Peggy Lipton has sadly passed away.

The star’s daughters Kidada and Rashida Jones announced in a statement in the Los Angeles Times on Saturday (May 11) that their mother had died. She was 72.

“She made her journey peacefully with her daughters and nieces by her side. We feel so lucky for every moment we spent with her,” Peggy‘s daughters say in the statement. “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.”

Peggy rose to fame in 1968 when she starred in ABC’s hit crime drama The Mod Squad.
