Mary Tyler Moore
Mary Tyler Moore became a household name in the 1970s and one of the first women to proudly promote herself as a strong, single woman at a time where it was controversial and frowned upon to be exactly that. She was able to break the conservative barrier that many women were still expected to be viewed as through her own show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Moore had very unfortunate health circumstances that led to her death. She was type-1 diabetic and later on developed a brain tumor. The last known photo taken of her was at the LAX airport in 2013, where she looked quite ill. She died in 2017 of cardiac arrest at 80 years old.
