She was one of America’s moms, a television icon that endured through generations.
Florence Henderson, who played Carol Brady on “The Brady Bunch,” died Thursday from heart failure at the age of 82.Her death was unexpected. Henderson had not been sick, her manager, Kayla Pressman, said.
Just this week, Henderson attended a taping of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” to cheer on Maureen McCormick, who played her TV daughter Marcia Brady. Henderson had made some TV and movie appearances this year.
“We are all in a state of shock,” said Pressman, who spoke with the actress Wednesday night. Henderson died in a Los Angeles hospital, surrounded by family and friends.
