Rest In Peace, Peggy Lipton (1946-2019)

Peggy Lipton as Norma Jennings in Twin Peaks (1990)

Peggy Lipton, who we all know and love as Double R Diner owner Norma Jennings in Twin Peaks, has died of cancer on Saturday, May 11, 2019. She also starred in The Mod Squad and had various roles in film and TV, from The Alfred Hitchcock Hour to House of Lies, in addition to a career in music.

A statement from her daughters Rashida and Kidada Jones as published by the Los Angeles Times:

“She made her journey peacefully with her daughters and nieces by her side. We feel so lucky for every moment we spent with her. We can’t put all of our feelings into words right now, but we will say: Peggy was and will always be our beacon of light, both in this world and beyond. She will always be a part of us.”

Norma, I’ll see you in my dreams.

  1. I have been madly in love with Peggy Lipton since I was eight years old, when I first saw her on The Mod Squad. She was beautiful, and ethereal. R.I.P, Ms. Lipton.

  2. My heart is with the family as I share their pain experiencing the same as my mother endures this hateful disease. I pray God stays with you and make you strong as I say the same
    Prayer for myself.
    Love always…

  3. Beautiful wonderful actress Peggy.
    Desperately sad at your passing.
    Her craft of acting was effortless.
    It is no wonder or surprise as to why so many Twin Peaks fans like myself loved her. God bless her and my sympathies and condolences to her family xx
