TMZ reported earlier Wednesday that Moore was in “grave condition” at a Connecticut hospital and that her family was gathering “to say goodbye.”
While Moore had suffered from diabetes and underwent brain surgery in 2011, her condition on Wednesday was the result of “a number of health problems,” and she had been on a respirator for more than a week, according to TMZ.
Moore became a TV icon and feminist icon after starring in the groundbreaking 1970s series “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” as a single 30-year-old with a career in TV producing. The role earned her three Emmy awards.
She had previously won two Emmys for her starring role on “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” Most recently, she appeared in recurring roles on “Hot in Cleveland” and “That ’70s Show.”
Additionally, Moore was nominated for an Oscar in 1981 for “Ordinary People.”
