Florence Henderson has died, her manager and her publicist said. She was 82.
Though many television viewers may not have known it, Henderson was already a Broadway star before becoming one of America’s most beloved television moms in “The Brady Bunch.”
Henderson died Thursday night at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, after being hospitalized the day before, said her publicist, David Brokaw. Henderson had suffered heart failure, her manager Kayla Pressman said in a statement.
Family and friends had surrounded Henderson’s hospital bedside, Pressman said.
