Loring’s agent, Chris Carbaugh of C and V Promotions, confirmed to CBS News in a statement that Loring died on Saturday “surrounded by her family. Lisa was a very loving mother, grandmother and friend with a lifetime of amazing stories and experiences.
“She brought to life one of the most iconic characters in Hollywood history that is still celebrated today. Lisa loved sharing her memories and meeting all her fans across the world. She will be missed dearly.”
Loring played a young Wednesday Addams from 1964 to 1966 and also appeared in “As the World Turns.”

The publication says she was six years old when she started in the sitcom.
It also says Loring died in a Burbank, Calif. hospital of “complications from a stroke caused by high blood pressure,” citing her daughter, Vanessa Foumberg.
Loring reprised the role in the 1977 television movie “Halloween with the New Addams Family,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
