While Elizabeth Hubbard may not be a household name, her performances as two iconic characters on television will live forever. She first graced the screen in her portrayal of Lucinda Walsh for “As the World Turns” and later became known to many as Dr. Althea Davis from “The Doctors”.

On Monday, April 10th, 2023, Jeremy Bennett sadly announced his mother’s passing in a Facebook post that featured her smiling at the camera whilst donning a red dress. He posted, “I’m sorry to say with a broken heart mi mum passed over the weekend. Thank you for being an unmovable rock that guided me through life. I will try to honour your memory for as long as I live.”

Although Bennett did not state the cause of death, it is known that Hubbard had reached his 89th year.

On Monday, Hubbard’s daughter Martha Byrne paid a heartfelt tribute to her late father with an emotionally charged post beginning by acknowledging his passing. She said: ”As many of you are finding out this morning, Elizabeth Hubbard passed away.”

Byrne shared that she had ensured Hubbard was aware of the immense love and support her fans have for her. She said, “I would share your comments from social media, videos and your fond memories of her as Lucinda, Althea, every time I saw her. She loved the audience and fought like HELL to bring truth and honesty to her performances.”

Subsequently, Byrne eloquently expressed her immense affection for Hubbard and what he meant to her. She said, “There aren’t words to describe how much she meant to me. Only feelings, which override words in so many cases when it comes to love.” She ended the post by adding, “I’ll miss her every day but grateful the universe gifted me with such a force of nature, of which the world will not see the likes of again.”

Over her career, Peg Hubbard was nominated for 11 Daytime Emmy Awards – and won twice. In 1974 she earned the accolade for her role as Davis in a television show, and again in 1967 when she portrayed Edith Wilson in “First Ladies Diaries”.

Hubbard’s son is the sole survivor of her legacy.
