Emmy winning actress Doris Roberts has passed away at the age of 90.

Roberts, who played the cantankerous mother in Everybody Loves Raymond, died in her sleep of natural causes at home in Los Angeles on Sunday.

During her 64-year career, she swept up five Emmys – four for Raymond, one for the TV hit St Elsewhere in 1982.

She is survived by her son Michael Cannata Jr and three grandchildren.

Ray Romano, who played Raymond in the nine-season sitcom, led tributes to his former co-star on Monday, gushing about her admirable spirit and energy.
