Mary Leona Duggar

Grandma Duggar (Mary) passed away at home on Sunday afternoon, June 9th, 2019, at the age of 78. Mary Leona 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 one daughter, Deanna Duggar; one son, Jim Bob Duggar; 21 grandchildren, Amy King, Joshua Duggar, Jana Duggar, John-David Duggar, Jill Dillard, Jessa Seewald, Jinger Vuolo, Joseph Duggar, Josiah Duggar, Joy-Anna Forsyth, Jedidiah Duggar, Jeremiah Duggar, Jason Duggar, James Duggar, Justin Duggar, Jackson Duggar, Johannah Duggar, Jennifer Duggar, Tyler Hutchins, Jordyn-Grace Duggar, and Josie Duggar; 13 great-grandchildren, Mackynzie Duggar, Michael Duggar, Marcus Duggar, Israel Dillard, Meredith Duggar, Spurgeon Seewald, Henry Seewald, Samuel Dillard, Mason Duggar, Gideon Forsyth, Garrett Duggar, Felicity Vuolo, and Ivy Seewald; and several more great-grandchildren on the way.

Mary Duggar was a successful real estate broker who owned Good Neighbor Realty and was noted in Northwest Arkansas as 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 TLC’s “19 Kids & Counting” and “Counting On” with her family for over 15 years. Many referred to Mary as “America’s Grandma.” 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 and she indeed personified these beautiful verses with her life.

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

Services were Monday, June 17, at Cross Church in Springdale with interment at Fairview Memorial Gardens in Fayetteville.

Dear Duggar Family,
My heart breaks for you, but I know sweet Grandma Mary is safe in the arms of her Lord and her husband.
I have watched your family on TV since the beginning and Grandma Mary was just a joy. She was such a perfect example of a Christian woman, and an awesome Grandma. How blessed you all were to have shared so much with her. I will pray for all of you to be comforted by Jesus and by your memories of your precious loved one.
With my deepest sympathy,
Jeri Rossi

Duggar family,
I’m so very sorry for your loss. I have watched your show from the beginning and always loved episodes with Grandma. Grandma Duggar was an incredibly feisty woman who loved our Lord first. May she now Rest In Peace with Him. May your healing be swift and all the memories sustain you until you see her again.

She definitely was “America’s Grandma” , it was as if we knew the Duggar family personally as I have watched your shows from the start. My heart breaks for each of you from young to old. But Sunday afternoon was a glad reunion day for Grandma, not only did see Papa Duggar but the one she worshipped, Jesus….My prayers for everyone and know one day you will be reunited with Grandma. God Bless each and everyone…

JimBob, Michelle and Deanna,

So saddened to hear of the loss of your precious mother. I only know her through seeing her on tv but I do believe that she was a believer in the LORD Jesus Christ…so now she is resting at the feet of the Savior she so faithfully served. We will miss her but we will be reunited with her at Jesus’ feet for all eternity. We mourn, but not as those who have no hope…deepest condolences. Our family is praying for yours.
