There are several speculations about the death of Grandma Duggar. Grandma would so often appear alongside her family on the TLC shows, ‘Counting On’ and ‘19 Kids & Counting’. The shows have been focusing on Grandma’s son Jim Bob and his wife Michelle, and their large family of 19 children with their spouses and children. The show has been running for slightly above 15 years. Grandma died on June 9th, 2019, at the age of 78 years. She only had two children Jim Bob and Deanna. She has notably been a lovely and kind-hearted grandma to her 21 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
Grandma Duggar was married to Jimmy Lee, “J.L.” Duggar who died from cancer about ten years ago. There are rumors that Grandma just slept but never woke up on Sunday afternoon. However, members of her family have refuted this story until the autopsy is out. Grandma Duggar’s young life was spent in the real estate industry as a real estate broker. She has been a very strong Christian. Her love for Jesus Christ was so unique that she would speak to everyone about it.
What happened to Grandma Duggar? How Did She Die?
So, what exactly happened to the lovely Grandma Duggar? This fear can only be dispelled through the many tributes her family has posted on their social media profiles. Jill Duggar Dillard, who is a grandson to Grandma and the fourth in the family of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s nineteen children, wrote on his Instagram profile,
“My heart breaks. My grandma died suddenly today! She was an amazing woman of God and such a great example to so many! Grandma, you are greatly missed by all who knew you!”

The Dillard family posted a long tribute for Grandma Duggar on their official family blog dillardfamily.com, by describing her guiding principles, especially the Christian values. Their tribute started with a Bible verse from 1st Thessalonians Chapter 4 verses 12-14, which talks about death in Jesus Christ. The tribute ends with a collection of pictorials in remembrance of Grandma Duggar.
Jana Duggar who is the eldest daughter to Jim Bob, sheds more light on her grandma’s death by posting about her last moments with Grandma Duggar. Jana says on her Instagram post on Monday that she drove Grandma to church that Sunday morning to worship her Savior. She went on to say that the same day, Grandma went to meet her Savior face to face. She concludes to say that it was the best way she would have chosen to finish out.

Grandma Duggar will be greatly missed!! ❤️ – On her last morning spent here on earth I drove Grandma to church where she worshiped her Savior. Later that afternoon, she went to meet Him face to face! I’d say that’s probably how she would’ve chosen to finish out the day if she got to pick. 😊 – Grandma made a deep impact on each of our lives—first and foremost through her relationship with Jesus Christ, and secondly through her example of sharing the good news of salvation through Jesus with others! She would always be talking about the day she would see her Savior’s face and how much she looked forward to it! Yesterday was that day! She knew where she’d spend eternity and wanted everyone else to know that for themselves too. – This song reminds me of Grandma’s life. – 🎶 “When We See Christ” 🎶 Sometimes the day seems long, Our trials hard to bear. We’re tempted to complain, to murmur and despair. But Christ will soon appear to catch his bride away! All tears forever over in God's eternal day! — IT WILL BE WORTH IT ALL WHEN WE SEE JESUS! — Life's trials will seem so small when we see Christ. One glimpse of his dear face, all sorrow will erase. So, BRAVELY RUN THE RACE TILL WE SEE CHRIST. – May we all be reminded to run this race of life looking at the Author and Finisher of our faith. “Only one life, twill soon be past—only what’s done for Christ will last.” • #grandmaduggar #leavingalegacy #weloveyou
Every one of the Duggar family has poured out their tributes to their magnanimous Grandma.

Her health has not been well since then.
On another post, it is reported that Grandma Duggar was found floating on the pool next to the big house, and the Coroner was seen taking her away.

We can only wish the family peace and may the soul of Grandma Duggar rest in eternal peace.
