Goodnight Jeanne Cooper

"She has been a blaze her entire life, that beacon, that boxer I spoke of earlier. She went the full twelve rounds and by unanimous decision... won! And while her light finally gave into the wind that gives flight to all our journeys, there will always be a glimmer left behind by what she stood for...I will certainly dedicate what remains of my life to continue her purpose of honesty, equality, humility, empathy and love. "—Corbin Bernsen (son)

Jeanne Cooper (1928-2013) the dame of daytime television passed away on May 8, 2013 after a long illness. Jeanne played the beloved and wealthy business woman Katherine Chancellor a.k.a "The Duchess" on CBS' The Young and the Restless from November 1973 until her illness in April 2013. That's almost four decades as the matriarch of (fictional) Genoa City. As a life long Y&R fan, the news of her passing stopped me in my tracks. Katherine Chancellor has been a part of my pop culture repertoire as long as I can remember. She was like family.

"Also, it should be said, what a testament to her greatness that we can all grieve together because we ALL really knew her. She touched all!"—Doug Davidson (actor, The Young and the Restless)

Her last on screen appearance was on May 3, 2013.  RIP Jeanne Cooper:
