LOS ANGELES — “On your mark, get set and go now. Got a dream and we just know now. We’re gonna make our dream come true.” Penny Marshall, star of the 70s TV sitcom “Laverne & Shirley,” has moved on to that great, big television studio in the sky. Ole Laverne passed away peacefully inside her Hollywood Hills residence on Monday amid complications from diabetes. She was 75. “Our family is heartbroken over the passing of Penny Marshall,” the family said in a statement.

Penny, who directed “A League of Their Own,” made cinematic history by becoming the first chick to gross more than $100 million from directing films. Damn, that’s a bunch of nickels and dimes. Anyway, RIP Laverne. Like your theme song, you made many dreams come true.

  1. Rip❤ League of Their Own is one of my favorites

  2. Such a shame to lose a wonderful actress & director. Dying from a completely treatable and curable illness never has to happen but only by utilizing the appropriate competent resources. If there is anybody with any type of blood sugar management problem know that ALL are treatable & curable without any prescription. Find the answer

  11. She was a great actress and also a director and feeling sad to hear about her death. Penny we will miss you a lot.!!!

  12. 🔴They were the Lucy and Ethel for Generation X 👧👩Loved them 💙

  13. What many young people may not realize, is when “Laverne and Shirley” was a new show, we didn’t have Cable TV, VCR/DVD Players, Video Games, Home Computers, or cell phones. ABC, CBS, and NBC controlled EVERYTHING we saw on television. As a result, when “Laverne and Shirley” was on at 8:30pm on Tuesday nights in the 1970s, nearly everyone in America was watching. It was a much simpler time in the nation that we will never experience again.

    I think I may have outed myself at 8 when I sewed L’s on all my tshirts. RIP

  15. OMG!!! The best of the best!! I love you ❤️😘💕

  16. They’re all leaving us. The actors, actresses, musicians…..it’s like watching an era die. It’s sad to see them go….and on a somewhat regular basis anymore it seems. It’s equally sad to watch a part of your own life go with them that can never be recovered. My heartfelt sadness at the loss for Penny’s loved one’s, family and friends…..and also for those of you (like me), who feel a part of their own loss in life as fans of the many laughs and good memories they all gave us. Those were good days!

  17. RIP Ms. Penny Marshall.
    all the laughs.

  18. 75 still young😭( this generation supposed to live longer 90+) That sad( She in God hands) God Bless
