Suzanne Crough, best known for her role as little Tracy Partridge on the 1970s hit show The Partridge Family, died on Monday at her home in Nevada. She was 52.

Us Weekly reports that Crough was just seven years old when she first played the part of Tracy Partridge. She was 11 when the show ended. The Partridge Family ran from 1970 to 1974, and also starred Shirley Jones, David Cassidy, Susan Dey, and Danny Bonaduce.

Suzanne Crough appeared in shows including Wonder Woman and Mulligan’s Stew in the years following The Partridge Family.

Several members of The Partridge Family reunited on The Today Show back in March of 2010. At that time, Suzanne Crough explained that she didn’t do much acting following her role as Tracy Partridge.

“I’m an office manager for Office Max,” she told Today co-host Matt Lauer at the time. “I have two daughters, I’m married, I have a normal job.”

No cause of death for Suzanne Crough was announced at the time of her passing. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

Danny Bonaduce, who played the role of Danny Partridge on The Partridge Family, commented via Twitter on Suzanne Crough's death.

Fans of the popular 1970s show will forever remember Suzanne Crough in her role as Tracy Partridge--tambourine in her hand--as the family made music in venues near and far, traveling in their multi-colored school bus.

How sad that she has left this life so soon.
