Wow. She will definitely be missed. P&PTs to her family, both IRL and her Young and the Restless one.

It's really sad to see stars that I knew from my youth die. It makes me feel so old.


RIP Jeanne

So sad :( Although I haven't watched YOTR in years, it was one we watched faithfully when I was younger. She was such a great character, and will be missed.
