The longtime Main Line resident was the creative mind behind ABC's 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live' - she even had both stories set on Philadelphia's Main Line.
Agnes Nixon was the winner of a Lifetime Emmy award for her beloved creations.
Her shows were icons during the golden years of daytime dramas.
She will be remembered for her storylines, her contributions, and the enjoyment she brought to millions of television viewers.
The soap opera world is mourning her death.
Montgomery County native, Kristen Alderson who played Starr Manning on 'One Life to Live' spoke to Action News via Skype.
"I had a few opportunities to meet Agnes over the years, she was always so sweet and soft spoken, just a delight to be around," Alderson said.
I am devastated to learn that we have lost Agnes. I adored her and admired her--and I am? https://t.co/fZHBamiDnN— Susan Lucci (@Susan_Lucci) September 28, 2016
