LOS ANGELES – Cindy Williams, who played Shirley in the popular sitcom “Laverne & Shirley,” has passed away, according to her family.

She died at the age of 75 in Los Angeles after a brief illness.

“The passing of our kind, hilarious mother, Cindy Williams, has brought us insurmountable sadness that could never truly be expressed,” the statement says. “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.”

Williams was also known for her roles in “American Graffiti” (1973) directed by George Lucas and “The Conversation” (1974) by Francis Ford Coppola.

She was most famous for her portrayal of Shirley in “Laverne & Shirley,” a spinoff of “Happy Days” that aired on ABC from 1976 to 1983 and was one of the top shows on TV during its run.
