Florence Henderson passed away Thursday night at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. According to her publicist, David Brokaw, she was hospitalized the day before and was surrounded by family and friends when she succumbed to heart failure.
Florence Henderson was best known for her role as Carol Brady in the Brady Bunch, a sitcom that premiered in 1969, about a divorced mom with 3 children—all girls— and a divorced dad with 3 children—all boys.
Divorce was not something considered all that cool in 1969, yet the show resonated with the American people and the show aired for five years ending in 1974. The reruns have never stopped and there were a number of spin-offs over the years. “The Brady Bunch Hour” aired 1977, followed by “The Brady Brides” in 1981 and “The Brady’s” in 1990. She even appeared on Dancing with the Stars not long ago.
Ms. Henderson had a lifelong career on television and on Broadway with a number of significant roles, but she remained known as Mrs. Brady over the years since the Brady Bunch completed their last season in 1974.
