What happened to Marnie Schulenburg? She dies ‘City on a Hill’ star at 37
Please don’t mention that Marnie Schulenburg succumbed to cancer. “It’s just not true,” said Marnie Schulenburg’s husband, Zack Robidas. Marnie Schulenburg, a 37-year-old soap opera actress, died on Tuesday, May 17. She died at a hospital in Bloomfield, New Jersey, according to reports.

Marnie Schulenburg Cancer Diagnosis
Please don’t tell me Marnie Schulenburg died of cancer. This is absolutely not the case. “Every day since her diagnosis, I have witnessed her crush the butt of cancer,” Zack Robidas said in a statement, according to Variety. “She is amazing.” We decided to approach her diagnosis with unwavering positivity. We just discuss the future and move on. I’m not sure if this was the best option, but it was all we had.” “When I remember my misdiagnosis and turned it into a correct diagnosis, I still harden, but I no longer feel overwhelmed with emotions remembering it,” Schulenburg posted on Instagram a few weeks ago.

One person said, “God bless you all.” “Rest in peace, Marnie Schulenburg!!!” She 37 years old she is too young !!! Another writing.
I am literally crying right now. This is not the news I always wanted to share on my ATWT fan account. Fly high, Marnie. Prayers to her family and friends.

5-18-2022, Marnie Schulenburg (the last Alison in ATWT) passed away. Her husband and her young daughter survive her. She I think she was only 37 years old. Aggressive breast cancer that attacks new mothers. Very sad. RIP.

I am so upset to hear of the passing of #MarnieSchulenburg. I saw her on Y&R and ATWT when she had scenes with @TomPelphrey. I will always keep a memory when I asked her for a photo and she knew who my sister was because she always went to her work. 🙏🙏🙏 She is an Angel. RIP pic.twitter.com/LFrc6eCWup
