Over the weekend, actress Peggy Lipton passed away. The actress, best known for her roles on "The Mod Squad" and "Twin Peaks," was 72 when she died on Saturday.

Lipton is also the mother to "Park and Recreation" actress Rashida Jones. According to a statement from her daughters, she peacefully passed away after battling cancer.

“She made her journey peacefully with her daughters and nieces by her side,” Kidada and Rashida Jones said. “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,” the statement continued. “She will always be a part of us.”

The late actress shares her two daughters with Grammy-winning producer Quincy Jones. The couple was married from 1974 until 1990.

Lipton won a Golden Globe for best actress in a television drama for her role on the ABC series "The Mod Squad," which ran from 1968-1973. She also appeared on "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" and "Bewitched." After taking a break from show business while married, Peggy began acting again in 2017 in a revival of the show "Twin Peaks." She also would go on to appear in "A Dog's Purpose" and "Angie Tribeca."
