Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia, and the actors behind Greg and Peter Brady, Barry Williams and Christopher Knight, joined stars like Larry King, Ben Stiller, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Arsenio Hall and "Weird" Al Yankovic in remembering Henderson.

Many in Hollywood took to Twitter over Thanksgiving weekend to mourn the death of Florence Henderson, the actress behind iconic TV mom Carol Brady, who died late Thursday.

The Brady Bunch star died of heart failure, her manager Kayla Pressman said in a statement. She was 82. Henderson's TV children were among those paying tribute to their TV mom on social media.

Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia, tweeted, "You are in my heart forever Florence" along with a picture of the two women together. Henderson was spotted at a taping of Dancing With the Stars just days before she died, supporting McCormick, who competed this season.

Henderson herself competed on a previous season of DWTS and the reality series' host Tom Bergeron and judges Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba also remembered her.

Barry Williams, who played eldest son Greg, called her "one of the most gracious people I have ever known" and a "life long friend." The actor who played Peter Brady, Christopher Knight, also took to Twitter to remember Henderson.

Prior to her run as Carol Brady, Henderson was a "Today Girl," delivering the weather on the NBC morning show. Today co-host Matt Lauer, who was off Friday, called in to the NBC morning show to remember Henderson, who was a frequent guest.

 

Others mourning Henderson on social media include Ben Stiller, Carl Reiner, Larry King, Arsenio Hall, George Takei, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jane Lynch and Al Yankovic, who worked with Henderson on the video for his '90s parody song "Amish Paradise."
