It was reported that Sonya went in for a pre-scheduled surgery on December 9th and was released two days later. Yet, she got sick and returned to the hospital on December 15th. It was then discovered that she had developed an infection that became uncontainable. She was placed on life support and then died later that night. At the time, General Hospital exec producer Frank Valentini also wrote on Twitter, “I am heartbroken about the loss of the incredible Sonya Eddy. I truly loved her not only as actress, but as a friend. The lights in the hub of the nurse’s station will now be a little dimmer, but her spirit and light will live on in both the show and our set.
