Marnie Schulenburg Of ‘As The World Turns’ & ‘One Life To Live’ Dies At 37

  • Marnie Schulenburg of popular soaps ‘As the World Turns’ and ‘One Life to Live’ has died.
  • She was 37.
  • Schulenburg had been battling stage 4 metastatic breast cancer.


It has been reported that Marnie Schulenburg, best known for starring on As the World Turns and One Life to Live, has sadly died at the age of 37. She had been battling cancer, and all the while, was documenting the entire process from becoming a new mother to a cancer patient. She had been battling stage 4 metastatic breast cancer.


She is best remembered for playing the roles of Alison Stewart on As the World Turns and Jo Sullivan on the One Life to Live reboot. Schulenburg and her husband Zack Robidas, had welcomed their daughter Coda into the world two years ago.


Remembering Marnie Schulenburg

Back in December 2020, Schulenburg wrote about her cancer diagnosis for the Soaps site. “On the eve of my 36th birthday, instead of searching for a place to drink multiple Bloody Marys (my birthdays always involve Bloody Marys, boats and lobster, not in any particular order), I was repeating the same question over and over again in my head: “How does one celebrate a birthday with a new baby in the middle of a global pandemic while coming to terms with a Stage IV, metastatic, borderline triple negative inflammatory breast cancer diagnosis?'”

During Schulenburg’s time doing acting, she also was attending school. Her older brother had taken her to visit DeSales University, and while she had plans to attend school in Boston, those were completely derailed when she fell in love with the campus. She graduated in 2006, and that same year, she landed her role in As the World Turns.

Schulenburg also performed off-Broadway and also in a number of popular TV series such as Blue Bloods and Showtime’s City on a Hill. She was often open with her fans online about her cancer diagnosis, most recently, opening up about it on Mother’s Day on a post on her Instagram account. “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,” she wrote at the time. “I want to show her how to move throughout this world with compassion, strength, vivacity, humor and joy like my Mother showed me.”

Rest in peace.
