DEAD: Erin Moran

DEAD: ON THIS DATE

Erin Moran (aged 56)
American actress

Erin Marie Moran-Fleischmann (October 18, 1960 – April 22, 2017) was an American actress, best known for playing Joanie Cunningham on the television sitcom Happy Days and its spin-off Joanie Loves Chachi.

DEATH: On April 22, 2017, authorities in Corydon, Indiana, were alerted about an unresponsive female, later identified as Moran. She was pronounced dead, aged 56. An autopsy report from the Harrison Countycoroner indicated the cause of death to be complications of stage four squamous cell carcinoma of the throat; toxicology testing showed that no illegal narcotics were involved in her death, and no illegal substances were found in Moran’s home. Moran’s husband, in an open letter released through her co-star Scott Baio, confirmed that she had first experienced symptoms of throat cancer around Thanksgiving 2016 and deteriorated rapidly from that point, and that the facilities that had unsuccessfully attempted to treat her cancer had not made anyone aware of how badly the cancer had metastasized.
