"Florence was a wonderful role model for me and all of us 'kids.' She taught me how to be a professional actor by her example of preparedness and respect for the work and her fellow cast and crew members. She was what I came to call a 'good celebrity' in that she would always pose for a picture, sign an autograph, and was very attentive to her fans. She was also loving, warm, generous, and could tell a funny, dirty joke. I'm fortunate to have been able to know and work with her. She will be missed by her children, grandchildren, and us 'kids,'" Eve Plumb, who played Jan Brady, posted to Twitter.
