Jill Duggar Gets Emotional Over the Death of Derick Dillard's Grandmother

With a baby on the way, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have a lot to look forward to. But their happiness was brought to a halt this week with news that Derick’s grandmother has passed away.


The couple recently paid a visit to “Grandma Vergie,” and shared photos from the trip on their respective Instagram pages, along with captions reminiscent of their time together.

“Grandma Vergie, you will be greatly missed!” the 19 Kids and Counting star wrote. “Derick and I are so grateful we were able to speak with her recently before she passed away today.”


Meanwhile, Derick shared a photo alongside his grandmother and wife, with an emotional message. “So grateful that Jill and I got to speak with my grandmother this week before she passed away earlier today,” he wrote. “You will be greatly missed Grandma Vergie, but we’re looking forward to seeing you in Heaven before too long!”

Jill and Derick are expecting a son this Spring.
