Florence Henderson, upbeat mom of 'The Brady Bunch,' dies at 82

As Pressman's telephone continued ringing, the woman who has worked with Henderson for 43 years - starting as her personal assistant - said the actress was "the most vibrant, attractive inside and out person I've ever known in my entire life". She died Thursday of heart failure in Los Angeles at age 82, with family and friends at her side.

Susan Olsen, the actress who played Cindy on The Brady Bunch, is opening up about the death of the show's matriarch Florence Henderson.

There were spinoffs and reunion specials like 1977's The Brady Bunch Hour, 1981's The Brady Brides and The Bradys in 1990, a Fuller House-style outing which featured the marriages and families of the six grown Brady children.

An Indiana native and graduate of New York City's American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Henderson starred in a number of famous musicals throughout the 1950s. She hosted numerous daytime talk and cooking shows, co-anchored the short-lived "Today" show spin-off "Later Today" and competed on "Dancing with the Stars" in 2010. "And I would sing for groceries", she said in an interview with CNN. This time she was Grandma Brady opposite Shelley Long's Carol.

"That might sound hokey, but I lost my mother when I was very young and when you're in a TV setting, people are gypsies - they move all over and you just work, work, work", Applegate said.

Henderson was best known as America's mom.

“Corrective surgery in both ears restored my hearing, ” she said in 2007. "She was just 100 percent fun and professional". In 2011, on the five-year anniversary of their wedding, the stars called it quits. She appeared on countless TV variety shows and game shows and made commercials for Wesson cooking oil for more than 20 years.

Maureen also addressed her past battle with cocaine addiction and depression as part of her DWTS Most Memorable Year dance, and in a pre-taped segment, Flo was on hand to offer some insight into how McCormick struggled with the transition from child star to adulthood. Her family and friends were present at the time of her death.

The source said about the show that, "It was really a show that was seen through the eyes of a child", she said, "and it was supposed to have a little soft glow about it".

Rostov then restored their lead in the 66th minute when Noboa curled home a sublime free-kick to the far post, 3-2. The defeat in the round of last resort from Borussia Dortmund 1: 0, reflected in the standings of the Bavarians.

She'll be remembered as a real class act - someone with so much talent. Her silver screen family has started pouring in their condolences for Florence's passing.

Henderson's first marriage, to theater producer Ira Bernstein, ended in divorce.

In 1987 she married a hypnotherapist, John Kappas, who died in 2002.

"She took me to NY for Christmases with her family". "There's no negative anything out there, and that's a very rare thing in this industry", she said.
