New reports by TMZ indicate the death of legendary actress Peggy Lipton. The famed actress was best known for her role as Julia Barnes in the television series The Mod Squad, which was very successful back in the early 1960s to 1970s. Moreover, Lipton even went onto winning a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama series in the year of 1970 because of that role. Furthermore, she successfully transitioned into a noteworthy singing career while also scoring other major Hollywood roles (Twin Peaks, A Dog's Purpose & Angie Tribeca) While the LA-born starlet was already famous in her own right, she married the super-producer Quincy Jones in 1974 and later divorced him in 1990. The two share daughters, Kidada (The Intern and also was Tupac's fiance prior to his death) and Rashida Jones (Parks & Recreations). 

According to the aforementioned news outlet, the Twin Peaks star lost an enduring battle to cancer. The giant TV star's daughter Rashida stated in response to her dear mother's death "We feel so lucky for every moment we spent with her." Indeed, unfortunate news especially on Mother's Day. The actress was 72 years old. We offer both the Jones and Lipton family our deepest and sincerest condolences.

RIP.
