Mary O'Connor -- Hugh Hefner's loveable secretary/den-mother who was featured on "Girls Next Door" -- passed away this weekend ... after working at the mansion for more than 40 years.

Hefner tweeted the bad news Sunday ... saying, "Mary passed away today. We loved her more than words can say."

Sources at Playboy tell TMZ ... Mary -- who was reportedly in her 80s -- had been dealing with some health issues recently ... but Hef is still taking the death "extremely hard." We're told Mary was "the rock" of the Playboy mansion and the mood at the house is "incredibly sad."

Hugh's ex-GF, Kendra Wilkinson, also tweeted about Mary's death ... saying, "RIP Mary O'Connor. She was an amazing person who helped me through so much. But I know she's happy with her boo Captain Bob. :)"

I used to watch "the girls next door" & always liked Mary. So sad that she has passed away. For me, I just couldn't see this woman working in that kind of an environment. But it seemed to me that she was happy working there, may she R.I.P. She was like everyone's grandmother.

That's upsetting. I bet the new girls were mean to her...especially Crystal. Kendra, Holly, and Bridget were so sweet.

I am so sad to hear that Mary passed away. I always enjoyed her on The Girls Next Door. Like someone else posted she must have went to her grave with alot of secrets but she would have never talked about anyone. RIP Mary, I am sure the mansion misses you like crazy.
