Perennial TV Soap Star Jeanne Cooper Dies In Her Sleep Aged 84


Jeanne Cooper

Soap Opera favourite and mother, Jeanne Cooper has died. She was ages 84 and passed in her sleep. Tributes have been rolling in for the woman who played grande dame Katherine Chancellor for nearly four decades on The Young and the Restless.

“One of the last great broads in our business - Jeanne Cooper, Mom - is now stirring up trouble in great beyond,” her family said in a statement. Cooper will be remembered “as a daytime television legend and as a friend who will truly be missed by all of us here at the network,” Nina Tassler - president of CBS Entertainment – said, adding that the actress brought “indelible charm, class and talent to every episode.” Stars also took to Twitter to show their respects. “Heaven just gained one feisty angel,” cast member Melissa Claire Egan posted. “A very sad day for all of us. You will be deeply missed,” tweeted Jessica Collins. Cooper's 30-year marriage to Harry Bernsen ended in divorce. The couple have three children, Corbin, Caren and Collin, and eight grandchildren.

In 1984, Cooper’s most-famed moment arrived. Her real-life facelift was televised on the show as her character underwent the surgery at the same time, and she had no regrets about it. She said: "It opened up reconstructive surgery for so many people, youngsters getting things done. To this day, people will come up to me and say 'Thank you so much for doing that'. That was an incredible experience in my life."
