Florence Henderson‘s Dancing with the Stars pro partner Corky Ballas will miss “America’s mom” just like the rest of the world that said goodbye to the Brady Bunch matriarch on Thursday.

Henderson, who played the beloved Carol Brady on the early ’70s sitcom, was surrounded by friends and family when she died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after suffering heart failure, the actress’ manager Kayla Pressman said in a statement to the Associated Press on Thursday.

PEOPLE spoke with Ballas, who worked with the actress on season 11 of the reality dancing competition series, about the impact she made in the ballroom — and on his life.
