A veteran of vaudeville and one of its last surviving stars, she started her career at 3 years old as Baby Rose Marie and had a successful singing career through the 1920s and ‘30s, appearing on many hit radio shows.
She performed for three presidents, Coolidge, Hoover and Roosevelt and starred in several of the earliest talking films, according to her website.
She became a household name in the 1960s starring alongside Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore in “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” She went on to star in the “Doris Day Show” and was a regular on the hit 1970s game show “Hollywood Squares.”
She was one of the first stars to go by one name and her famous hair bow and other items from her long career were inducted into the Smithsonian in 2008, according to the statement on her website.
Rose Marie was married to trumpeter Bobby Guy, the lead trumpeter for the NBC orchestra on "The Tonight Show," from 1946 until his death in 1964.
The couple had one daughter together.
Rose Marie is survived by daughter Georgiana Marie “Noopy” and her son-in-law Steven Rodrigues.
Funeral arrangements are incomplete.
