‘As The World Turns’ Star Marnie Schulenburg Passes Away at 37

The One Life to Live actress Marnie Schulenburg is no longer with us. She died at the age of 37. Our hearts go out to the friends and family of the Hollywood star. Continue reading to know more about the cause of her death.

What was the cause of Marnie’s death?

Marnie passed away on May 17, 2022, Tuesday after losing her battle with breast cancer. She had been battling stage four metastatic breast cancer for the past two years. Her representative Kyle Luker confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the reports of the media outlet, Schulenburg was diagnosed with cancer nearly five months after giving birth to daughter Coda in December of 2019. The City on a Hill actress is survived by her husband Zack Robidas who is well known for his work in Succession and Sorry for Your Loss and their two-year-old daughter Coda.

Marnie last posted on Instagram on Mother’s Day

The soap opera actress made her last post on the social media platform Instagram on the occasion of Mother’s Day on May 8, 2022. She posted a series of pictures of herself, her mom, and her baby girl Coda on the social networking service.

“It wasn’t a guarantee that I was going to be home this Mother’s Day. I got released late Friday night but had to be sent home with an oxygen machine. 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”, she captioned the post.

Marnie further added, “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. 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.”
