Happy Days Star Erin Moran Died of Stage 4 Cancer, Authorities Reveal

An autopsy showed Monday that Stage 4 cancer was the likely cause of death for Erin Moran, America's little sister Joanie Cunningham on the popular sitcom "Happy Days" four decades ago.

Ron Howard - who played her on-screen brother Richie - and Henry Winkler, best known as The Fonz, were among the first to pay tribute to the late star on Twitter.

Reports said IN authorities responded to a 911 call that concerned an "unresponsive female", on the afternoon of April 22, 2017, but sadly Erin had already passed by the time emergency services arrived.

The autopsy on Erin Moran has been completed, and the Sheriff's office revealed the results on April 24.

Moran had been the subject of reports that she and her husband were living in a trailer in IN since losing her home to foreclosure in California.

After news spread about Moran's death, several people took to Twitter to share their condolences; including her former co-stars Ron Howard and Henry Winkler.

She also started in the spin-off show Joanie loves Chachi, which began in 1982.

Previously, you could only like or comment to a post but with a recent update to the mobile website, now you can even post photos. In a statement, Instagram said, "Instagram.com (accessed from mobile) is a web experience optimized [sic] for mobile phones".

In 2009 Moran announced that she was writing a memoir called Happy Days, Depressing Nights. Rest in it serenely now...

According to IMDb, Moran was born October 18, 1960, in Burbank, California, and her first professional acting gig was in a TV commercial.

She was reportedly kicked out of her trailer park home in IN, along with her husband Steve Fleischmann, and was subsequently living out of a motel, the Holiday Inn, in Corydon, battling substance abuse. A wonderful, sweet, caring, talented woman.

"I loved it. I'm very blessed".

Williams, who played Potsie in "Happy Days", said, "Erin was a person who made everyone around her feel better".

Moran starred on Happy Days from 1974-1984 before leaving to star in the short-lived Chachi with Baio. God has you now, Erin... Moran also jumped on the reality TV bandwagon, doing a season of VH1's weight-loss show Celebrity Fit Club in 2008.
