If you were raised in the 80s, one of the most iconic females on TV at the time has died. The wonderful Mrs. Garrett aka Charlotte Rae from Diff'rent Strokes and the Facts of Life has passed away. She was 92-years-old.

According to Rae's publicist Harlan Boll...

"Rae died at her Los Angeles home Sunday with her family at her side. A cause of death was not immediately available, but Rae was diagnosed last year with bone cancer after beating pancreatic cancer."

As you can imagine, her TV families are saddened by the news. Many of them paying tribute to her on social media.

it’s with a heavy heart & lots of tears (but a smile as i think of her) that I now move through the world without this incredible force of a woman being in it. she was my champion, a teacher, a proud example of the tenacity and perseverance needed to live an actor’s life. i love you char. i will continue to make you proud. and, as I send sympathies to larry and the rest of the family, I wish you the happiest of homecomings. #ripcharlotterae -- #ohwhatalife #mwah #tilwemeetagain #thankyou
