Rose Marie, 1923 - 2017

The lovely and talented Rose Marie has passed away at age 94. Ms. Marie was best known for her role as writer Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show. A role model for strong women in the workplace long before it became common, Rose Marie was a trailblazer who inspired generations of women to enter the workforce and pursue their dream careers. In real life, Ms. Marie was just as feisty and funny as her television alter ego. Like Sally, she shattered any barrier- glass or otherwise- that stood in her way. Sadly, they don’t make ‘em like Rose Marie anymore and we’ve lost another legend.

“It's wonderful to know that I made so many of you laugh, but what tops it all and is so rewarding is knowing I was part of so many of you believing that if I could do it, or if Sally could do it, you could do it too! Believe in your talent and do good work, it can take you far.”

Merry Christmas

“Aaron's heart was filled with joy and love. And he knew at last that the hate he had carried there was wrong. As ALL hatred will ever be wrong. For more powerful, more beautiful by far than all the eons of sadness and cruelty and desolation which had come before, was that one tiny, crystalline second of laughter. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”
