Beth was hospitalized in April and again this past Saturday as she battled throat cancer. She would pass away Wednesday morning after being placed in a medically induced coma.

"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," Dog tweeted. "We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side."

Since Beth's passing, family and friends have offered their condolences both online and in private.

"I'll never forget you, mama. You were such a strong woman, and you taught me to always be strong," her youngest daughter Bonnie Chapman shared. "You were strong for everyone, and you taught me it's okay to let go."
