Penny “Laverne” Marshall passes away aged 75 years old

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Laverne herself, Penny Marshall has passed away at the age of 75 years old from diabetes complications.

Marshall was famous for her role as Laverne in the 1970’s TV sitcom Laverne & Shirley but she also had a successful career as a director with such films as Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Awakenings, Big, A League of Their Own, and Riding In Cars With Boys.

Marshall is survived by her daughter Tracy Reiner, from her 10-year marriage to actor and director Rob Reiner.
