Erin Moran may have died of cancer, a statement from the Harrison County sheriff and coroner revealed. An autopsy revealed she likely died from complications of stage 4 cancer.

On Saturday, the "Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi" star was found unresponsive in a trailer she shared with her second husband Walmart employee Steve Fleischmann and mother-in-law in New Salisbury, Indiana.

An autopsy and standard toxicology tests were performed on the 56-year-old actress and the results are pending. Moran was born in Burbank, California, on October 18, 1960, and was guided into an acting career while most kids were just beginning kindergarten.

Former child star Paul Petersen, who starred on The Donna Reed Show, hinted that Erin had been through personal struggles upon the news of her death.

The paper added that Moran and her second husband, Steve Fleischmann, whom she married in 1993, had moved to southern in in 2011, a year after the foreclosure of their California home.

"A lot of people don't know this but after the first Happy Days pilot which didn't sell, I went back to playing the concerned boyfriend parts and I was working with Kay Lenz on a Hallmark Hall of Fame special around 1973", he recalls.

Many of Moran's "Happy Days" co-stars are now grieving the loss of their friend.

She had only a handful of acting jobs in the last 25 years (her most recent credit was 2010's Not Another B Movie), according to her IMDb page.

In the wake of her passing, her former TV family expressed their sadness. RIP Erin. I'll always choose to remember you on our show making scenes better, getting laughs and lighting up TV screens, ' Howard tweeted. She got cuter and cuter every year!

Meanwhile, Howard has said he's not interested in a "Happy Days" reboot. "God has you now, Erin".

Her teaming with onscreen love interest Scott Baio proved to be so popular that they spun off into their own short-lived series, "Joanie Loves Chachi".
