Jeanne Cooper, Corbin Bernsen's Mother, who played Katherine Chancellor on the venerable soap opera 'The Young and The Restless' for 40 years, died on her 84th birthday. She had been in and out of hospitals since 2011 and succumbed to an undisclosed illness.
Bersen wrote on Facebook:
“My mother passed away this morning just a short time ago, peaceful with my sister by her side, in her sleep. I was going to visit this afternoon, thought I had time. Reminder to self – time is a precious thing. I too am at peace however. I said my goodbyes several times over during the last few weeks. …I’ll go one last time now for a gentle kiss a final farewell for this lifetime. 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!”
