Beth Chapman passed away on Wednesday at the age of 51 following a lengthy battle with throat cancer. 

News of her death was shared by her husband Duane Dog Chapman, who launched to fame alongside his wife on the popular reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter.

‘It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain,’ wrote Chapman. 

‘Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.’ 

In addition to her husband, Beth is survived by her four children and 14 grandchildren.

He posted a bedside tribute on Monday night to his wife, tweeted a touching photo of Beth’s right hand with a rhinestone manicure.

‘You all know how she is about HER NAILS !!’ Duane wrote, who rang in his 13th wedding anniversary with Beth this May. 

The reality star – who has struggled with throat cancer for years – was reportedly in a lot of pain and required oxygen last week.

He pleaded with his fans on Twitter late Saturday night to ‘please say your prayers for Beth right now.’  

In a statement, Duane and his family ‘humbly ask everyone to please pray for Beth.’

Beth underwent successful surgery for throat cancer in 2017.

However, the cancer returned last year and doctors removed a tumor from her throat after an emergency surgery in November. 

At the time, their family attorney Andrew Brettler said that while the family was staying strong, the surgery was ‘serious.’ 

‘But she has excellent doctors who are evaluating her treatment options,’ he assured their friends and fans.

She was hospitalized in April due to fluid accumulation in her longs and underwent an operation in the same month to relieve pressure. 

Dog previously admitted he would ‘do anything’ if it meant his wife would be well again. 

‘I’m a sinner. I pray a lot,’ he said. ‘I have done double that. I constantly ask God to heal my honey and make sure He takes care of it. I’ve been telling Him that I’m going to try and quit smoking and cursing. I’m a dealmaker, and I’ll do anything.’ 

The Chapmans rose the ranks of reality television with their hit show based around the family bail bond business in downtown Honolulu.

Viewers caught a small glimpse at the intricate world of bounty hunting, with Dog at the helm as the family sought out and arrested people who broke terms of their bail agreements. 

The A&E network first picked up the show in August 2004 and canceled the series after eight seasons in May 2012.

The power couple starred in a spin-off series, Dog and Beth: On the Hunt in August 2015, and a two-hour special called Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives just recently in November.
