Mary Duggar, the grandmother of the 19 Duggar children of TLC’s “Counting On,” died of an accidental drowning after she fell into a pool at her home in Arkansas on Sunday. She was 78.
Duggar slipped and fell into the pool and drowned, Washington County coroner Roger Morris said. Her daughter Deanna discovered her body and alerted authorities, who pronounced her dead at the scene.
Duggar is survived by two children, 21 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren, the family said. TLC expressed “deepest sympathies” to the Duggar family.
