Beloved actress from ‘Happy Days’ found unresponsive has passed away at 56

Beloved actress from ‘Happy Days’ found unresponsive has passed away at 56

Erin Moran, 56, best known as Joanie Cunningham on the purely hilarious 70’s show Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi, has found peace in the after-world. A 911 call notified authorities of an unresponsive female. The first responders rushed into action and when they arrived at the scene, they saw that it was Moran and she was deceased. There was nothing that could be done to save her.

Erin Moran, the former child star who played Joanie Cunningham in the sitcoms “Happy Days” and “Joanie Loves Chachi,” died Saturday at age 56.

A statement from the Sheriff’s Department in Harrison County, Indiana, said the dispatcher “received a 911 call about an unresponsive female. Upon arrival of first responders, it was determined that Erin Moran Fleischmann was deceased. An autopsy is pending.”

Fellow celebrities and former costars expressed their feelings on Twitter in respect for Moran.

There were parts of Moran’s life where she and her husband, Steve Fleischmann, fell on hard times. She was reported as a hardcore party animal who had not worked since 2008 and was living off the funds from a 2008 settlement from a lawsuit with CBS. She was allegedly kicked out of her home in a trailer park due to the partying. Then she bounced around hotels for a while.

It seems like her life spun out of control and went very far downhill after the years of Happy Days.

She was a happy girl living in happy days, but those days turned dark and disastrous for the former child actress. It almost sounds like she was the 80’s version of Lindsay Lohan. It’s like she had a life of partying and an irresponsible lifestyle after her career ended and she couldn’t get herself under control once she became too old for the all-nighters.

Erin Moran aged horribly and we still don’t know what caused her to lose her life.

If she had advice as a young adult, then maybe her life could have went in a more positive direction after Happy Days. We send prayers and good thoughts to her family, as we know they must feel terrible for this, but at the end of the day – the only people who can help themselves, are themselves.

People are what they are and probably are not going to change much once they reach adulthood, but with a little positive guidance, then maybe they grow in the right direction.
