Peggy Lipton, the star of '60s TV show The Mod Squad and the '90s show Twin Peaks, died of cancer Saturday.
She was 72.
According to a statement released by her daughters Rashida and Kidada Jones, the actress was surrounded by family when she passed away "peacefully".
They said: "We are heartbroken that our beloved mother passed away from cancer today.
"She made her journey peacefully with her daughters and nieces by her side. We feel so lucky for every moment we spent with her. We can't put all of our feelings into words right now but we will say: Peggy was, and will always be our beacon of light, both in this world and beyond. She will always be a part of us."
Lipton married music producer Quincy Jones in 1974 and they had two daughters. The couple divorced in 1989.
Lipton - who played the role of a Los Angeles-based hippie cop on The Mod Squad - was nominated for many Emmy awards and won a Golden Globe in 1971 for her performance in the acclaimed TV show.
The actress also played the role of Norma Jennings in Twin Peaks during the '90s, admitting she found the experience to be "very scary".
Speaking to The Times in a 1993 interview, she said: "I had a push-pull thing inside me that I wanted to do it. I had become so insulated in my world as a mother, that I didn’t know how to pick up the phone and call anybody to put myself out there."
