NEW YORK (AP) - Bonnie Franklin, the pert, redheaded actress who won fame as a divorced mom on the long-running sitcom "One Day at a Time," has died.
Family member say she died Friday due to complications from pancreatic cancer. She was 69.
Her family had announced she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September 2012.
Though she already had stage and TV credits, "One Day at a Time" made her a star with its premiere in 1975. She played a divorced single mother raising two teenage girls, costars Valerie Bertinelli and Mackenzie Phillips.
The series ran on CBS for nine seasons, spending most of them as a Top 20 hit.
Franklin's recent credits include appearances on "The Young and the Restless" and the TV Land comedy "Hot in Cleveland," which reunited her with Bertinelli, one of that show's regulars.
