Beth Chapman’s daughter, Bonnie Chapman, paid tribute to her famous late mom, Beth Chapman during the recently-concluded Mother’s Day celebration.
Even though it would be her children’s first Mother’s Day without her, Beth Chapman children chose to honor her in their own special way.

Bonnie’s Mother's Day post seemed reminiscent of the speech she gave during the two-hour memorial service for Beth in July 2019.
With nearly 20,000 likes and thousands of comments, fans showed that they were able to relate with Bonnie and the hurt that comes with losing a mother. While some stated that they understood how she felt, others wrote out kind words to help the 21-year-old during this period
She also took a moment to reply to social media trolls who previously badmouthed her mom. In December 2019, while showing her appreciation to those who celebrated her 21st birthday with her, Bonnie shared a sweet throwback picture that showed Beth cradling her as a baby.
Beth’s youngest child used the opportunity to admit how rough it was that her mother wasn’t there to celebrate with them during the festive season. She then asked her fans and followers to excuse her absence from social media as she dealt with the difficult time the best way she could.
“No one will ever be a bounty hunter in heels like she was. No one will be as great of a mom as she was.”
Beth was first diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in September 2017, and even though she declared that she was cancer-free two months later, the disease returned in 2018.
In November of that same year, doctors discovered that the cancer had spread to her lungs after she underwent emergency surgery. Before her death in June 2019, Beth Chapman was the wife of Duane “Dog” Chapman, and she starred alongside her man on the A&E show, “Dog the Bounty Hunter.”
