    1. Agnes Eckhardt, Nixon also portrayed the ghost of Aggy, the founder of Pine Valley in a later episode. On OLTL she played Agnes, an angel and Agnes Dixon the creator of Fraternity Row.
    2. The Siegels
    3. Guiding Light, she actually won an award for crafting that story 40 years after it aired.

    Bonus: What legendary soap was she the first head writer of? Search for Tomorrow, she wrote the first 13 weeks.
