Marnie was one of the sweetest, most genuine, caring people you will ever meet. Her smile and big blue eyes captivated all she interacted with. She was an inspiration not only in her professional life but in life in general. She will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace Marnie ❤️

This is heartbreaking news. Marnie was a wonderful Alison, ably filling the shoes of the also excellent Jessica Dunphy. Alison was one of my favorite characters. For such a young woman to leave us is tragic. Sincere condolences to her family.

Incredibly sad news. I loved her portrayal of Alison Stewart. I miss As The World Turns, and when actors pass, they typically are in their 70s/80s and have lived full lives. Marnie will be missed.

Loved her as Alison Stewart. She had a nice chemistry with Billy Magnussen’s Casey Hughes.

I agree. They were a delightful onscreen couple and clearly would have been central to the future of ATWT had it continued.
