Jacklyn Zeman, who for 45 years played nurse Bobbie Spencer on ABC’s ‘General Hospital,” has died at age 70. Her family confirmed the news Wednesday and says she died after a short battle with cancer. Zeman earned four Daytime Emmy Award nominations for her portrayal of Bobbie. The character projected a big heart and bubbly personality but was not afraid to speak her mind and stand up for herself and others. Zeman also had a role on the crime drama “The Bay,” for which she earned a fourth Daytime Emmy nod. She is survived by two daughters.
