Henderson, who competed on season 11, returned to the show to surprise her onscreen 'Brady Bunch' daughter Maureen McCormick on the season 23 finale.

Three days before her death, Florence Henderson supported her onscreen Brady Bunch daughter Maureen McCormick and the cast of Dancing With the Stars on the show's season finale. 

Henderson — who died Thursday at age 82 — attended the Nov. 21 taping of the ABC dance show to cheer on the final couples, including winners Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy. 

Henderson, who had competed on season 11, was a bright spot. She returned to the show to surprise McCormick on the DWTS season 23 finale.  

“You were fabulous,” Henderson complimented McCormick after blowing her kisses. “I’m so proud.”

She even joined McCormick for a Brady Bunch-themed routine, proclaiming her support for "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!"

After hearing the news of Henderson's passing, McCormick shared a message on Twitter: "Florence Henderson was a dear friend for so very many years & in my <3 forever. Love & hugs to her family. I'll miss u dearly #RIPFlorence."

Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron also shared his grief over Henderson's sudden passing.
