I believe she passed away while working on Days. I almost died when it finally showed she was the woman with the shotgun when Roman/Marlena went to the cabin looking for Tony/Renee. (working undercover for Roman) She said she liked Roman's body. lol

I'm watching some of the May 1982 material that was kindly pointed out to me, and there is this older woman at the police station, a detective ("Sweetheart"). She seems like DAYS' version of O'Riley on GH (an older woman who was fond to the virile, edgy new law enforcement character [Scorpio, Roman]). She seems to have been close to Abe and Roman for years before they arrived on the show.
Whatever happened to her? Was she written out, or did she just disappear?
Peg Stewart played her for 5 episodes in total.
She's first listed as Old Mountain Woman, and then the woman gets a name, Joretta Hicksby. But then it turns out Joretta is actually an undercover detective by the name of Rhoda Haynes (whose nickname is Sweetheart).
I liked when Marlena got pissed cause Roman called her "Sweetheart" when he spoke with her on the phone and Marlena didn't know who she was.
