LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Florence Henderson, the wholesome actress who went from Broadway star to television icon when she became Carol Brady, the ever-cheerful mom residing over "The Brady Bunch," has died. She was 82.
 
She died surrounded by family and friends, her manager, Kayla Pressman, said in a statement late Thursday.
 
Millions loved, and kept on loving, the innocent sitcom about a blended family.

It was also seen endlessly in reruns.
