From this story:

Actress Bonnie Franklin, known to TV fans as divorced mom Ann Romano on the '70s sitcom "One Day at a Time," has died at age 69. Her family says her death was due to complications from pancreatic cancer, which Franklin revealed she was battling back in September.

Franklin earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her lead role on "One Day at a Time," the groundbreaking 1975-1984 comedy from producer Norman Lear which tackled hard-hitting issues like sexual harrassment, suicide, and premarital sex. The show was a Top 20 hit and made stars of Franklin and her TV daughters, Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli. In 2011, Franklin and Bertinelli reunited on the latter's TV Land sitcom "Hot in Cleveland."

RIP

Very sad! One Day At A Time was one of my favorite shows back in my youth. I pretty much faithfully watched the show every week until about 1982..

Thank You Bonnie for many years of entertainment and Rest In Peace...

When I made the OP, I really didn't know what else to say but RIP. But I like this article R.I.P. Bonnie Franklin: Farewell to One of TV's Coolest (and First) Single Moms.

And is it just me, or are we seeing many an obit of famous folks who died of pancreatic cancer? I just don't remember so many people dying of it 30 years ago. I realize it is the fourth-highest cancer killer among both men and women worldwide, but it just seems like I was unaware of it until fairly recently.

From what I'm reading, it's the most incurable cancer there is. My friend died of it a couple of years ago. To me, it's like a pancreatic cancer death would have been "lost in the crowd" years ago. Now it stands out because so many people survive cancer for a lot longer than they used to.

I guess that's true. I suppose there was a time cancer deaths were hardly noticeable among the cholera and plague deaths. I'm just old and remember other things.
