She continued by saying that she had no words and is still in disbelief over the fact that her step-mother is gone. The former bounty hunter then asked her fans to pray for the Chapman family, adding at the end, she said:
“We lost our strongest member.”
Lyssa's fans commented on the post, writing that their prayers are with the bounty hunting family and expressing their sympathy for their loss.
Beth died on June 26, following a brief hospitalization; before her death, she had been battling throat cancer, and stopped chemotherapy, choosing instead to trust her faith to get her through it.
At the deceased's memorial service, at Fort DeRussy Beach in Waikiki, family, friends, and fans gathered to pay their respects to the late reality star. Lyssa shared a picture of a painting of her step-mother surrounded by a floral arrangement, the caption read:
“Feel free to bring flowers."
Those present at the memorial brought ocean-friendly flowers, and Duane revealed that his late wife asked him to make sure he buried her in an authentic Hawaiian style.
The bounty hunter added that Hawaii was the late reality star’s favorite place in the world, and she loved it and the people a lot. The Chapman family cremated Beth, chanted and said prayers for her in the Hawaii fashion before their patriarch got on a boat to carry out the final rites.
Duane spent the final days of the deceased’s life by her side in the hospital, and he was holding her hand when she passed away by 5:32 am.
Following her demise, the bounty hunter said he didn’t know what to do during Beth's attacks, and all he had to say was “In Jesus name,” and the deceased would ask him to say it more.
Duane said his wife of thirteen years told them not to worry, asked them if they were okay, and never accepted that cancer would win. The Chapmans’ will host another memorial in Colorado for Beth, but the details are yet to be released.
