Sarah Goldberg, best known for playing Sarah Glass on The WB/CW’s 7th Heaven, passed away Sept. 27 at the age of 40, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Then credited as Sarah Danielle Madison, Goldberg joined 7th Heaven in 2002, playing the sudden wife of Barry Watson’s Matt Camden. Watson tweeted about Goldberg’s death Tuesday:

    Very sad news. Awful news day for the show (yes I know it’s been over for 7 years but you know what I mean)

    Wow that timing is incredibly coincidental. Sad day for any 7th Heaven fans out there.

    Holy cow. What are the chances…?

    I can’t be the only one who finds it a little bit inappropriate that the only reason you’re reporting on this woman’s death a week later is because you were searching for tweets about Collins’ child molestation accusations?

    That is sad news. However the news came to be posted here, at least it didn’t go overlooked forever. She deserves to be remembered far more than the freak who made headlines today.

    Very gross that TVLine is taking advantage of a horrible situation by posting this news at this time.

    Sad news. She was great on 7th Heaven. Thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    Wow! What a shocker! I loved her on 7th Heaven.

    This was not picked up and printed due to the disgusting situation with Mr. Collins. If you click through to the obituary from the Chicago paper, it was just published today. I happen to be a friend of her family. They are shocked and devastated and did not publish an obituary until now. The burial was for family only and there was a very small Shiva for those close to them. Sarah’s death was not made public until now due to their grief and wishes for privacy.

    So what is it about quality shows like Longmire and Dallas that the networks don’t like? Cyntia Cidre perfected a great storyline for Dallas in the tradition of the original series and the actors chosen to move the show forward were perfectly matched to their parts. As for Longmire, a great show weaving native American history and tradition into the storyline was providing a real insight into the lives of modern day native americans. I just hope someone somewhere sees beyond the almighty dollar and will bring back these two great programs.

  12. So sad. Prayers go out to her family and friends.I remember her on 7th Heaven. R.I.P. Sarah Goldberg
