Happy Days Cast Remembers Erin Moran, Who Died Last Night At Just 56 Years Old

Still shocked from Erin Moran‘s death late last night.

The former Happy Days star, who famously played Joanie Cunningham on the show as well as its famous spinoff Joanie Loves Chachi, has died.

She was just 56 years old.

Cops in Indiana got a call on Saturday afternoon with a report of an "unresponsive female" — and by the time EMTs arrived to the scene, the woman was found dead. Cops later confirmed it was the former TV star’s body.

Henry Winkler, Ron Howard, other former co-stars and countless fans and admirers were still reeling from the news as of Sunday morning, too, with many sharing messages of condolences for Moran (below):

OH Erin… now you will finally have the peace you wanted so badly here on earth …Rest In It serenely now.. too soon

I’ve known Erin Moran since childhood doing "GunSmoke". More recently as a troubled soul. So saddened to hear of her passing. RIP ERIN xo
