Suzanne Crough, best known for playing Tracy Partridge on the hit TV series The Partridge Family, died on April 27, 2015, at the age of 52. Her death was unexpected and caused shock among her fans and former co-stars.
The cause of Crough’s death was initially unclear, but it was later revealed that she died of a rare heart condition called arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. This condition causes the heart muscle to be replaced by fat and fibrous tissue, leading to abnormal heart rhythms that can be fatal.

Her former Partridge Family co-stars paid tribute to her, with David Cassidy saying that he was “in shock beyond words” and Danny Bonaduce saying that she was “a wonderful lady”.
Crough’s death was a reminder that even those who seem healthy and young can be struck down by unexpected and rare medical conditions.
Her sudden death left fans of the show and her former co-stars stunned and saddened. Crough’s death was ruled as natural, with the cause being arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. She was survived by her husband, two daughters, and a granddaughter.
