( CNN) Broadway and television actress Rose Marie, best known for her role as Sally Rogers on “The Dick Van Dyke Show, ” died Thursday, her publicist said, quoting their own families. She was 94.
Born Rose Marie Mazetta on August 15, 1923, in New York, she began performing at age 3 by winning an amateur race that took her to Atlantic City, New Jersey. She soon began performing on network radio.
During a job that spanned nine decades, Rose Marie — who went only by her first name professionally — was also famous for showing for years on the game show “The Hollywood Squares, ” which featured celebrities sitting in containers on a life-size tic-tac-toe committee. The website IMDb says she appeared in 629 of the show’s episodes.
