Penny Marshall of Laverne & Shirley fame is dead

Following a number of guest roles, she landed a one-episode role on Happy Days (which Garry created) as Laverne, a Milwaukee brewery worker who, along with colleague Shirley (Cindy Williams), goes on a double date with Fonzie and Richie Cunningham.

She was well-known as an actress in the 1970s and transitioned into a director later in her career. She also was a regular in her brother Garry's films, appearing in 2011's New Year's Eve and narrating his last film, 2016's Mother's Day. "She could play round ball with the best of them". The cause of death was complications stemming from diabetes. Maybe it's because it's just a feel good movie, something that gives many (especially women) a sense of hope and belonging, but A League of Their Own has enjoyed strong staying power for a reason.

Her birthday was October 15, 1943.

Rosie O'Donnell, who starred in Marshall's 1992 film "A League of Their Own", expressed her devastation on Twitter. That series also starred future film director Rob Reiner (The Princess Bride; When Harry Met Sally), to whom Marshall was married from 1971 to 1979.

"She did commercial movies at a time when women weren't doing studio films". Riding In Cars With Boys with Drew Barrymore. She was so proud of her daughter and her grandchildren.

And then she kind of disappeared.

She previously had a daughter, Tracy, after a teenage romance with a football player at the University of New Mexico, but that union, too, ended in divorce. After I saw myself in a "Love American Style" segment, I cried for three days.

Marshall never again matched the run of "Big", "Awakenings" and "A League of Their Own".

Whether courtside or behind the dugout, she could be seen winning fellow fans over with that infectious Peggy Marshall smile - her trademark tinted glasses sitting on the bridge of her nose.

Her family said plans for a "celebration of her life" will be announced at a later date. "They seek me out".
