account recently shared, “that we share the terribly sad news that our beloved Rose Marie passed away this afternoon.”




Marie, a child star on NBC radio in the ’30s, found her most famous role as writer Sally Rogers on the Dick Van Dyke Show in the 1960s, though her career includes a role on Broadway as well as dozens of feature films and TV shows. The New York Post recently interviewed her about befriending “Uncle” Al Capone when she was working with Milton Berle at age 10 in a Chicago theater.

Her career went beyond the TV screen as she starred in many films such as “Dick And Jane” and “The Man From Clover Grove”. She even held her own against legendary comedians such as  Milton Berle on Broadway in “Spring In Brazil”. Rose Marie’s colorful life and career is the subject of a forthcoming documentary film titled Wait For Your Laugh: The Longest Career in Showbiz History.

Rose Marie continued to stay active in the public eye, especially on Twitter with over 100k followers.


For now, she’s been tweeting away about it.
