Actress Peggy Lipton passed away on Saturday (May 11) after suffering from colon cancer at the age of 72. As many fans and friends mourn Lipton’s death, her ex-husband, Quincy Jones shared a loving tribute on social media.
“There is absolutely no combination of words that can express the sadness I feel after losing my beloved Peggy Lipton,” he wrote. “Regardless of the paths that our lives took us on, I can say with the utmost certainty, that love is eternal.”
The tribute also shared a few words from Jones and Lipton’s daughters, Kidada and Rashida. “Thank you for all the love and support over the past couple of days,” they wrote. “In lieu of flowers or gifts, you can make a donation to Seasons Hospice, the wonderful team who took such great care of our mom.”
Lipton and Jones tied the knot in 1974. They had their two daughters, Kidada and Rashida Jones in 1974 and 1976 respectively. The couple spent 14 years together before they separated and eventually divorced in 1990. Lipton is best known for her roles in Twin Peaks and The Mod Squad.
