The reality star is survived by her husband, Dog Duane Chapman, and 4 children. She fought cancer for almost 2 years before succumbing
Reality Star and wife of Duane 'Dog' Chapman, passed away at 51, reports TMZ. She appeared for years on the iconic show, "Dog the Bounty Hunter" along with her husband. She died on Wednesday, 26 June at a Honolulu hospital, after being placed in a medically-induced coma. She fought valiantly against cancer for almost 2 years, before it finally took her life.
Dog Chapman, on his Twitter handle, shared a post saying -
It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.— Duane Dog Chapman (@DogBountyHunter) June 26, 2019
Beth was surrounded by family and friends when it happened. They did not leave her bedside even though they know that there isn't much they can do at this point.
Back in 2017, the 51-year-old announced that she'd been diagnosed with stage II throat cancer. However, she was in remission by December of that year. The cancer returned last November, post which she underwent aggressive chemo. But after fighting for a long time, she said on May 2019 on Mother's Day she had stopped chemo.
Dog and Beth married in 2006. And became internationally famous after "Dog the Bounty Hunter" debuted in 2003. Just days prior to her death, her children posted well-wishing messages on social media. Her daughter, Bonnie Chapman, recently wrote on Instagram and said, "So thankful to call you my mother."
"Nothing in this world will ever keep you away from me. You’ve guided me in my best times and in my worst times, you’ve always been there to except [sic] me for me. I’ll carry out your legacy forever," wrote her daughter, Cecily B Chapman.
Beth had 4 kids namely, Dominic, Cecily, Bonnie Jo, and Garry. The latter two she had with Dog. Beth also has 14 grandchildren.
Condolences and wishes for the family are pouring in on social media -
One of the best parts of watching #DogTheBountyHunter was listening to Beth speak softly trying to connect with their fugitives & help them see a light. Sure the chase is thrilling, but for me, I loved the words of wisdom! RIP @MrsdogC you’re already greatly missed 💔— Kimberly (@ThePrattPack4) June 26, 2019
There will never be another Beth Chapman. Her heart and passion was to make peoples lives straight through tough love. She impacted so many on the TV and on the islands.
