Brady Bunch Mom, Florence Henderson Dies at 82

CelebNHealth247.com has just got word that the beloved Florence Henderson, who played the iconic TV role of Carol Brady, died on Thanksgiving Day.

While everyone was enjoying their family, Florence Henderson suffered heart failure, according to her publicist, when she died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She was surrounded by family members at the hospital.

Florence Henderson achievements:

Florence role as the “Brady Bunch” mom was one of the most beloved characters for generations of TV sitcom fans. In case you didn’t know, she was also a huge Broadway star even before her Brady fame.

Mrs. Henderson starred in musicals such as “Fanny,” “Oklahoma” and “Wish You Were Here.” In 1969, Florence became a household name when she landed the role of Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch. The show had a five year run from 1969 to 1974. That wasn’t the end for her stint as the delightful wife Carol, she ended up reprising the role many times again in TV specials, TV movies, and feature films.

Florence Henderson touched our hearts in many ways as Carol Brady, she was that cool mom, you just wanted to hug all day. The Brady Bunch series stood out partly because it was so perky and upbeat at a time of major strife during a hard time in America, the Vietnam war.

Florence seemed fine until a few days ago, when she was hospitalized at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in L.A. where she passed away.

We love you Florence. Thank you for your all your memorable times on TV as Carol Brady. She will always be remembered as Carol Brady…take a look below. Do you remember when Marcia and Carol Brady sang at Westdale’s Family Frolic Night?

Or this time when Marcia confront Jan about her awards being put in the closet, “Marcia, Marcia Marcia”

Or this time with Peter – “Porkchops and Applesauce”

Our condolences goes out to her family. God Bless and RIP!
