Jeanne Davis Glynn, a longtime resident of New Fairfield and a writer for daytime TV soap operas, died early Friday at the Bethel Health Care Center....

Jeanne Davis Glynn, who lived in New Fairfield for 35 years, earned five Emmy nominations for writing soap operas during the 1980s and 1990s.

They included "Port Charles,""Guiding Light,""General Hospital,""As The World Turns" and "One Life to Live."

In 1984, Glynn won the Writers Guild of America Award for her work on "Search for Tomorrow," and in 1990, she received the Soap Opera Digest Award for "General Hospital."

"It was an actor in New York City who first challenged me to write soap operas," Glynn said in an interview last year. "He said it was a good way of reaching young people and I already knew, of course, that TV was the greatest commercial tool in the world for telling stories about the human condition."
