Early life

Kepler was born in Ohio, and her family moved to California when she was 10.[1] She had one brother, Fred, who is named after their father.[2][3]


Kepler portrayed busybody nurse Amy Vining, a "fan favorite" and sister of Laura Spencer's, on General Hospital, from 1979 to 2002.[1] She also appeared on the General Hospital spinoff Port Charles, other shows such as CHiPs and Three's Company, and the movie Homework (1982) with Joan Collins.[1]

Kepler was also a businesswoman, who marketed a line of clothing on the former Home Shopping Club. In a 1994 Associated Press interview, she claimed that her "Lacy Afternoon" collection had earned more than $20 million in sales that year.[1]

After her TV career ended, she moved to Portland, Oregon and was active in charitable fundraising.[1]

Personal life

Kepler married and divorced twice, and had no children.[2][3] She and her General Hospital costar, Jacklyn Zeman (who played Barbara Jean "Bobbie" Spencer) were close friends.[4]


Kepler died from renal failure, on February 1, 2008, at Oregon Health & Science University.[2][5] Her close friend and General Hospital costar, Jacklyn Zeman, delivered a eulogy at her funeral.[6] The February 26, 2008 episode of General Hospital was dedicated to Kepler, "In loving memory".[7][8]
