Sad news comes from the family of Amber Portwood, as The Sun reports that her grandmother Sharon has passed away.
The Teen Mom OG star's grandma died on Tuesday, June 23 at the age of 75. The Sun cited her obituary, which you can find here, in reporting that Sharon Webb was "everyone's favorite lunch lady" at Anderson Community Schools for 20 years, and attended the Church of Linwood. She is survived by her husband, Paul R. Webb Sr., as well as by siblings, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
According to a source, Amber is "devastated" by this loss, as she and Sharon were "very close." The insider also explained that Sharon "had been very sick."
The mom-of-two has not spoken out on the death of her grandmother, but we hope she's surrounded by friends and family in this difficult time. As her fans know, she's currently in a long-distance relationship with Dimitri Garcia, a Belgian man who was featured on the last season of Teen Mom OG. Additionally, she's still very close with her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy, Gary Shirley, along with his wife Kristina. Gary has been a huge source of support for Amber, even penning a lengthy caption on Instagram back in May as to why he's going to always be there for his ex. "In the end I want to know I did everything I could to help my daughter & James. Supporting their mother HAS to be a part of that. I’m proud of the steps Amber has taken for herself and for her kids. She has come a long way," he wrote.
Our thoughts are with Amber and her loved ones as they mourn the loss of Sharon Webb.
