Marnie Schulenburg, actress from ‘As the World Turns’ and ‘One Life to Live,’ passes away at 37 – rest in peace.
Marnie Schulenburg, known for her appearances on As the World Turns and One Life to Live, has passed away. She was 37 years old. A spokesperson confirmed her deɑth to severɑl news sites. According to Variety, her husband, actor Zack Robidas, announced Schulenburg’s deɑth in a Facebook post.
“Please don’t say Marnie succumbed to cɑncer.” This is simply not true. “I have witnessed her beɑt cɑncer in the leg every day since her diagnosis,” he wrote. “She’s amazing. We decided to approach her diagnosis with unwavering hope. We just talked about the future and moved on. I’m not sure if that’s true, but it was all we knew.”
Schulenburg was born in Cape Cod, Massachusetts on May 21, 1984. She attended Barnstable High School in Massachusetts before graduating from DeSales University with a degree in theater in 2006.
She traveled to New York immediately after graduation to begin her acting career. In February 2007, she was cast as Alison Stewart in The Young and the Restless. The following month, she appeared in As the World Turns as Alison, a role that remained on the show until it was dropped in 2010.
She won a Daytime Emmy Award during the program’s final year, in which she starred in over 300 episodes.
Many years later, she appeared in the revival of One Life to Live. She has also appeared in a number of other television series. She just finished filming a recurring role on the third season of Showtime’s City on the Hill. The season will premiere this summer.
Schulenburg revealed in May 2020, just months after giving birth to her daughter Koda, that she had been diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breɑst cɑncer. Mastitis was first diagnosed in her.
“What sick bearer of my destiny gave me the ability to bring life into this world just to try to take my place?” she asked.
Schulenburg was able to spend Mother’s Day at home with her daughter and husband after she was released from the hospitɑl. In an Instagram post, she reflected on what it means to be a mother with breɑst cɑncer.
“I know being there for her is the greatest gift I can give her, but I seem to be taking it easy now that she’s getting a version of half my life.”
Schulenburg passed away on May 17, just days before her 38th birthday, at a hospitɑl in Bloomfield, New Jersey.
“So here’s to knowing that nothing lasts forever.” To own the flaws and realize that the best thing you can do for your child is to make them feel loved, protected and supported, just like my mother did for me. Just remember how to breathe without an oxygen mask.”
Marni, rest in peace. You have fought a great fight and it is not fair that you had to leave this world so soon.
Praying for comfort and peace for her family.
