SHOCK: Social-Minded BRADY BUNCH STAR Has Died Unexpectedly

Friends and family say they are “in a state of shock…”

The Brady Bunch was one of the most dominant television shows of the 1970’s. It pioneered the concept of a loving, complex, blended family.

This morning we all received the sad news of the passing of Brady Bunch icon, Florence Henderson.

The popular actress died Thursday from heart failure. The 82-year-old had been hospitalized the day prior, in Los Angeles.

Friends and family of Florence Henderson are in a state of shock and surprise, as she had not been sick.

Her agent, Kayla Pressman, just addressed the sad news:

“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.

Henderson had just attended taping of Dancing With The Stars, as one of her fellow actresses, Maureen McCormick, is a contestant on the popular ABC show.

After the dominance of The Brady Bunch, Florence Henderson went on to enjoy a wildly successful career in entertainment, hosting or starring in a number of shows.

Henderson was also socially-minded. She begged the network to give her motherly character, Carol Brady, a job, as she wanted to pioneer the concept of “the working mother.” The issue of “women in the workplace” was a hot one in the sixties and seventies, and Henderson wanted to represent a realistic, caring, blended family.

Others in the entertainment industry are expressing their grief at Henderson’s passing:

“Florence Henderson was a dear friend for so very many years & in my <3 forever. Love & hugs to her family. I’ll miss u dearly #RIPFlorence,” tweeted Maureen McCormick, whom Henderson had seen just days before her death.

Florence Henderson will be remembered as a caring soul and an icon in one of the most prolific television series ever filmed.
