Pop Culture shared that the reality star had taken to social media to drop a tribute video to the late matriarch. Amy stated in the post's caption that she wanted to grieve by herself and that although it was Mary's celebration of life, she felt like a mess.

"Jill Duggar Dillard, the fourth of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 children, was the first to make the news her grandmother's death public."

She then went on to praise her late grandmother, writing:

"Not a day has gone by where I don't think of her, she wasn't just a Gma to me but more of a best friend. She was so so loved... and I'll cherish every memory I have of her. #untiliseeyouagain #puddinpop #sweetiebabe”

Fans will recall that Grandma Mary died of accidental drowning in June when she slipped and fell into a swimming pool in her Arkansas home. She was found by her daughter, Deanna, who subsequently alerted authorities. Mary was pronounced dead at the scene at age 78.

The news of her death came some months before Amy welcomed her first child – Daxton Ryan King – with her husband Dillon King, as per a USA Today story.

The happy couple had confirmed the news to PEOPLE magazine before they shared a post to social media.

The social media featured a picture that showed the new family in a hospital room with a blanket over them with the words, "God gave us you."

As regards Mary's death, Heavy recounted that Jill Duggar Dillard, the fourth of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 children, was the first to make the news her grandmother's death public.

The 28-year-old had taken to Instagram to pen a tribute where she stated that Mary "was a feisty, incredible woman who always took the time to talk about Jesus with everyone she knew."

The Duggar family then took to their official Facebook page to write a touching tribute to Mary as they shared the story of how she first found Christ.

CNN also added that Washington County coroner, Roger Morris, said that the Duggar grandmother experienced a "few health issues" before her death.

According to her family, Mary is survived by two children, 21 grandchildren, and 13 great-grandchildren, and she was married to Jimmy Lee Duggar for 48 years until his death in 2009.
