    Aw... I spent many a night watching her and the girls on ODAAT. Great show and really pushed the envelope in its day.

    Sad RIP

    Bonnie Franklin, 'One Day At a Time' star, dies

    Bonnie Franklin died Friday due to complications from pancreatic cancer

    NEW YORK -
    Bonnie Franklin, the pert, redheaded actress whom millions came to identify with for her role as divorced mom Ann Romano on the long-running sitcom "One Day at a Time," has died.

    She died Friday at her home due to complications from pancreatic cancer, family members said in a statement. She was 69. Her family had announced she was diagnosed with cancer in September.

    Franklin was a veteran stage and television performer before "One Day At a Time" made her a star.

    Developed by Norman Lear and co-created by Whitney Blake -- herself a former sitcom star and single mother raising future actress Meredith Baxter -- the series was groundbreaking for its focus on a young divorced mother seeking independence from a suffocating marriage.

    It premiered on CBS in December 1975, just five years after the network had balked at having Mary Tyler Moore play a divorcee on her own comedy series, insisting that newly single Mary Richards be portrayed as having ended her engagement instead...

    Although for only one year, I attended Beverly when Bonnie Franklin held a high student body office. (I'd have to dig out my old Watchtower from the garage to say which office it was, but it was clearly at the top.)

    Bonnie was always friendly to everyone, and never without a smile on her face. She enabled me to feel welcome at BHHS as a transfer student and for that alone, I salute her.

    Along with others, I enjoyed her performances and most especially on ODAAT, but I add this post just to tell how her star shone years before and has glowed for me ever since.

    R.I.P. Bonnie

    As a 15 year old I wasn't familiar with divorce - none of my friends parents were divorced either. To see her show where a woman could be a single parent just blew my mind. RIP Bonnie.
    There is Good Grief. Just ask Charlie Brown.
