The "Brady Brunch" star spoke about Florence to Closer Weekly while attending HollyRod Foundation’s Design Gala last month. The 63-year-old actress explained that she had learned the biggest life lessons from Florence. She revealed that she spent a lot of time with Florence before her death and that her late co-star taught her a lot about finding love in a big way.

Those lessons left a positive impact on Maureen, who explained that she has learned to find joy again in her life, even after going through so many different but, yet amazing things.

Fifty years on after making its entry into television screens, the “Brady Bunch” remains one of the most-watched series to grace TV.

The show owes its success to the creativity and excellent planning of its creator, Sherwood Schwartz, and the acting skills of members of the cast.
