Florence Henderson was born the youngest child of ten to Joseph and Elizabeth Henderson. She matriculated from St. Francis Academy, a private school in Owensboro, Kentucky in 1951, and moved to New York, where she enrolled at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
Florence began her career as a stage actress, appearing in musicals such as “Oklahoma!” in 1952, and two years later making her Broadway debut in the musical “Fanny”. She continued successfully, increasing her popularity and establishing her net worth, and in 1958 made her debut film appearance in “Little Women”, as Meg March.
During the 1960s, she continued building her Broadway career, with a notable appearance in “The Girl Who Came To Supper” (1963), among several others, and she also took part in numerous commercials for the Oldsmobile, which increased her net worth to a large degree. However, her breakthrough role was as Carol Brady in the popular TV series “The Brady Bunch”, which aired from 1969 until 1974. She reprised her role in several spin-offs of the original series, such as “The Brady Bunch Variety Hour” (1976-1977), “The Brady Brides” (1981), “A Very Brady Christmas” (1988), “The Bradys” (1990), and “The Brady Bunch Movie” (1995), which continued to increase her net worth substantially.
To speak further of her accomplishments as an actress, during the 1970s she featured in such films and TV series as “Song Of Norway” (1970), “The Love Boat” (1976), and “3 Girls 3” (1977), among others, and thanks to the popularity of the “Brady Bunch”, Florence then secured roles in some of the popular films and TV series during the 1980s, such as “The Love Boat” (1977-1987), “Murder, She Wrote” (1986-1990), and “Fantasy Island” (1979-1983), all of which increased her net worth.
During the 1990s her career didn’t change much, only the number of films and TV series in which she appeared, including “Shakes The Clown” (1991), “Fudge” (1995), “Dave`s World” (1993-1995), “Holy Man” (1998), “Hercules” (1998), and many others, which continued the rise of her net worth.
During the 2000s, she had her own show entitled “The Florence Henderson Show”, which ran from 2007 until 2009 on Retirement Living TV(RLTV ), which was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2010. She was a frequent guest in shows such as “Surreal Life” (2003-2006), and “Hollywood Squares” (1999-2003).

In 2013, she started to host her own cooking show on RLTV called “Who’s Cooking With Florence Henderson”. All of these certainly added to the overall size of her net worth.
Most recently she was featured in the film “Fifty Shades Of Black” (2016), as Mrs. Robinson, and will appear posthumously when the film “Grandmothers Murder Club” is released in 2017, no doubt adding to her estate.
