The cause of her death was reportedly undetermined, but an autopsy is pending.

Moran joined the Happy Days cast at the age of 13 as the kid sister of Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard).

The popular show, set in the 1950s, ended in 1984 after a 10-year run.

Howard tweeted Saturday night about the loss.

Happy Days co-star Henry Winkler, who played Arthur “Fonzie" Fonzarelli, also paid tribute to the late star via Twitter.

“Now you will finally have the peace you wanted so badly here on earth," Winkler wrote. “Rest In It serenely now.. too soon."

She sued the network alongside actors Anson Williams, Don Most and Marion Ross, claiming they lost out on millions in royalties after their photos were used on DVDs, according to the New York Daily News

In 2010, Moran lived in Palmdale, Calif., but lost her home to foreclosure.
