Actress Erin Moran, most famous for her role as Richie Cunningham’s sister Joanie on the hit sitcom “Happy Days” in the 70’s and 80’s has died.
Police in Harrison County, Indiana say they answered a 911 call and found Moran unresponsive in a home where she lived with her second husband Steven Fleischman.
The cause of death has not yet been determined.
“Happy Days” was set in the 1950s and starred Ron Howard as Richie Cunningham and Henry Winkler as “The Fonz.”
Moran went on to star with Scott Baio in a spinoff called “Joanie Loves Chachi.”
She began acting at a very young age, appearing in movies and television by the time she was 5.
