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.
