Soap Opera Actress Marnie Schulenburg Dead At 37, Just Days Before Her Birthday

Soap opera actress Marnie Schulenberg died Tuesday after being diagnosed in 2020 with breast cancer. She was 37, and her death came just a few days before her birthday.

Schulenberg, best known for her roles on popular daytime soaps such as CBS’s “As The World Turns” and ABC’s “One Life to Live,” passed away in Bloomfield, New Jersey, her representative told the Hollywood Reporter.

The outlet noted that Schulenberg was diagnosed two years earlier, in May 2020, with stage four metastatic breast cancer.

The Daytime Emmy-nominated actress has shared with her fans her journey from becoming a new mother in 2019 to fighting cancer.

On Mother’s Day, Marnie shared an emotional post saying she was being sent home after being hospitalized, reported People magazine.

“I got released late Friday night but had to be sent home with an oxygen machine,” Schulenberg wrote. “It’s not my ideal to be a 38 year old Mom who needs an oxygen tank to survive right now. I want to be strong and beautiful for her. I want to show her how to move throughout this world with compassion, strength, vivacity, humor and joy like my Mother showed me.”

“I know that me being here for her is the best gift I can give her but right now it feels like settling since she’s getting a half-life version of myself,” she added. “My mother showed up 100% all day everyday for me growing up or at least it seemed that way. I want to give Coda the same but I must be kind to myself and remember that nothing is permanent.”

“So here’s to remembering that nothing is permanent,” the actress continued. “To soaking up the imperfections and that the best thing you can do for your child is make them feel loved, safe and supported just like my mother did for me. Screw the oxygen mask, just remember how to breathe. Sending love to all the amazing Mama’s in my life. #happymothersday.”

She is survived by her husband, Zack Robidas, and daughter, Coda.
