Calling his mom “an extraordinary person”, Ben Stiller said the family felt “so lucky” to have had her in their lives.

Anne Meara launched a standup career with her husband Jerry Stiller in the 1950s.

A family statement at the weekend said: “The two were married for 61 years and worked together almost as long.”

The statement said Anne Meara’s memory would live on “in the hearts” of her family and “the millions she entertained as an actress, writer and comedienne”.

Anne Meara is survived by her husband Jerry Stiller, daughter Amy, son Ben, and her grandchildren, her family said.

Sonia is the heart and the artist of the team. She loves art and all that it implies. As Sonia says, good music, a well directed movie, or attending a music or film festival melts people’s heart and make them better. She is great at painting and photography. Working on scrapbooks is her favorite activity.
