Another piece of my childhood is gone. Cindy Williams, the actress best known for her role as Shirley Feeney on “Laverne & Shirley,” has passed away.

Cindy departed this life after a brief illness, according to a statement from her children, Zak, and Emily Hudson. 

The passing of our kind, hilarious mother, Cindy Williams, has brought us insurmountable sadness that could never truly be expressed.

Knowing and loving her has been our joy and privilege.

She was one of a kind, beautiful, generous, and possessed a brilliant sense of humor and a glittering spirit that everyone loved.

We have always been, and will remain, SO proud of her for many things…her lifelong mission to rescue animals, her prolific artistry, her faith, and most of all, her ability to make the world laugh!

May that laughter continue in everyone, because she would want that.

Thank you for loving our Mom, she loved you too.
