    Days Of Our Lives' Molly Burnett's Mother Passes Away.

    Thursday, December 08 2011

    Burnett (RK/
    We grieve with her.

    It is with great sadness that reports that Molly Burnett's (Melanie) mother, Katie Burnett, passed away on December 7.

    Katie was battling Interstitial Lung Disease. The details pertaining to her passing have not been released, however, Molly thanked her friends and fans for their condolences on Facebook. She wrote, "All of your notes mean very much to me. My mom passed away at the same hospital my brother was born at, 22 years exactly, almost to the minute. Something bigger than us I suppose. Thank you all very much."

    Katie Burnett was a lovely person, genuinely kind, and loving. She was a proud mother and someone you'd want in your corner. She is survived by Molly, her son Will, and husband David.

    This was agonizing to write. I had the pleasure of chatting with Katie several times on Twitter and she was a gem. A really genuinely sweet and good person. There were times in writing that I honestly wanted to scrap it and not report. I've always felt terrible for reporting on personal things for the actors and that's why we've always only posted births, weddings and deaths and tried to stay away from gossip best we can. Sending love and care to Molly and her family at this time.
