Martha Byrne, a TV star, paid tribute to her mother on Instagram after Hubbard passed away. “Elizabeth Hubbard died, as many of you are learning this morning. I want everyone to know, first and foremost, that I made sure she knew how much everyone loved her. Working with Hubbard on As the World Turns, Byrne writes, “Every time I met her, I would share your social media comments, videos, and fond memories of her as Lucinda, Althea.
There are no words to express how much she meant to me personally. She enjoyed the audience and battled valiantly to bring truth and honesty to her performances. Simply feelings, which frequently trump terminology relating to love,” she continued. Here are our final words, which were spoken just a few days ago. I’ll share more so that we may all grieve together. Do you comprehend all that Liz has done for me? I queried. You can accomplish more, she said. She is right; because of all Mom has done for me over the past 38 years and the courage and fearlessness with which she has lived her life, I CAN AND WILL DO MORE.
I’m excited to talk more about her life, which entails so much more than just her AMAZING daytime television job, said Byrne. She added, “I attempted,” when I told her how much her fans loved her. She gave her everything. She didn’t touch anything off the screen. I’ll miss her every day, but I’m grateful that the universe gave me such a unique natural force that no one else will ever experience.
