Jennifer Love Hewitt is mourning the loss of her mother Patricia, who died Tuesday in Los Angeles at age 67. Patricia died from complications due to cancer.

“She was an angel to all who knew her and they are grateful she is now in a better place. They ask for privacy at this difficult time,” the actress’ rep told Celebuzz.

Patricia, a speech-language pathologist, is survived by her daughter, 33, and son, Dr. Todd Hewitt.

In a 2010 interview, the actress joked that her mother supported her career decisions — even her role as a prostitute on The Client List.

“She was like, ‘So let’s review … For 15 years people have been talking about your boobs. Earlier this year, you wrote about your hoo haw in a book. Now you’re playing a crack ho on TV.’ She was like, ‘Do you think maybe you could do an animated movie next?’ ” Hewitt joked to People in 2010.
