Bettina Bradbury Dead at 64

Former daytime soap opera writer Bettina F. Bradbury died on January 13. She was 64.

Her son, Danny Karapetian, shared the news on Facebook.

"It is my very sad duty to report that my Mom Bettina passed away this morning," he wrote. "She was an indefatigable force of nature, a talented and decorated writer, and a loving mother, sister, and friend to everyone she knew. Remember her for her humor, her hugs, and the eternal optimism she endowed in her family, colleagues, friends, fans, and children. She will be missed, and her absence is already deeply felt. Love you Mom, forever."

Daughter of famed science fiction writer Ray Bradbury, known mostly for his stunning novel Fahrenheit 451, and Marguerite McClure, Bradbury proved that the writing gene can be passed down. She studied Film/History at USC School of Cinematic Arts.

Bradbury worked at The Young and the Restless as executive producer John Conboy's assistant. She went on to write for Capitol, Santa Barbara, All My Children, One Life to Live and Days of our Lives. She earned three Daytime Emmys and seven Writers Guild of America Awards for her work in daytime television.

More recently, she had been working on a a memoir, "Growing Up Bradbury: Life With A Saturday Father."

"I am writing a memoir about the great life and times of growing up in the sixties in the company of child/parent Ray Bradbury," she revealed online.
