Amy revealed, her mother was 86 and she had died just months before celebrating her 67th wedding anniversary.

While Patricia was not keeping well for quite some time, her death had not been something Amy was prepared to hear.

She recalled her parents got a chance to meet the children and the grandchildren.
Amy confessed she wished she had some more time to spend with her mother while adding that she would have loved for the rest of her family to have gotten a chance to spend some more time with her mother. The reality star further admitted that she had been full of "conflicting emotions" ever since she heard the news.
She revealed she had a lot to be thankful for. Right from her engagement to buying a new house, she had a lot to look forward to but one thing she was not expecting was the news about her mom's death. Amy decided to skip pumpkin season to go and meet her family and be there for the memorial services of her mother.
Meanwhile, she thought that prom would be a good distraction and help her stay happy. Amy also broke the news about her mother's death to Matt Roloff. Matt expressed his condolences while adding that Patricia was a nice woman. He understood that Amy had a lot going on and did not force her to be part of pumpkin season.
Zachary Roloff also felt upset about losing his grandmother and was quite sad for his mother as she had lost someone dear to her. Amy knew it was important for her to fly down to her hometown to be with her family and see how her father had been doing.
While she had everything prepared, she decided to stay back and spend time with the family as they celebrated the pumpkin season. She felt happy to be around people she loved while also remembering her mother.
