Robyn Griggs was known for her acting work in such defunct daytime dramas as “Another World” and “One Life to Live.” She was remembered by some of her former colleagues from “Another World.”

She passed away on August 13, 2022, at the age of 49 after losing her battle with Stage 4 cancer.

Her passing was announced via her publicist on her Facebook page yesterday. She had been battling cervical cancer and was open about her health struggles and challenges on social media. Last month, she revealed that she had been diagnosed with four new tumors. She had entered hospice a few days prior.

Griggs last chatted with Digital Journal back in November of 2020.

For anybody who was battling cancer, Griggs had offered these inspiring words: “Stay positive. Remember everyone is battling something, this does not define you but makes you appreciate so much more. Remember you have people to help with the emotional aspect. Cry, let it out. Do not believe what statistics you read, every person with cancer has a different situation. Optimism will help you more than you know.”

Veteran actor Stephen Schnetzer, who played Cass Winthrop in “Another World,” remarked, “It’s especially tragic when people die too young. The ‘Another World’ family grieves at the loss of two wonderful, talented women, Robyn Griggs and Anne Heche. Deep heartfelt sympathy to their families.”

Actress Alla Korot, who played Jenna in “Another World” said, “Robyn was always very kind and upbeat. A lovely actress who was also very humble & grounded. She was extra special, that’s why she returned to heaven early. Terrible week losing Anne Heche and Robyn so young.”

Emmy award-winning actress Anna Kathryn Holbrook, who played Sharlene in “Another World,” stated, “RIP Robyn. I know you were figuring out this life just like the rest of us. God bless you and keep you. Gone too soon.”

Emmy winner Gregori J. Martin (showrunner of “The Bay”) fondly remembered Griggs. “Robyn, what a sweet woman. With a positive spirit despite her ongoing hardship and battle with cancer. She played the most memorable Maggie Cory on ‘Another World.’ A talented actress who brought so much spunk to the part, she’ll be missed by many,” Martin expressed.
