I think she and Laura Webber Spencer were sisters when Laura thought nurse Barbara was her mom but she'd been taken from her real mom Lesley Webber? Not sure if they were actually sisters but just raised together for a while...

She had a fun character and all you perverts should find a different site to chat on.

I always wondered what happened to her. How sad. RIP Shel...

This is so sad. I watched her for the longest time. It's weird, I was thinking about her the other day....ABC is bringing back alot of other long gone characters, and I was hoping she was gonna be one of them....Too bad... she was GREAT!!!

She was Laura's adopted sister. They grew up together because Leslie, Laura's birth mother, gave her up for adoption. Laura found her real mother when she was around 14 years old.

Very sad news! I oftern wondered what she did after leaving GH. I do remember she designed clothes.

I remember watching her on GH when I was a little kid with my mom. She was a talented actress. She was so young to die, how sad. May she RIP, my thoughts are with all of her loved ones.

One last hing before someone attacks me again. I always thought GH treated her unfairly. She never married, never had kids, and they never gave her a decent storyline. Bye now. I'm running for the hills. :)
