In Memory of Mary Duggar

Grandma Duggar and Ivy Seewald

It is with heavy hearts that we pass along a devastating piece of news that the Duggars have just shared. Grandma Mary Duggar passed away this afternoon. We (blog authors Lily and Ellie) were blessed to meet her several years ago and see her again multiple times thereafter. She radiated with the love of Christ and was very kind and welcoming. The first time we met her, she introduced herself as "Grandma," which shows just how much she valued her role as a grandmother.

Mary passed away exactly two weeks after the arrival of her 13th great-grandchild, Ivy Seewald, who was born on her 78th birthday. Below is a tribute that the family wrote for their beloved mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great-grandmother.


We are so sad to share that Grandma Duggar (Mary) passed away Sunday afternoon, June 9th, 2019. Mary Lester Duggar grew up in Farmington, Arkansas and was married almost 50 years to J.L. (Jimmy Lee) Duggar who preceded her in death.
 

Mary found great joy in sharing her love for Jesus and her own story of how at age 15 she asked Christ to forgive her for her sins. It was at that time she committed the rest of her life to live for Him, a commitment she kept with devotion. She loved to share with others how they too could be forgiven of their sins, live a fulfilling life as a Christian, and one day spend eternity in heaven.

She is survived by her daughter Deanna Duggar and her son Jim Bob Duggar, 21 grandchildren* 13 great-grandchildren, with several more great-grandchildren on the way!
 
Mary Duggar was also a successful real estate broker who owned Good Neighbor Realty and was noted in Northwest Arkansas for being the broker who put together the property sale for the John Q. Hammons Holiday Inn & Convention Center in Springdale. 

Grandma Mary Duggar has been on the TLC shows, "19 Kids & Counting" and "Counting On" with her family for over 15 years. She is greatly loved and will be missed so very much! She lived a tremendous life as a follower of Christ, a wife, a devoted mother, a loving mother-in-law, and a much-loved grandmother. Proverbs 31:10-31 describes the virtuous woman, indeed she personified these beautiful verses with her life.


We deeply appreciate your prayers for our family and all who loved Mary during this time.

*The 21 grandchildren include Jim Bob and Michelle's 19 biological children plus nephew Tyler Huchins, as well as Deanna's daughter, Amy King.

    My prayer are with you and your family during this time of grief and sorrow. Each time I watched, she brought me closer in my faith. I know she is with her late husband dancing and loving JESUS face-to-face! May that bring your family comfort during this time. Peace and blessings.

  20. Dear, Lord Jesus Please be with The Duggar family as they say goodbye to their grandmother. Comfort their hearts and make their memory’s last until they all meet again one day. We know Lord Our Prayers are not so you will but our prayers are so that we have the faith that you will. Amen love you and your family ❤️

  21. Oh my... That's sad but also something surreal. The universe had a plan (or God) in that Ivy Jane was born on Grandma Mary's birthday. It's like she was the blessing (early delivery unlike her brothers) as Grandma Mary was unbeknown to all on her way to the next life. May their family heal fast and lean on each other during this time. Good Vibes to them!

    1. That's just what I thought also,and the Lord also gave them the blessings of all the upcoming babies in November to help heal their pain,just like He gave JB and Michelle the blessing of twins after miscarring Caleb and the blessing of many grandbabies after losing Jubilee,the Lord always has a plan.

  100. What a mighty God we serve. I am so thankful to have known Mary through the Duggar's family TV program. What joy Mary was. She was devoted to her family, and they all loved her so much. She was kind, gentle and displayed a loving spirit. She always filled the room with a warm smile, willingness to serve others, and love. Just like Jesus had taught her. What a fine example of being a humble servant, that penetrated through out her family her values. I will greatly miss Mrs Duggar, now she is Face to Face, and has Met her Master. Well done, thy good and faithful servant. May God comfort this family, who I have loved for many years, collect your tears and hold on to God's unchanging hands. The Lord is our helper. Trust Him to provide and to strengthen you, give you peace and hope for tomorrow.

  101. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8). Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in ALL circumstances; for this is GOD’s will for you in Christ Jesus (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). Continue to spread the word of God and live and love the Bible principals just like your Grandma did. It was because of her salvation was introduced to y’all. The Lord saved her so one day she would witness to you and you too would be saved. I know Grandpa Duggar was happy to have his bride back with him in paradise. I too lost my Grandma a few years ago and she was able to meet two of her three greats. I treasure every day we had together and the loving moments we talked about God and Jesus. May the Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make his face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace (Numbers 6:24-26). Y’all will be in my prayers.

  146. Very sorry for your loss. It's always so sad to lose someone that is loved so much. I don't know how her health was, but in the passing of elderly people who are suffering with health issues, there's a sense of peace in knowing they are relieved of their earthly pain and suffering when they pass away. We want to keep them here as long as possible, but I know many elderly people who've lost a spouse say they wanted to go and be with them. I'm sure she's having a grand reunion with her loved ones on the other side! Will greatly miss seeing her! I don't know her, but I sure admired her!

  157. No way!! Stop lying (I know y'all would never kid about this but I am so sad) I am crying!! I so wanted to see her and Ivy on their birthdays. At least she is with God now and she is happy. I am 11 and my Papa died when I was 10. I know the pain. I cried for a week and had to do a play 6 days later. I am so sorry.

  159. Such sad news. Prayers for the Duggar family. Can't help but think about Jessa having baby Ivy ten days early instead of 5 days late, and having her right on Grandma Duggar's birthday (the only non-twin shared birthday), only to lose Grandma two weeks later. Sounds like there is a reason for everything. Such a blessing that baby Ivy will continue to make Grandma's birthday a celebration.

  164. My thoughts are with the Duggar Family, especially with her two children, Jim Bob and Deanna. Grandma Mary seemed like a staple in her families lives and she will be greatly missed. She is now with her husband looking over all the little ones and the ones who will be born soon.

  187. Ivy is something special to be born on her grandmothers birthday. There is a reason for everything. As my grandma said, one day she will pass to let a new one be born. That is part of life. It's a circle.
