    🙁  Wow…  I am terribly saddened by the loss of this legend.  A great actress and also a great lady with so much spunk and positive energy and always a hoot in any interview.  Hard to imagine Genoa City without her.  

    Thank you Jeanne for over twenty years of watching you fill the screen with brilliance and energy.  I started watching Y&R back when Katherine and Rex were together — they were an incredible couple!  Over the years my favorite Kay moments were probably any time she had a heart-to-heart with Victor, her friendship with Nikki, any scene with John Abbott, and of course her legendary chemistry with Jess Walton’s Jill.  My favorite Kay storyline was definitely the battle over the Chancellor Estate.

    I hope they do a series of memorial tributes as poignant as DOOL did for Alice Horton. 

    Almost all of the great all-time soap matriarchs have now passed away (Helen Wagner, Anna Lee, Frances Reid, Charita Bauer)…  🙁

    LOVED Mrs. Chancellor and Jeanne Cooper.  Genoa City will not be the same without Mrs. C. 

    For me Jill versus Kay may be best soap rivialry of all time.  Cooper and Brenda Dickson were an excellent on screen team.

    Wow. I cannot imagine Y&R without Kay Chancellor. The storyline with Jill and Katherine was always my favorite. I’ve been watching since the very beginning when Katherine was married to Phillip and Jill was her paid companion. So many memorable scenes created by Jeanne Cooper over the last 40 years. I am truly appreciative of the endless entertainment she has provided for the last 4 decades.

    This is the saddest news ive heard in awhile. She was and will always be, THE QUEEN of Y&R and maybe of daytime itself.

    She is the matriarch of Y&R and always will be. She’s left a legacy to be cherished forever. She acted her soul out right up until the very end. I still remember her domination of 2008 when she was on all the time and I never once tired of her; in-fact, I was grateful to see her getting so much material and nailing it every single day. 

    ^Thanks for posting the link to her Emmy win. At least she nabbed one out of her 10 nominations.

    I am heartbroken over this loss.  “The Duchess” Katherine Chancellor has always been my favorite character on Y&R or any soap for that matter.  I savored every second of Jeanne Cooper on screen.  I was always captivated by her portrayal and thought she should have won several Emmys for her efforts.  If I had to choose a favorite storyline it would be her playing both roles of Kay and Marge.  The Emmy should have been hers that year because she was BRILLIANT!   Daytime won’t ever see the likes of her again.  What a void left now at Y&R.  Truly the end of an era on that show.  I feel bereft when I think about it all.  But I am glad Ms. Cooper is no longer suffering.   
    Does anyone know any other place besides You Tube where you can find scenes and clips of Jeanne’s work on Y&R, particularly the early years?  I started watching in 1984, so I missed all of the 70s and the facelift storyline.  I’d love to go back and watch her stories over again.  Why don’t they release a box set of DVDs?  I think it would have robust sales.

    RIP, Jeanne, and thank you for all the years of sterling entertainment you gave us.

    So much love and respect for Jeanne Cooper.  It’s hard to believe she’s gone, and she and Kay Chancellor seemed like treasures we’d get to have forever.  I hope she gets an amazing tribute.

    My heart is heavy with the news of this legends passing.  The world has lost a talented person who by all accounts was also incredibly kind to all those she ever met.
