Viewers had been wondering about the lack of appearances on Counting On but many assumed she was busy or no longer wanted to be in the spotlight.

Many of the Duggar family members paid tribute to Grandma Mary Duggar on Instagram yesterday but none of them mentioned how she died. It was sudden, something that was noted by Jill Duggar. That was the extent of the information revealed to the public.
