As I sip my coffee this morning, I remember how much the iconic Mary Tyler Moore meant to us, those of us coming up in the 60s and 70s. The Mary Tyler Moore show was a must-watch, and I even purchased DVDs of some of the seasons after the show ended.
She showed us the challenges in the workplace, how to navigate dating life with humor, and how to enjoy the friendships of other women.
Last night, in two memorial shows, we were reminded of her body of work, and how her presence on the two most famous TV shows—The Dick VanDyke show and The Mary Tyler Moore show—was only a piece of who she was.
I’ve seen her in a few movies, the most notable being her portrayal of the cold mother in Ordinary People. Remember that one?
I am pretty sure I have this one in my collection, but if not, I am also sure that I can find it, perhaps on Amazon Prime.
Was Mary Tyler Moore someone who informed your life growing up? Did you watch either of her shows?
She will be missed.
