‘LPBW’: Amy Roloff Just Explained How ‘Life Moves On’ Despite Recent Tragedies

It’s been a year of wild ups and downs for Amy Roloff from Little People, Big World. While the show is currently filming for a new season, she’s giving her social media followers plenty of updates on what’s going on in her life, including all the good and bad. While Amy’s still dealing with certain aspects of her divorce from Matt Roloff that took place years ago, she’s excited to announce that she’s engaged to her partner of three years, Chris Marek. Unfortunately, shortly after the engagement news, she also notified her followers that her mother passed away.

Now that Amy’s taken some time to reflect on her mom’s passing, she also just noted how she’s planning on moving forward from the recent events. Here’s what she just wrote on Instagram.

The last two weeks have been a roller coaster ride. Happy and sad. Chris asked me to marry him and I couldn’t be happier – I said Yes. ❤️ and so excited and looking forward to continuing our journey together. So sad because A few days later my father told me mom was in the hospital and a day later my sister told me mom had passed away. She died on the 24th. My heart broke, I cried and sadness came upon me. I didn’t know what emotions to feel. Happy one moment sad the next. The woman who raised and taught me so much and loved me along w/ my dad passed away. She isn’t here anymore. I won’t be able to see and talk to her. And yet she’s not in pain and hurting anymore either. She lived a good life with my Dad. She didn’t have to go in a home but was able to stay in her home until she died. She would have been 87 years old and my parents would have been married 67 years on the 3rd. I’ll miss her a lot. I’ll miss not seeing her when I go back home – her strong feisty ways along with her gentle soft loving heart. I’m thankful for so much because of my Mom. I’m thankful she believed and had faith and know she’s with Jesus now. I’m thankful I got to talk to her on Sunday before she went to the hospital and then passed away. I know she’ll never stop loving me and is proud of me, I’m thankful all my kids got to go to Michigan last summer and see her and my dad and she got to meet her great grand kids. She was happy because of that. ❤️ I’m sad because I won’t be able to see and talk to her anymore and yet happy because she’s home with the Lord. I pray for my Dad. He’s by himself and He misses her so much. He’ll be 91 soon and he lost his friend, his wife and the person he’s known for over 70 years and been married to for 67 years ❤️ Even in my mom’s passing she is lovingly teaching and reminding me- life is but a moment. Be and do your best today and if tomorrow comes do it again. Mom, I love you ❤️ always. 2 Timothy 4:7-8

Amy’s been keeping her followers up to date concerning her mother’s health for a few months now. Awhile back, she alerted her Instagram followers that she was heading out to Michigan to be with her mom and dad after she heard of her mother’s ailing health. And right after she announced her engagement to Marek in late September, Amy was then hit with the news of her mom’s passing.

“She died on the 24th. My heart broke, I cried and sadness came upon me. I didn’t know what emotions to feel. Happy one moment sad the next. The woman who raised and taught me so much and loved me along w/ my dad passed away,” Amy captioned this Instagram post of her with her family.

Amy’s since reflected on her mother’s life in a few other posts, too. As she captioned this one after her mom’s memorial, “Her life wasn’t perfect but she gave her all to my Dad, myself and my siblings because she loved her family.”

Amy also briefly touched on drama that may be occurring on Roloff Farms

While Amy’s posts more recently are all about her mother, we can’t forget that she’s also briefly brushed over some drama on Roloff Farms. Pumpkin season on the iconic family farm just ended, and Amy has always played a major role in making sure everything goes according to plan for the big event. But this year, Amy mentioned several times on Instagram that she wouldn’t be helping out nearly as much with it this year. And when fans questioned why, Amy alluded that she and Matt still aren’t on good terms.

“Can you guys tell me why she’s not part of the pumpkin season?” one follower asked on this Instagram post. To that, Amy answered herself. She wrote, “just a lot going on and changes and choosing not to be involved in a confrontation,” followed by, “It’s changed for me now and because I choose not to be a part of a confrontation that could have impacted others from an ultimatum that was said to me if followed through.”

As we know, Amy and Matt have seemingly been at odds since their divorce, so we’re guessing the “confrontation” has to do with that.

She just explained how she’s moving forward regardless

Went to my Mon’s gravesite today. To feel her presence, talk w/ her, pray and be thankful for what her life gave to me. Can hardly believe that it’s been one month since my Mom’s passing and one week since her memorial. Still feels like just yesterday. Sometimes you just don’t feel or want to move on but you must. That is one of several reasons I wanted to stay a little longer and be here to hang out with my Dad when the memorial service was over, when a lot of my family needed to get back to their home and it’s just you. Just maybe I may help him move on a little easier and realize a new normal. It’s hard, very hard and sometimes sad that she’s not here anymore, except in our hearts and memories. I’m glad I could be here with him. For my Dad he’s missing the person that was his friend, love, wife and mother for collectively over 70 years. What a legacy. Love my family and I rejoice because of her faith in the Lord, she’s with him now and not in pain anymore. Rest In Peace I love you Mom. ❤️As the rain drizzles down, I stand in the quiet among the trees and listen to remember her so I don’t forget. Now my mind begins to shift slightly as I think about coming home to my kids, Chris, my family. I have a new grand child coming soon and another a month and half later, projects, work, plans to create more memories. Life moves on whether we’re ready or not. I have my mom in my heart, faith and love. Coming to her gravesite reminds me that life moves on and I’m going to keep doing my best. ❤️. Love you Mom.

Despite whatever’s going on on the family farm and her mother’s passing, Amy knows she must truck on — and she wrote about it on Instagram. She posted a photo of her near her mom’s gravesite and wrote, “Can hardly believe that it’s been one month since my Mom’s passing and one week since her memorial. Still feels like just yesterday. Sometimes you just don’t feel or want to move on but you must.”

Amy then explained how difficult everything’s been for her dad, too. But she’s doing everything she can to look toward a brighter future. “Now my mind begins to shift slightly as I think about coming home to my kids, Chris, my family. I have a new grand child coming soon and another a month and half later, projects, work, plans to create more memories,” Amy continued. “Life moves on whether we’re ready or not. … Coming to her gravesite reminds me that life moves on and I’m going to keep doing my best.”

We’re excited to see what Amy’s future holds — and we can’t wait to hear more details about future LPBW episodes, her engagement, and her upcoming grandchildren!
