'All My Children' soap actress Ruth Warrick dead at 88

UPI News Service, 01/18/2005 

Emmy-winning veteran "All My Children" soap star Ruth Warrick died in New York of pneumonia. She was 88.

Since 1970, Warrick has played the role of Phoebe Tyler Wallingford in the show, for which she received a Lifetime Achievement Emmy in May.

Over a 70-year career Warrick appeared in 30 movies, several Broadway shows and countless television productions, making her mark as the scheming Mrs. Wallingford, the New York Daily News said Tuesday.

She was also the last surviving cast member of the film "Citizen Kane."

Warrick was studying acting in Kansas City when a promotional tour brought her to New York's Mercury Theater, run by Orson Welles. He hired her and she followed him to Hollywood, where he cast her as first wife Emily Monroe Norton Kane in his 1941 masterpiece.

She is survived by her three children, Karen, Jon and Robert.
