Los Angeles—Florence Henderson, surrogate mother to millions of children around the world thanks to “The Brady Bunch” and its long run in syndication, died on Thanksgiving from heart failure. She was 82.

Best known for her role as Carol Brady, she also appeared in TV shows like “Hart to Hart,” “The Love Boat,” “The King of Queens” as well as numerous incarnations of “The Brady Bunch” throughout the years, both animated and variety-show-style.

On the big screen, Henderson was in such movies as “Fifty Shades of Black,” “Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult,” “RECOiL” and “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star.”

She is survived by four actual children, three girls from her first marriage and three stepsons from her best known marriage.
