LOS ANGELES -- Actress Doris Roberts, best known for her role in "Everybody Loves Raymond", has died at the age of 90, according to a family spokeswoman.

Roberts played the meddlesome mother to Ray Romano's character on the long-running CBS sitcom.

On Twitter, Roberts' costar Patricia Heaton wrote, "Truly the end of an era. My wonderful TV mother-in-law and ELR nemesis Doris Roberts was a consummate professional from whom I learned so much. She was funny and tough and loved life, living it to the fullest. Nothing gave her greater joy than her three wonderful grandchildren, of whom she was so proud. It truly was a privilege Doris. I love you and miss you."
