A police spokesperson for the Harris County Sheriff in Indiana tells ET that they received a 911 call in reference to an unresponsive female on Saturday, and that first responders found Moran deceased upon arrival. An autopsy is still pending.

Moran shot to fame in the ’70s as Joanie Cunningham on “Happy Days”, the younger sister of Ron Howard’s Richie Cunningham. She later went on to star in her own spinoff, “Joanie Loves Chachi”, based on her character’s relationship with Chachi Arcola, played by Scott Baio.

Throughout the next several decades, Moran starred on “The Love Boat”, and had appearances on “Murder, She Wrote” and “Diagnosis Murder”.

The actress’ former co-star, Henry Winkler, took to Twitter to remember Moran.
