Beth Chapman Has Passed Away
Beth Chapman has passed away, as confirmed by husband Duane on Twitter.
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.

The reality TV star was placed in a medically-induced coma, after being treated for cancer over the past few years.
Her daughter, Bonnie posted an update to her fans on her Instagram story the day after the news of her coma was announced, with an image of some hospital equipment.
She said: "There's not much of an update I can give, I can say she's getting good care.
"I know you guys wanted more, but y'know it's a coma, much much [sic] can be updated."
Chapman is best-known for appearing alongside her husband on the TV series Dog the Bounty Hunter.

The 51-year-old has been battling cancer for several years and was taken in to the ICU at the Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Saturday.
In a statement issued by the family, husband Duane said that they 'humbly ask everyone to please pray for Beth' and sent 'sincere thanks to everyone for their prayers throughout Beth's battle with cancer', according to Hawaii News Now.
Beth was first diagnosed with throat cancer in September 2017 and later that year she was given the all clear. However, it later came back and spread to her lungs.
Beth was taken to hospital in April after experiencing 'serious breathing issues' and fluid on the lungs.
After Beth first received her cancer diagnosis, she and her husband made a TV programme called Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives, in which Beth underwent a 13-hour operation to remove a Stage 2 tumour. Her cancer was confirmed as 'incurable' at the end of last year.
Beth remained strong and defiant throughout her illness; just last week she shared a picture of herself on Instagram with the hashtag, #CancerWillNotBeatMe.
Our thoughts are with Beth's family and friends.
