One Day at a Time's Bonnie Franklin Dead at 69

Bonnie Franklin Dead at 69One Day at a Time matriarch Bonnie Franklin died Friday following a battle with pancreatic cancer, which she was diagnosed with in September, The Associated Press reports. She was 69.

Since ending her nine-season run as divorcée/single mom Ann Romano on CBS’ groundbreaking One Day at a Time, Franklin guested on series such as Touched By an Angel, Hot in Cleveland and, most recently, The Young and the Restless.

Her pre-One Day credits included appearances on The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Munsters and Please Don’t Eat the Daisies.

Franklin last April reunited with One Day at a Time castmates Valerie Bertinelli, Mackenzie Phillips, Pat Harrington Jr, and Glenn Scarpelli at the TV Land Awards, where the sitcom was honored with the Innovator Award. Watch video from that event here:
