Beloved 80’s actress, Charlotte Rae, has passed away at the age of 92 in her home in Los Angeles.

Rae was best known for portraying Mrs. Garrett on “Diff’rent Strokes” and “The Facts of Life”.

Throughout her life, Rae has battled both pancreatic cancer and more recently bone cancer. When announcing her bone cancer in April of 2017 last year, she made a statement saying, “At 91, every day is a birthday. I want to tell everybody to celebrate every day, to savor the day and be good to yourself, love yourself, and then you can be good to others and be of service to others.”
