It is with deep regret we report the death of Penny Marshall. Penny was best known for the 70’s sitcom “Laverne & Shirley”. She was also a film director. She directed Hollywood’s blockbusters such as “Big” and “A League of Their Own”.
A Spokeswoman for the family said Penny passed away peacefully in her Hollywood Hills home yesterday, from a battle with diabetes. Penny grew up in the Bronx and was related to the super producer Garry Marshall, who directed numerous Hollywood movies including “Pretty Woman” and “The Princess Diaries”. We will miss you Penny, until we meet again. Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!
