“It is with great sadness that my brother John and I announce the passing of our Mother Nancy Dow,” Jennifer told the mag. “She was 79 years old and passed peacefully surrounded by family and friends after enduring a long illness. We ask that our family’s privacy be respected as we grieve our loss.”
Nancy was married to Jen‘s dad John Aniston from 1965-1980. She appeared in the 1960s television series The Beverly Hillbillies and The Wild Wild West.
