Sadly, Soaps.com regrets to report that former Days of Our Lives actress Sue Rihr passed away on October 26 in Tarzana, California after a battle with lung cancer at the age of fifty-five.

Sue can be remembered by longtime fans for her role as Madeline Rutherford Bradford from January to June of 1985. Though she went on to appear in such roles in “Beauty and The Beast,” as Maggie, “Mama’s Family,” as Evelyn and Ida, “The Desert Rose,” as Botox Betty and most recently the completed project “White Knuckles,” as Dora, Sue spent her last days writing poetry, something she really loved.

Soaps.com sends our deepest sympathies to her family and friends.
