NEW YORK — Eileen Herlie, who appeared on “All My Children” for more than three decades as the motherly Myrtle Fargate, has died.

She was 90 and had pneumonia.

Herlie joined “All My Children” in 1976 to play Myrtle, who became the surrogate mother to many of the soap’s major characters, including Susan Lucci’s Erica Kane.

Herlie’s last appearance on the soap was in June. Before joining “All My Children,” Herlie was a regular on Broadway.

The actress made her debut in Thornton Wilder’s “The Matchmaker” in 1955.
