Cindy Williams, who played Shirley Feeney opposite Penny Marshall’s Laverne in the iconic comedy series, “Laverne & Shirley,” was one of the most well-known actors in America in the 1970s and 1980s. Her family announced her death on Monday. Following a brief illness, Williams passed away in Los Angeles on Wednesday at 75, according to her children Zak and Emily Hudson and family representative Liza Cranis.

At 22, Williams made her acting debut in 1969 when she made multiple appearances in the comedy-drama series Room 222.

Williams played Shirley in just five episodes of the iconic sitcom Happy Days, but she became a massive figure due to the series Laverne & Shirley. The children said, “The loss of our sweet, funny mother, Cindy Williams, has left us with indescribable grief. Our delight and honor have been getting to know and love her.
