By Gina DiFalco,

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s mom, Patricia, has passed away at the age of 67.

The Client List star’s mother was a speech pathologist and leaves behind both Hewitt and her son, Dr. Todd Hewitt.

"She was an angel to all who knew her and they are grateful she is now in a better place," Hewitt’s rep told Us Weekly. "They ask for privacy at this difficult time."

Patricia died on Tuesday as a result of complications with cancer, says the rep.

"Her family mourns her loss," Hewitt’s rep also said in a statement, People reports, adding “No further details are being provided."

Hewitt hasn’t talked openly about her mother being sick, but did open up about how she found her newest role as a prostitute on the Lifetime series The Client List hilarious.

Hewitt recalled that her mother had told her “'So let's review ... For 15 years people have been talking about your boobs. Earlier this year, you wrote about your hoo haw in a book. Now you're playing a crack ho on TV.' She was like, 'Do you think maybe you could do an animated movie next?' "

Access Hollywood reports that Hewitt was at the Monte Carlo Music festival this week, but left on Tuesday.
