Jennifer Aniston's estranged mother, Nancy Dow, has died. The actress announced this in a statement she released to People on Wednesday. She wrote;
'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. We ask that our family's privacy be respected as we grieve our loss.”
The actress visited her ailing mother for the first time after nearly 5-years on May 12. According to Radar Online, Dow was rushed from her apartment unit in Toluca Lake, a suburb of Los Angeles, just after midnight on Sunday by four paramedics. A neighbor who witnessed the emergency situation said that she 'was apparently close to death.' 'Her hands were curled up to her face and her skin was grey,' another source told Radar Online. 'She was wheeled out then very late at night at 1.30am. On Monday morning, all the lights were on in the apartment and the door was wide open.'
The 47-year-old actress, whose latest movie is called Mother's Day, has said previously that the reason they were not close is because Dow 'was very critical of her.'
