But rehab didn't take for Plato, who died of an overdose on May 8, 1999, at age 34. She was found dead in her RV, which she shared with fiancee Robert Menchaca, during a visit with family in Oklahoma. Her death was later ruled a suicide. Plato's son Tyler met a similar end on May 6, 2010, when he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, also in Oklahoma. The 25-year-old was said to have been experimenting with drugs and alcohol at the time of his death.

But Florine Plato wasn’t satisfied: She wanted her little girl on the big screen.Death of 'Diff'rent Strokes' Actress Ruled A Suicide". Chicago Tribune. May 21, 1999.
