My Tribute to Jeanne Cooper

I was reading a tribute page for Jeanne Cooper and I read something that made me smile :)

Katherine Chancellor 1928-2013
She titled her 2008 memoirs Live Until I Die, and there's no question that widely admired corporate executive and philanthropist Katherine Chancellor, who passed away on August 1st following a short illness, lived life to the fullest. She was 84.
Born Katherine Shepherd, she grew up in Genoa City and attended Genoa City University before marrying high school and college classmate Gary Reynolds. Following his sudden death, Katherine took the helm of the Reynolds family's business empire, ultimately turning its management over to her second husband, Phillip Chancellor II, and renaming it Chancellor Industries. She assumed sole leadership when Phillip died in 1975.

I knew I had a connection  .......... I was born Catherine Shepherd  ;-)

Unfortunately, the videos are geo blocked, so I can't see them - looks like I will have to wait until they screen the episodes here in Australia

So to Jeanne Cooper, I say thank you!  I have watched Y&R for as long as I can remember and have always loved the storylines involving Katherine Chancellor ;-)

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.
Remember, any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.


  1. yes she was one of my favourites too ,though i havent watched it for many years now.xx

  2. I loved to watch her on DOOL too - so many times when my kids were babies and it was feeding times, that show was my distraction! She was such a lovely looking lady, I just think it's such a pity that she played with her looks by the surgery & what-have-you. It's a trap that so many daytime soap actresses fall into... RIP
