Erin Moran, best known as Joanie Cunningham on the 1974-1984 "50s" sitcom Happy Days (you know, the one with Fonzie), died Saturday, April 22. She was 56. While the cause was initially unknown, it was later revealed to be Stage Four Cancer.
The show, a shameless ripoff of George Lucas's nostalgic teen comedy American Graffiti, revolved around the Cunningham family in Milwaukie. The cast of characters included Ron "Opie" Howard as Richie, Moran as Joanie, Tom Bosley as Mr. C, Marion Ross as Mrs. C, Donny Most as Ralph Malph, Anson Williams as Potsie, Robin Williams as Mork, and, yes, Henry Winkler (Not to be confused with that gay English teacher) as Fonzie.
