Erin Moran of "Happy Days" Dead at Just 56 Years Old


Erin Moran, best known as Ron Howard's kid sister in the classic sitcom "Happy Days," has died, TMZ reports.

According to TMZ, EMTs were called at 4 p.m. Saturday Eastern time to an Indiana home to tend an "unresponsive female." When they arrived, they found Moran, who had already passed.

Moran was best known for playing Ron Howard's feisty kid sister, Joanie Cunningham, on the sitcom "Happy Days" from the time she was 12 until 22 (1974-1984). Her teaming with Scott Baio proved to be so popular that they spun off into their own short-lived series, "Joanie Loves Chachi."

Erin had a tough time after her "Happy Days" stardom ... a combination of drinking and bizarre behavior that eventually landed her in a trailer park in Indiana. She had run out of money and was reportedly kicked out of the mobile home she shared with husband Steve Fleischmann.
