I was so sad to learn of the passing of Rosemarie. 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!!"— carl reiner (@carlreiner) December 29, 2017
Thanks to the documentary makers who, just in the nick of time, gave the great Rose Marie the chance to hear the wonderful round of accolades she earned.— Paula Poundstone (@paulapoundstone) December 29, 2017

I’m heartbroken over the loss of Rose Marie. I met her years ago when she and Morey Amsterdam guested on Caroline in the City. We reconnected this year and there was nothing more delightful then seeing a text from her. What a life and career.— Bill Prady (@billprady) December 29, 2017
RIP Rose Marie, one of the original (and terrific) wisecracking women in comedy. TV would never have been the same without her.— Larry King (@kingsthings) December 29, 2017
