If you grew up watching The Young and the Restless like I did, then today is a very sad day in your life.
Jeanne Cooper aka Katherine Chancellor passed away today after battling an undisclosed illness.
Katherine Chancellor was the archetype for what you wanted a soap character to be. Some people pointed to Erica Kane as being the ultra soap diva, but I tell you no one came close to Katherine Chancellor.
Cooper leaves behind three children and a host of fans who'll never forget what she meant to us.
