Bonnie Franklin is Dead. Renowned for her unforgettable role in ‘One Day At A Time’ she is no more. The redhead US divorced single mom, who had faced the challenge to bring up two teenage girls in her show named ‘One Day at a Time’ is no more. The very vivacious Bonnie Franklin has left for her heavenly abode. She was 69.

The TV star known for her chirpy and oh so cheery self, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. After battling the disease for about five months, she lost the battle on Friday.

Before her life became the life of a STAR with the fame derived from ‘One Day at a Time’, Bonnie was a veteran stage and television performer.

Bonnie Gail Franklin, her full name, was born in 1944 in the month of January and her work as an actor got her nominations for the much coveted Emmy, Tony and the Golden Globe Awards.

Bonnie’s parents Samuel Banjamin Fanklin, an investment banker, and Claire were from Russia and Romania, respectively. They were Jewish immigrants.

Bonnie’s family went to the US in Beverly Hills when she was a young teenager and getting acquainted with the US culture, she was an alumnus of the Beverly Hills High School, the Smith College. She also has attended University of California, Los Angeles in California.

Though she was always referred to this single mother image of hers but Bonnie was married for 29 years to playwright Ronald Sossi and film producer Marvin Minoff. The first marriage hardly lasted for about three years but the second lasted till her husband died.

Bonnie had enacted in her husband Minoff’s television movie titled Portrait of a Rebel: The Remarkable Mrs. Sanger. She had played the lead role of Margaret Sanger, before the couple wed in 1980. Bonnie never had any children.

Bonnie had started acting from the tender age of nine and her first appearance on TV was in The Colgate Comedy Hour. After this, she was seen in The Wrong Man, an Alfred Hitchcock film.

As a teenager, she was seen in You’re the Judge. This was a short educational flick. Applause was a musical film that she debuted through in 1970 in which she even sang the title track and it even earned her a Tony Award nomination. Others in the line were Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey in both A Thousand Clowns and George M!
