Saying Goodbye to the loveable "Laverne"

Source: 24/7 News

 Actress and director Penny Marshall has died at the age of 75.  

A spokeswoman for Marshall's family says she passed peacefully in her Hollywood Hills home Monday night due to complications from diabetes.  

Marshall is perhaps best known for being half of the powerhouse sitcom duo of "Laverne and Shirley," which ran from 1976 to 1983.  

The Bronx native got her first big directing job in 1986 for Whoopi Goldberg's action-comedy Jumpin Jack Flash.  

With her second film, Big, starring Tom Hanks, Marshall became the first woman to direct a film that grossed more than 100-million-dollars.
