If you know one thing about the Duggars, it's that they really value family above most everything else. For such a large clan, they are incredibly close-knit and seem to really enjoy each other's company. We know Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar as the heads of the family, but according to the Duggars themselves, Mary Duggar was the glue that held them all together. Mary, Jim Bob's mother, tragically passed away this summer after accidentally drowning in her pool.
Her death came as a shock to the family and fans of the show, and many members of the family expressed their sadness in public posts on social media. It takes some time to move past the loss of a beloved family member, but it sounds like the Duggar family is wasting no time in wrapping up loose ends and managing her affairs after her death. Just three months after Mary Duggar drowned in her own pool, the house where she lived (and died) has been listed for sale.
The nearly 4,000 square foot home sits on 1.51 acres in Springdale, Arkansas. Duggar fans may recognize much of the interior and backyard, as it was frequently the site of family gatherings. The home features four bedrooms, three full baths, and a half bath, and also boasts a pool and a metal shop, office, and space that was used for homeschooling.
It's currently listed for $489,000 and there was an open house scheduled for this past weekend. We imagine there will be plenty of lookie-loos, but at that price, plenty of legitimately interested buyers as well.

In honor of such a wonderful and godly lady! I remember Grandma Duggar caring so tenderly for Grandpa Duggar, spoon feeding him, doting on him, and talking to him so lovingly. I remember thinking what a wonderful picture of selfless love! I loved her smile, her laughter, her enthusiasm for ministry, her encouraging words. She always made me feel so loved! She will be greatly missed! She has made an impact on us that will not be forgotten! Prayers for her family and friends 🙏. Her absence cannot be filled, but her memory will live forever. 😢❤️ #MaryDuggar
Mary Duggar, mother to Jim Bob and Deanna Duggar, was 78 when she died on June 9. She was found unconscious by her daughter Deanna, who called 911. She was pronounced dead after emergency personnel responded to the call. Initial reports suggested she drowned after slipping and falling in the pool. Those reports were confirmed when the coroner's office confirmed accidental drowning as the cause of death.
Mary had just two children of her own, but had 21 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. She appeared on 19 Kids & Counting and Counting On many times over the years.
