Jehane Dyllan Reuther, a playwright, producer, actress and labor activist who lived in Baltimore for the last eight years of her life, died Friday in her Homeland home after a 3 1/2 -year battle with cancer. She was 46.
A private service was planned, with a memorial service as a celebration of her works to be held at a later date.
In the mid-1970s, she created the non-profit Union Sister Productions, which produced plays dealing with feminist issues.
Besides her husband of 10 years, she is survived by two sons, Jason D. Helmer and Gabriel M. Helmer, both of Baltimore; her parents, Louis and Opal Santi of Indiatlantic, Fla.; and two brothers, Ronnie Santi of Melbourne, Fla., and Michael Santi of Memphis.
Memorial contributions can be made to the Christic Institute, 1324 N. Capitol St., N.W., Washington 20077.
