Just days after reports indicated that Jennifer Aniston has finally patched things up with her estranged mother, Nancy Dow has died.
According to People Magazine, Dow, who starred in classic television shows such as The Beverly Hillbillies and The Wild West in the sixties, suffered a stroke back in 2011 followed by another one later that year.
The actress released a statement that said, "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."
According to In Touch Weekly on Wednesday, Aniston visited her mother for the first time in nearly five years on May 12th. Dow was not invited to Aniston's first wedding to Brad Pitt back in 2000 and she also didn't attend the actress' second wedding to her husband Justin Theroux in August of last year.
For the most part, fans have been supportive of the Mother's Day actress, sending out their condolences via twitter:
