She was so adorable and so good, when they called for the second pilot of Happy Days, they were looking for a different Joanie and I recommended Erin.

Now, authorities have said that Moran "likely succumbed to complications of stage 4 cancer".

An autopsy has revealed actress Erin Moran's cause of death as likely complications due to stage 4 cancer, not a drug overdose.

Moran died at her southern IN home Saturday, April 22nd.

The statement also added that there were no illegal narcotics found at Moran's house, though "standard toxicology tests were performed and the results are pending".

Moran starred alongside Ron Howard on the '70s sitcom.

Kimberly Combs was shocked to see first responders outside her neighbor's mobile home Saturday.

Moran had reportedly recently been made to leave her trailer park home in IN with her husband Steve Fleischmann and was living in a motel while battling substance abuse, according to United States media. "God has you now, Erin", Baio wrote on Facebook.

"What happened with all of us was like we were this family", Moran told Xfinity in 2009.

In 2012, Moran was one of the "Happy Days" actors who won money in a settlement with CBS over merchandising payments. Ron Howard, who played Richie, her big brother on "Happy Days", tweeted, "I will always choose to remember you on our show making scenes better, getting laughs and lighting up TV screens".

She had only a handful of acting jobs in the last 25 years (her most recent credit was 2010's Not Another B Movie), according to her IMDb page.

Debuting at a time of nostalgia for the seemingly innocent 1950s, "Happy Days" was set in Milwaukee and became a long-running hit. Everybody's got problems and she was working through the problems to try and better herself. It's unclear what function Erin was using the tube for at the time of her death.

Erin, who had previously struggled with substance abuse issues, only told a few people of her illness, but her TV co-star and longtime friend Anson Williams had no idea how advanced the disease was.
