Another added: “I will always be angry she didn’t get to reprise her role as Lori/Yori in Tron: Legacy.”

A third agreed: “So sorry to hear of the passing of Chicago’s Cindy Morgan. Before starring in Caddyshack and Tron, Cindy was a DJ at the old WSDM-FM. What a lovely and talented and warm presence.’”

Lydia Cornell, an actress known best for her role on ABC’s Too Close for Comfort, posted: “I can’t believe Cindy Morgan is gone!

“We did a few autograph shows together; such a sweet person. I remember when Ted Knight came to work on the first day of taping our show Too Close for Comfort and talked about what fun he had on Caddyshack with Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Cindy Morgan and Rodney Dangerfield!!

“Rest in peace Angel.”

Now, following the news of Morgan’s passing, tragic details about the circumstances of her death have surfaced.

Her roommate called 911 after not seeing Morgan for several days, as reported by TMZ.

She then began to notice an unpleasant stench emanating from Morgan’s room.
