Arguably her most iconic role came on the small screen as matriarch Carol Brady.

Henderson ran with the show until its cancellation in 1974, but the legacy lived on. The Bradys inspired a number of spinoffs.

Henderson also remained in the spotlight. Most recently, she hosted RLTV's "The Florence Henderson Show" and "Who's Cooking With Florence Henderson."

Her manager said she was "the most vibrant, beautiful inside and out person I've ever known in my entire life."
