"My grandma died suddenly today", the fourth child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 children says in a post. An official statement from the family soon followed.

On Tuesday, Jessa shared a touching tribute to Mary, who shares a birthday with her new baby daughter, Ivy Jane. Mary Lester Duggar grew...

'Grandma Duggar has had two strokes over the previous year and some other medical issues and it's our understanding that Grandma Duggar had slipped and fallen and passed by the time her daughter found her in the pool, ' a rep for the family said. PEOPLE was able to verify that the Duggar matriarch slipped and fell into the pool according to Washington County Coroner Roger W. Morris.

"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 sin".

The statement ends with a Bible verse that means a lot to Mary. Proverbs 31:10-31 describes the virtuous woman, indeed she personified these attractive verses with her life.

TLC expressed "deepest sympathies" to the Duggar family.

It's a thankless job, and one that comes with all kinds of expectations and standards and responsibilities to the child or children.

The post also spoke about Mary's devout Christian faith.

Mary Duggar was also a successful real estate broker who owned Good Neighbor Realty and was noted in Northwest Arkansas for being the broker who put together the property sale for the John Q. Hammons Holiday Inn & Convention Center in Springdale. Each one of us was made to feel valued and loved by Grandma.

"She is survived by her daughter Deanna and her son Jim Bob, 21 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, with several more great-grandchildren on the way!" There are also several more grandchildren on the way who, unfortunately, will not have the chance of meeting their wonderful grandmother.

We wish the utmost peace for the Duggar family during this time of mourning.

She was featured on both "Counting On" and TLC's predecessor reality series, "17 Kids and Counting". She believed in our gifts and abilities more than we did at times, and she spurred us on to do our best and to give God the glory for all our talents and achievements.
