Our thoughts are with her family.
Last night (May. 25, 2016), Jennifer Aniston announced her often estranged mother, Nancy Dow, has passed away at the age of 79.
“It is with great sadness that my brother John and I announce the passing of our Mother Nancy Dow. She was 79 years old and passed peacefully surrounded by family and friends after enduring a long illness,” Aniston, 47, tells PEOPLE in a statement.
“We ask that our family’s privacy be respected as we grieve our loss.”
Dow suffered a stroke in 2011 followed by a second stroke a year later, according to multiple reports.
