Jacklyn Zeman was part of the General Hospital family for over four decades. Many of her fans believe that she still played an important role in the show.

According to TV Line, Jaclyn’s last episode aired on April 27th. Bobbie Spencer was there to witness her grandson Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) get married to Willow Tate (Katelynn MacMullen).

However, there’s a possibility that the producers of General Hospital might plan a tribute episode for Jacklyn Zeman. Yet, because of the current writer’s strike in Hollywood, there’s no knowing when that episode will air. Though seeing how Jacklyn played such an integral part in the show, there’s no doubt that the writing team will dedicate an episode for her that will bring back a lot of Port Charles memories. It’s only a matter of time before that will happen.
