PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Actress Shell Kepler, who for years played the gossipy nurse Amy Vining on the TV soap opera "General Hospital," has died. She was 49. Kepler died Friday at Oregon Health & Science University hospital, which did not give the cause of death. Kepler's busybody character on "General Hospital" was a fan favorite and enjoyed a long run, 1979-2002.
In addition to her run on "General Hospital," she was also in a 1982 Joan Collins film, "Homework," and a couple of episodes of the situation comedy "Three's Company."
On the side, she was a businesswoman, marketing clothing on the former Home Shopping Club. She said in a 1994 Associated Press interview that her "Lacy Afternoon" collection had sales topping $20 million that year alone.

That’s sad, I liked her.
What a shame
Granted I was into soaps 29yrs ago when I was a new mommy.
My now 29year old son and I were just talking about soaps today as I saw Angie (who was with jesse 29 yrs ago one of the 1st black guys on soaps) who is now a Doctor.
I have not watched soaps since I was a new mommy but now that we have slowed down and are homebound I hate tv when having a down day and considered going back to the old soaps to see where everyone has ended up.
I saw a glimpse of Vikki Buchanan and she has fallen (so it seemed in the minute or two I saw) from the riches and now a cafe waitress curious to know what happen to her.
But so far as Amys character she really got on my nerves have no idea what she morphed into later...
Sorry for the woman who played her part losing her life and intrigued that she ended up in our State and good for her being a success outside of acting.
I remember my heart throb 30 yrs ago Scotty Baldwin....LOL
