We seem to not be able to say goodbye to 2016 quick enough without news of people’s deaths in the public eye.
Now, General Hospital fans have learned on Wednesday morning that Barbara Tarbuck passed away on December 27th. Tarback played the beloved mother to Jax (Ingo Rademacher), Lady Jane Jax. She died at age 74.
In an ironic twist, when Jax left the canvas in a hurry in November, he had to scurry out of Port Charles to tend to his ailing mother in Australia, after coming to town to be with Carly (Laura Wright), following the death of her son, Morgan.
Among Tarbuck’s other television credits, they included roles on: ER, Cold Case, Santa Barbara, Falcon Crest, Dynasty, Dallas, American Horror Story to name but a few. Tarbuck was also a reknowned acting coach and appeared in numerous stage productions throughout the world.
In a year in the soaps that has seen us having to say goodbye to the likes of Agnes Nixon, Larkin Malloy, Claire Labine, and Joseph Mascolo among others, Tarbuck’s death punctuates that.
