They pretty much do everything and anything together.

The whole premise of the show 19 Kids and Counting was based around how close the family was.

So, the news is a complete shock for the family.

According to TMZ, Jim Bob's mother passed away suddenly on Sunday. The cause of death is not known and there is no information as to whether she was sick or suffering beforehand.

The family broke the news on Facebook.

"Yesterday, our precious Grandma Duggar went to be with Lord. What amazing and godly woman-she has left quite an amazing legacy. It’s so sweet to know that not only is she with Jesus, but also she is with our sweet baby, Asa in heaven," captioned the post.

Granddaughter Jill Duggar also shared the sad news with fans through an Instagram post.

"My heart breaks. My grandma died suddenly today! She was an amazing woman of God and such a great example to so many!" Jill said in her Instagram post which showed Mary with her great-grandsons Israel and Samuel.

Just a few weeks ago, Mary met her newest great-grandchild, a baby girl named Ivy who was actually born on Mary's birthday.

Ivy is the daughter of Jessa Duggar and her husband, Ben Seewald. Even though Mary has passed away, she and her great-granddaughter will share this special connection forever.

Joy-Anna Duggar posted her own photo to Instagram, saying, "Miss her soooo much and we cherish each moment we were blessed to spend together!"
