    It's hard to believe this because she was one of those people who are always so full of life. Vibrant. Energetic. Funny.

    RIP

    So sad! I had no idea she was in ill health. She looked great a few months ago with Maureen McCormick !
    No cause of death has been released. Perhaps it was a recent health issue.
    This was unexpected. :sad:

    Sad news today. "Ms. Brady" raised a generation (not mine; I'm more of the "June Cleaver" crowd ), but she was a role model for some, to be sure.. May Florence Henderson rest in peace.

    What a shock! Florence was in the audience at least twice cheering for her former fellow cast member, Maureen McCormick, on Dancing With the Stars. IIRC, Ms. Henderson is a godmother of a Princess cruise ship.

    Florence Henderson, Marion Ross, Erin Moran, Susan Olsen – Emerald Princess®

    May 13, 2007 | Athens (Piraeus), Greece

    To christen Emerald Princess, the company reunited some of television’s most famous mothers and daughters to serve as the ship’ godmothers. The selection was especially fitting because the festivities took place in Greece, which was the birthplace of the Mother’ Day holiday.

    The famous mother/daughter duos included Florence Henderson, who played “Carol Brady” on The Brady Bunch, and her TV daughter Susan Olsen, aka “Cindy Brady,” ...

    It's interesting how celebrities take on the character of their role in our culture. Florence Henderson, Andy Griffith, Dick Van Dyke. All beloved by our culture because they played roles that were beloved on television. Not so much, in real life.
