Celebs Who Died In 2023

Cindy Williams, 75

Williams is one half of TV comedy royalty as she played Shirley opposite Penny Marshall’s Laverne on the popular late 1970s sitcom “Laverne & Shirley.”

Williams also starred in some memorable movies. She was Ron Howard’s love interest in George Lucas’ classic 1973 movie “American Graffiti.” And she played Gene Hackman’s obsession in Francis Ford Coppola’s acclaimed 1974 drama “The Conversation.”

But Williams will always be known best for her comedic chops, which opposite Marshall, who died in 2018, became an iconic duo in television history.

Williams died on January 25, no cause was given.
