The Brady Bunch actress, who competed on season 11, died from heart failure and was at a DWTS show taping supporting former co-star Maureen McCormick, just three days before her death at age 82.

McCormick opened up to ET at the time about her close relationship with her TV mom.

"She was an incredible example of how to life your life," McCormick told ET's Nancy O'Dell. "She was that sweet. She really was. She was the loveliest of ladies."

"Florence played our mother on the show, but I always felt like she was more of a sister,” she added.

“She was so young at heart, and just a really good friend," she added.
