She was exceptional, lovely, giving, and adored by many. She also had a wonderful sense of humor and a sparkling attitude. She was brought to prominence after appearing in the 1973 film American Graffiti by director George Lucas, a role she followed the following year with the critically praised 1974 film The Conversation.

But the 1976–1983 television series Laverne & Shirley, a Happy Days spinoff, is where she rose to fame. Williams portrayed the stiff Shirley Feeney in a sitcom about two roommates who worked at a Milwaukee brewery in the 1950s against Penny Marshall’s free-spirited Laverne DiFazio.

Although they have not provided any additional information, her family has stated that the actress had a brief illness.
