According to TMZ, Marshall died in her Hollywood Hills home on Monday night.

The Marshall family said in a statement: "Our family is heartbroken over the passing of Penny Marshall".

Marshall first earned fame playing Laverne DeFazio on the Happy Days spinoff Laverne & Shirley. The series ran on the network for eight seasons, from 1976 to 1983.

Like a lot of people weaned on sitcoms, I'll always have fond memories of Laverne & Shirley, in particular the hilarious comic chemistry Marshall shared with her costar Cindy Williams.

In 1972, she won a recurring role on Garry Marshall's primetime version of The Odd Couple. Her first film was the underwhelming 1986 Whoopi Goldberg comedy Jumpin' Jack Flash, but that was followed by the charming 1988 hit Big, starring fellow former TV sitcom star Tom Hanks.

She is survived by an older sister, her daughter and three grandchildren. "Your movie A League of Their Own honored the women of the (All-American Girls Professional Baseball League) and inspired others to play baseball".

She topped $100 million against in 1992 with A League of Their Own.

Rob and Penny were married from 1971 to 1981 and he adopted her daughter and raised her alongside Penny.

"I'm terribly sad to hear the news about Penny passing". - Billy Crystal, via Twitter. She brought the world joy and laughter, and was a true force behind the camera as a producer and director.

It was a ideal storm of TV symmetry with another unique angle that was "All in the Family" in more ways than one: Penny's marriage to Rob Reiner, who played Mike Stivic opposite Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor) on the hit CBS sitcom. "I led an oddly charmed life for someone she thought was a not charming person". Much of the show's humor derived from the fact that she was bad at household chores like cooking.
