"She went to sleep and didn't wake up," Goldberg's mother told the Sun Times.

Goldberg's first major role came in the 2001 action sequel Jurassic Park III. She also had a recurring role on the CBS Drama Judging Amy before landing a major role on 7th Heaven in 2002.

On the WB drama, Goldberg played Sarah Glass, the love interest of eldest son Matt Camden, played by actor Barry Watson. Watson took to Twitter today to send his condolences.

Goldberg also guest starred on a number of other dramas, including Without A Trace, CSI, In Plain Sight, and House, and had a six-episode recurring role on the rebooted 90210.
