It’s a difficult time in the life of Jennifer Love Hewitt, as her mother passed away from cancer yesterday (June 12).

The “Ghost Whisperer” actress is in mourning at the loss of Patricia, a speech-language pathologist, who was 67 years old.

Jennifer’s rep told press, “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.”

Back in 2010, J Love told press that her mom was pumped about her new gig “The Client List.” "My mom's like, 'I'm so proud. You're pole dancing and you're going to play a prostitute. Awesome!' It's like, 'Yeah, what you always dreamed about, mama!' But you know, it's a great part."
