With heavy hearts, we received a phone call today that David’s youngest sister, Rebecca went home to heaven today, October 2, at around 8:30am. The twenty-two years of life that God gave us with her seem so short, but in light of eternity all of our lives are short. The most important thing is a relationship with Jesus Christ that Rebecca evidenced by the fruit of her life. She is in heaven today, not because she was a good person, but because she trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal savior. The instant her car was struck, she passed from earth to heaven and is in the presence of the Lord. For more information and pictures, see the link in Bio
The deceased worked at UPS until her death, and the website noted that Rebecca's colleagues saw her as someone with an excellent work ethic, a can-do attitude, and she exuded kindness to those around her.
Rebecca is one more person in the list of people, Anna, has lost this year. In June, the "Counting On," star lost her husband, Joshua Duggar's, grandmother. That same month, she honored the late Duggar matriarch who died after an accidental drowning in an Instagram post.
After revealing that the sixth baby she is expecting, with her husband is a girl, Anna took a trip down memory lane, informing her fans that grandma Duggar introduced her to using gender-reveal cakes.

IT’S A... 🥁 This is the 6th gender reveal for our little family and it always so exciting! Each child God has given us is unique and special — we all look forward to the arrival of our daughter / sister this fall! 🎀🍁🍂 This morning Jessa sent over an article which mentioned our first gender reveal with Mackynzie on the Today Show as something that helped popularize gender reveal cakes 10 years ago. 🍰 (while it’s hard to believe it’s been that long, it also reminded us to get this video posted! 🙈) A little behind the scenes story: When I was expecting Kynzie, Grandma Duggar excitedly told me of a “new trend” that featured baking a gender reveal cake. Grandma asked if she and Amy could bake one for us?!?! Josh and I loved the idea and that was our plan...until our producers heard about the idea and it grew quite a bit! Buddy the Cake Boss ended up baking the first gender reveal cake for us! We were thrilled to cut into our pink cake with Meredith Vieira in NYC. All that to say, Grandma was the one who sparked this special tradition for our family and it sounds like a lot of other families have enjoyed the idea over the years as well! With Grandma’s passing last week, this 6th gender reveal is a reminder of her love — I’m so glad we were able to share the news of our third little girl with Great-Grandma before she went to be with Jesus! #littleduggars #family #itsagirl #baby #babygirl #genderreveal #pink #soexcited #soexcitedrightnow #love #littlescientist
The reality star and her family have had a lot of sad news this year, but with a baby on the way, they'll have a lot to celebrate soon.
