Penny Marshall & Rob Reiner, 1971

A photo of the backyard wedding of Penny Marshall and Rob Reiner in 1971.

The daughter of Marjorie Marshall, a tap dance teacher, and Tony Marshall, a film director and producer, and the sister of Garry Marshall (her sister was a casting director and producer), it's not surprising that Penny entered the entertainment industry as well. She was a actress (probably best known for the series "Laverne and Shirley), director, and producer. She brought us years of laughter in her productions.

She married Rob Reiner in 1971 (himself a well known entertainer and the son of Carl Reiner) and they were married for a decade. A previous marriage resulted in a daughter, Tracy (who is also an actor), and Rob adopted her.

Penny died of complications from diabetes on December 18, 2018 in Los Angeles CA - a continent away from her birthplace, The Bronx, New York City.

Loved Laverne & Shirley. While I was at Sue's recently I 'found' one of the channels aired old episodes at a time which coincided with my need for a morning coffee.

She was an excellent actor and director. From all I've seen, a woman well respected for being respectful of others. BTW, thanks for printing the "Hasenpfeffer." from Laverne and Shirley. I've never known what the company name was being said.
