Mary Tyler Moore was born December 29, 1936 in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, United States of America.

She was the daughter of George Tyler Moore (1913-2006) and Marjorie Hackett (1916-1992) and the eldest of their three children. The family lived in Queens, New York.

Mary married three times and had one child. Her first marriage to Dick Meeker was from 1955 to 1961, and produced her only child, Richie Jr. Her second marriage was to Grant Tinker, a network executive, who married her in 1962 and only after her son's tragic death in 1980 did they divorce in 1981. She then met Dr. Richard Levine, who was more than 15 years her junior (born 22 September 1954) and she fell in love. They were married November 23, 1983 in Manhattan and remained together until her death.

The American actress and producer was best know for her role as Mary Richards in the hit sitcom, The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The program aired from 1970-1977.

Mary passed away on January 25, 2017 in Greenwich, Connecticut.[1]
