VALERIE HARPER………our beloved Rhoda

 

Valerie died at 80 on Friday.  She battled cancer bravely for many year.  

She  was best known as Rhoda Morgenstern on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”,

She starred in her own show in 1986 and 1987.

There was a chemistry between them that lasted thoughout their lifetime.  Mary passed away in2017 at 80.

Valerie as Tallulah Bankhead gave a memorable performance.
