Sunday, May 10, 2020 marked the first Mother’s Day holiday since Beth Chapman’s 2019 passing.

Beth passed away on June 26, 2019 after a battle with throat cancer, which spread to her lungs. The two were together for many years before their 2006 wedding and share two children – Bonnie and Garry. Dog adopted her daughter Cecily and Beth was close with his children from previous relationships as well.

Dog recently became engaged to his girlfriend of a few months, Francie Frane, but he will never lose the love he had for his beloved wife Beth. Two days before Mother’s Day, Dog shared a photo of Beth from Mother’s Day in 2018. She was sitting in a hot tub on a boat and wearing a flower crown.

Mother’s Day 2018 !!! Love you miss you Beth,” the bounty hunter wrote.


On the actual Mother’s Day holiday this year, he shared another photo of Beth, this time with their daughter-in-law Jamie, who is married to Dog’s son Leland.

In the caption, he called himself “the husband of Beth Chapman,” and said, “I miss her so much.”


We know this first Mother’s Day without Beth must have been extremely difficult on the whole family.

Dog’s daughter Lyssa paid tribute to her late stepmother on Instagram, writing, “I miss you, your smile and your crazy ass obsession with this giraffe. Happy Mother’s Day in Heaven.”


Bonnie honored her mom with a sweet photo of her parents with the caption, “I miss you, happy Mother’s Day mama. Hope heaven is treating you well.”


Happy Mother’s Day, Beth…you are clearly missed! Watch some of her and Dog’s best moments in the video below.
