Charlotte Rae, best known for playing Mrs. Garrett in Diff’rent Strokes and The Facts of Life, has died at 92 years old.
Reps for the Emmy nominated actress confirmed she passed away Sunday in her Los Angeles home, according to reports.
A cause of death has yet to be reported, but the sitcom veteran revealed in April 2017 that she was battling bone cancer.
Her most popular role was playing the Drummond family’s housekeeper, Edna Garrett, on Diff’rent Strokes. The character was so popular with fans, Rae later landed her own spinoff with Facts of Life, where she played the same character running an all-girls boarding school.
Some of the Facts of Life cast took to social media to pay tribute to their former onscreen house mother, including Mindy Cohn, Lisa Whelchel, and former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Fields.

R.I.P., Charlotte. You will be missed.
