NEW YORK, NEW YORK (KWWL) - Actress Lynn Redgrave has died at the age of 67 after a 7 year battle with breast cancer. 

Her children, Ben, Pema and Annabel, say Redgrave died peacefully Sunday night at her home in Connecticut.

"Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven year journey with breast cancer," they said in a statement Monday. "She lived, loved and worked harder than ever before. The endless memories she created as a mother, grandmother, writer, actor and friend will sustain us for the rest of our lives. Our entire family asks for privacy through this difficult time."

Redgrave's death comes just a year after her niece, Natasha Richardson, died following a skiing accident.
