Charlotte Rae, the actress who played housekeeper-turned-den-mother Mrs. Garrett on both "Diff’rent Strokes" and "The Facts of Life," has died. She was 92. CNN reports the sitcom star’s son, Larry Strauss, has confirmed that she died at her Los Angeles home on Sunday, Aug. 5. Though a cause of death has not yet been disclosed, Rae revealed last year that she’d been diagnosed with bone cancer.
