“It is with broken hearts that we share the terribly sad news that our beloved Rose Marie passed away this afternoon,” the statement said.

THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW -- NOW IN LIVING COLOR! Friday Dec.22 (9:01-10:00 PM, ET/PT)  The two newly colorized back-to-back episodes of this memorable series were selected by series creator Carl Reiner as two of Mary Tyler Moore\'s best episodes. In "My Blonde-Haired Brunette" (first presented on Oct. 10, 1961 during the series\' first season), Laura dyes her hair blonde when she fears the romance between Rob and her is fading. In "October Eve" (initially presented on April 8, 1964 during Season Three), a painting of Laura returns to haunt her--¦despite having posed fully clothed, the artist (played by Carl Reiner) took the liberty of "undraping" her.

The Film, TV and Broadway actress had one of the longest-running careers in entertainment, according to the obituary on her website.

After a career as a popular radio personality, Marie got her big break performing in movies such as “International House” and “Big Broadcast of 1935.” She was invited to be a headliner by Benjamin “Bugsy” Segal at the Flamingo casino hotel in Las Vegas in 1946 before becoming a household name on “Dick Van Dyke” in 1961.

From there, she moved on to “The Doris Day Show” and became one of the longest regulars on “Hollywood Squares.”

She appeared in numerous movies as a child and starred in the Broadway musical "Top Banana." She was nominated for three Emmys and received a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame in 2001.

According to her website, when asked about retiring she said, "I've been in show business my whole life. Why start something new now?"

Carl Reiner, the creator of the "Dick Van Dyke Show" tweeted about her passing.

"I was so sad to learn of the passing of Rosemarie," he wrote. "There's never been a more engaging & multi-talented performer. In a span of 90 years, since she was four, dear Rosie performed on radio, in vaudeville, night clubs, films, TV, & Vegas & always had audiences clamoring for "more!!"
