DARLENE CONLEY, 72 Stage, TV actress

Darlene Conley, a veteran stage and television actress who entertained daytime audiences for nearly two decades as the feisty fashion mogul Sally Spectra on The Bold and the Beautiful, died of stomach cancer Sunday at her Los Angeles home.

The cancer was diagnosed about three months ago, and the show's producers were deciding how to portray the fate of her character, said Eva Demirjian, a publicist for the CBS serial drama.

Ms. Conley started on the long-running soap in December 1988, playing the flamboyant, red-haired chief of Spectra Creations and rival to Forrester Fashions. Her portrayal of Spectra earned her two Daytime Emmy nominations for best supporting actress and six Soap Opera Digest awards.
