ACTRESS Cindy Williams, who played Shirley on Laverne & Shirley, has passed away after a health battle. The iconic TV star who worked alongside Penny Marshall’s Laverne on the Happy Days spin-off died aged 75, her family revealed on Monday. Cindy, who is survived by her two children Zak and Emily Hudson, passed away on Wednesday, January 25, 2022, after suffering from a brief illness.

In a statement released by their family spokeswoman Liza Cranis, Cindy's children said: "The passing of our kind, hilarious mother, Cindy Williams, has brought us insurmountable sadness that could never truly be expressed. "Knowing and loving her has been our joy and privilege. She was one of a kind, beautiful, generous and possessed a brilliant sense of humor and a glittering spirit that everyone loved.” Laverne & Shirley ran on ABC from January 26, 1976, until 1983 and was one of the most popular shows on TV between 1977 and 1979.

Cindy, born on August 22, 1947, was an American actress known for her appearances in Happy Days, American Graffiti, and The Conversation. In Laverne & Shirley, Cindy played the straitlaced Shirley Feeney to Penny’s more libertine Laverne on the show about a pair of roommates that worked at a Milwaukee bottling factory in the 1950s and 60s, the Associated Press reports. Cindy's death comes about five years after her co-star Penny Marshall, who played Laverne, died on December 17, 2018.
