Actor Pierce Brosnan is mourning the death of his daughter Charlotte Brosnan, 41. The mother of two lost her three year battle with ovarian cancer on June 28.

Ovarian cancer also took the life of Charlotte's mother, Cassandra Harris, in 1991, who was married to Pierce at the time of her passing.

Pierce released a statement yesterday to PEOPLE, “On June 28 at 2 p.m. my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life, having succumbed to ovarian cancer. She was surrounded by her husband Alex, children Isabella and Lucas and brothers Christopher and Sean."

“Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl. We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon. We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences.”
