While Christopher Knight remembers his TV mom fondly, the other original cast members also shared Henderson’s warm character.
Maureen McCormick said in a 2019 interview with Fox News that she was inspired by the actress.
“The biggest life lessons I have learned came from Florence, and that was, being able to find joy like in a big way. I mean, I spent a lot of time with her before she passed away. And I truly believe she taught me so much about finding joy, and I feel such joy again in my life. You know, I’ve gone through so many different things in my life… pretty amazing,” McCormick says.
She goes on to share some positive advice and encourages fans to live like Henderson did.
“Be around positive, good people that lift you up, that doesn’t tear you down, but just want to nurture you, and you want to nurture them, and you all work together. You know, I think that’s really important,” she said.
Henderson tragically passed away in 2016 at the age of 82 on Thanksgiving Day. She suffered from heart failure, which was her cause of death. The actress had a long career in Hollywood but she’s most remembered as being the beloved Carol Brady.
