Over the last 36 hours or so, Corbin Bernsen returned to his facebook page relating to fans and followers everywhere his thoughts, and to share in his grief over the passing of his beloved mother, the one and only Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) of The Young and the Restless!  There were two touching posts  1) About Mother’s Day 2) Watching his mother’s final Y&R scene for the first time.  Here are excerpts we thought we would share!

Corbin posted on Mother’s Day without Jeanne “I would also like to celebrate and honor all mother’s out there who have shared your stories with me here over the last several weeks. I said a while back that I felt selfish, so much space here about me, me, me. So tomorrow, in honor of my mother, I want to do what she would have me do and that is to celebrate and honor you. Mother’s are a mysterious thing – a great wonder. Someone today asked if it was harder to loose my mom or my dad. I’m sure it’s different for everyone, but my mom, beside being my mom, was Jeanne Cooper, this bigger than life…force. At times, I had to sit back, with many of you and just watch in awe as this magnificent woman moved through space and time. So to loose her has been a bit more difficult. Perhaps just by the enormity of it all. That said, I cried for my father more… not really getting all on the table before he passed, with many questions still to ask. With my mom, it has all been laid out, we knew how we felt about one another, there were no secrets, no false claims. And it is difficult, if for no other reason that I miss that ability to share truths.”

Corbin on watching Jeanne’s final Y&R scene:  “My brother in law shared with me her final scene from Young and Restless, one I had heard about only yesterday. Her final bit of “acting,” or as I’m coming to believe, “being.” Mom never acted, she fully became the role. Like with so many things in her life, the lines we usually draw between where we stand on issues or the line between actor and character – they simply didn’t exist for her. All things simply “are.” Well, as many of you know by now, that was her final scene. In it I saw a woman, who some two months ago “knew” that this was to be her farewell scene. The end of a 40 year journey on the show and a sixty year journey as an actor. Her simple “goodnight” at the end – an improvised line – pretty much said it all. But the entire two minutes or so – if you study them carefully – is the stuff of legends. Each word, her mannerisms… all extraordinary now in the context of what was coming. I’m attaching it here, watch closely and you’ll see a woman in complete control of her destiny – right up until the end. My mom. Wow! A mystery. A magnificence!”

she’s climbing the stairway to heaven..unforgettable scene….every time I hear the song “stairway to heaven”, I will stop what I am doing and say a prayer to her. She will be missed sooooo much. Y&R will never be the same without her either. She could never be replaced.

Corbin seems like such a great son!!! My thoughts are with him and his family. Today is a tough day for them with Jeanne not being there. She’s with them though and she will keep an eye on them.

Loved the scene and so sad it is the last…

My deepest sympathy to the family. My parents watched Y&R as I was growing up and I will always remember coming home from school for lunch and watching with the. My parents were the biggest fan. Even thought my father is no longer with us he loved, loved Mrs. Chancellor. He always said what a great actress she was and he loved the storyline between her ,Mr. Chancellor and Jill. They got all of the family hooked on the show and we have also been watching when we became adults. I will miss Mrs. Chancellor the character and the actress Jeanne Cooper. The show will never be the same without her. God Bless .

Jeanne Cooper became Katherine Chancellor and her final scene saying goodnight to Jill was perfect. It felt like she knew and she was saying goodbye her way,. Young and Restless will never be the same without her and I’m glad they are giving her a complete show after almost 40 years with the show. Saw her on Price is Right for the 40th anniversary she was sitting on a couch and didn’t look well but was her usual self. A strong charismatic women who will never be forgotten

It’s sad it was her last scene as I would have liked to see more, but in a way, it’s a good last scene. She said so much without words. She looked very frail. Don’t know if that was Jeanne or Kay. I see her climbing that staircase. I guess Kay won’t make it down. We miss her already.

It was an amazing scene, now hard to watch. It’s hard to believe this last storyline and scene
was not tied to a plan to leave show, even if at very least, temporarily.

That last scene was perfection! Everything all played out perfectly because a higher being had it all planned perfectly and Jeanne saw the signs and went along. I’m sure she didn’t want to go, but it was her time and thankfully it ended the way it should for her and her character’s last scenes! Even JFP said that they had no idea that was going to be her last day shooting, everyone assumed she would be back.

But the way it played out was perfect! Her last day of shooting her scenes were with Jill! She and Jill were at peace, and Jill even offered to help her up the stairs. How perfect and full circle is that??? And Jeanne ad libbing “goodnight” just says it all, and wrapped up everything wonderfully!

And I agree that Corbin seems like a wonderful son! It was so great of him to keep us all up to date with what was going on and to let us all pray and be there with them in spirit while all of this was going on. Who else would have done all of that for the fans/supporters? Fantastic Corbin!

ODE TO ACTRESS JEANNIE COOPER
By Janie Martin
TO OTHERS, THE UNIVERSE, A MYSTERY TOO DEEP;
EXCEPT FOR YOU, WHO’S ALREADY HAD A GLANCING PEEK
OF WHAT IT’S REALLY ALL ABOUT;
YOU MY DEAR, HAVEN’T A DOUBT.

ONLY A SENSUOUS SCORPIO
SUCH AS YOU COULD KNOW,
WE’RE ALL, AFTER ALL ONLY ACTORS
IN A VERY SPECIAL SHOW.

LUCKY FOR YOU WITH TWO STAGES ON WHICH TO PLAY,
WITH YOUR GREAT ACTING TO DISPLAY,
YOU SERVED LIFE TO US ON A BEAUTIFUL TRAY.

ENMESHED IN THE LIGHT; THE ESSENCE OF ALL,
YOU HELPED US TO WALK,
WHERE BUT BEFORE WE DID CRAWL.

HERE AT LAST IS THE “STAR” TO SHOW US THE WAY,
OPEN THE CURTAIN OF LIFE, AND ON WITH THE PLAY.

I gave this poem to Jeannie Cooper in a birthday card I gave to her the night I sang at her party in Vegas at the Old Aladdin when Corbin was also there. I have photos on my website of me singing there. I loved her so much as a fan. Janie Martin singer

I have no way to get my poem above Ode To Actress Jeannie Cooper to Corbin her son because I do not do Facebook or twitter, so if someone could get it to him from me, I would appreciate it very much.
