Beth passed away in a hospital in Hawaii after she was put in a medically induced coma. She was rushed to the Queen’s Medical Center on Saturday after suffering from a "choking" emergency at home.

Duane took to Twitter on the day of her death to confirm the news. He wrote: "It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”


Reports revealed that the official cause of death was the stage II throat cancer she was battling with. The reality star was first diagnosed with it in 2017 but a few months later she was declared cancer-free.

Unfortunately, the disease returned last November and doctors informed her it was terminal. In April she was, once again rushed to a hospital with complications from her diagnosis.


On the day of her passing, Beth's family had their first televised address were Duane revealed that they planned to honor her with two separate events. One of the events would be in Hawaii and the other one will be held in Colorado.

During the interview, Duane’s daughter Lyssa Chapman said: "We would like to do some sort of water paddle out, we know that for sure," adding “It actually makes us feel, you know, warm, to know how much our mother was loved."

WGN America will air the upcoming series, Dog's Most Wanted, which will feature Duane and his late wife. It was planned to be released in 2020.
