The Duggar family has been through a lot this past year, having lost Grandma Mary in May in a tragic drowning accident. It happened in the swimming pool in the back of her house, which she shared with her daughter, Deanna. Fans have wondered if any family members would end up living in the home, but that does not appear to be the plan, as it was recently put up for sale.
Grandma Duggar lived down the road from Jim Bob and Michelle’s big house, although not on their property. The close proximity between the houses allowed the family to visit Grandma Duggar often, plus it wasn’t too far for her to pop over to her son’s home.
According to a listing — which was originally found by the Duggar Family News: Life is Not All Pickles and Hairspray Facebook page — the house sits on 1.51 acres and has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a swimming pool.
Fans may not be too surprised that the reality stars have chosen to sell the home, as it is likely holds bittersweet memories for the whole family.
On her previous Instagram stories, cousin Amy Duggar opened up about how hard it was to sift through Grandma Duggar’s belongings. Just last month, Amy wrote about how much she was missing Grandma Duggar — reminiscing on how they would sit on the stairs together at her house and talk.

As many of you have heard, our precious Grandma Duggar (Mary) passed away at home on Sunday afternoon, June 9th, 2019 at the age of 78. . She is greatly loved and will be missed so very much!! She lived a tremendous life as a follower of Christ, a wife, a devoted mother, a loving mother-in-law, and a much-loved grandmother. Proverbs 31:10-31 describes the virtuous woman, indeed she personified these beautiful verses with her life. ???? . We deeply appreciate your prayers for our family and all who loved Mary during this time!
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Mary’s funeral will be highlighted on the upcoming season of Counting On. The TLC cameras were present at the memorial service, recording everything as the family shed tears and expressed their sorrow over Grandma Duggar’s passing. Previews for the upcoming episodes indicate that more details will be revealed about what exactly happened on that fateful day. It appears that Jim Bob will speak out on the moment that he got the shocking phone call from his sister, who broke the heartbreaking news that their mother was gone.
Grandma Duggar’s death was not the only tragedy the family has seen this year. Joy-Anna and her husband, Austin, lost their baby girl due to a miscarriage when she was 20 weeks along. Last year, Josiah and Lauren Duggar experienced a miscarriage as well. All in all, it has clearly been a tough few months for the family.
The new season of Counting On is set to begin on Tuesday, October 15, at 9 p.m. ET.
