Florence Henderson 'Brady Bunch' alum dies at 82

"We are all in a state of shock", said Pressman, who spoke with the actress Wednesday night.

Florence Henderson, a.k.a. Carol Brady from The Brady Bunch, passed away on November 24, 2016 at the age of 82. "We love you, Mrs. Brady", tweeted Seth MacFarlane ("Family Guy", "Ted"). "God Bless & Love!' She also sent back the 'after" photo, on which she wrote, 'Dear Campbell A.K.A. Florence Henderson - Great Job!

Her former castmates expressed their shock and grief at her passing. She was 82 years old.

Barry Williams, who played Greg Brady, described Henderson as "one of the most gracious people I have ever known".

"She took what she did very, very seriously", Williams said Friday. She treated her workmates like family, down to the last detail.

"It's this kind of loyalty and support and caring. this is the way she was in life with people. She included everyone. It didn't matter where we were, that woman always had time for everyone around her".

Born in the small town of Dale, Indiana, in 1934, Henderson's family was reminiscent of the one she led on television. She grew up poor in IN, with an alcoholic father and a mother who left when she was 12 years old. Initially, she was meant to have been a comedic character, similar to Ball, but was rewritten to be the more familiar, maternal figure after it was felt that Ann B. Davis' character Alice, the household maid, would serve as the comic relief.

"Florence was generous, with a fearless and compassionate commitment to how her celebrity and iconic status could help others and, perhaps, even open closed minds", Viola wrote. "My first husband and I spent time with her sons, and he told me, 'Her kids are terrific.' That's how you know how good a mom she was".

Born in 1934 in southern in, the actress began her career in theatre before turning to television.

She appeared on NBC's Today show as a "Today Girl" in 1959. But after "The Brady Bunch", she would always be known to fans as Carol Brady. She pushed herself. She tried to do much harder things that she could physically do. "And she did. She came to the theater in the morning every day, way before her call and separate from rehearsals, and held classes for us", said Appugliese.

Henderson had four children with Bernstein. In fact, Henderson had missed the filming of the first six episodes due to the quick change in schedule. Henderson later married hypnotherapist John Kappas, who died in 2002.

Eve Plumb broke from her sweet image immediately after "The Brady Bunch" ended by starring as a 15-year-old prostitute in "Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway" in 1976. She stuck with her musical career for a while, reviving her role as Annie Oakley in "Annie Get Your Gun" in 1981. She reprised her role as Carol Brady countless times, both in "Brady Bunch" spin-off TV movies and series as well in more satirical contexts, like "The Love Boat". Henderson was a contender on the show in 2010.
