Los Angeles - Actress Bonnie Franklin, known to most as the independent divorced mom Ann Romono on the long running TV sitcom "One Day at a Time" has died.
Emmy nominated actress Bonnie Franklin died Friday due to complication from pancreatic cancer, according to family members. Franklin was 69.
In recent years Franklin went back to the theater, acting and producing in Los Angeles. She also made appearances once again on the small screen, playing a nun on the CBS soap "The Young and the Restless," and reunited with her former "One Day at a Time" co-star Valeri Bertinelli, on the TV comedy "Hot in Cleveland."
However to TV fans, Franklin will undoubtedly be most remembered for her role as the fiery, redheaded, independent mom on the CBS comedy series "One Day at a Time," the role that made her famous.
Produced by Norman Lear, the show was groundbreaking for its time. Although primarily a comedy show, Franklin along with her two TV daughters played by Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli tackled some hard-hitting subjects such as sexual harassment, suicide, and premarital sex.
"One Day at a Time" ran for 9 seasons on CBS (1975-1984) and earned Franklin nominations for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe award for her role.
