Henderson passed away on Thursday surrounded by friends and family, according to her manager — no doubt a tough Thanksgiving.

The actress may have rose to fame with the 1969 hit sitcom and her infamous role as Carol Brady, but Henderson had long been a stage star on Broadway before then, and even outside The Brady Bunch, she still achieved many a notable moment in Hollywood.

In 1962, she became the first woman to host The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, and she also had notable roles in The Love Boat, Murder, She Wrote, and an appearance on season 11 of Dancing With The Stars.

All of this, and more, earned Henderson a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1996.

She had four children with her first husband, Ira Bernstein, before divorcing in 1985 after nearly 30 years of marriage.

She later married Dr. John George Kappas, whom she remained with until his death in 2002.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her four surviving children, and the rest of her friends, family, and loved ones.
