This Is How [SPOILER] Died on 'Modern Family's Beloved Halloween Episode

By Anna Quintana

Fans had a lot of theories about who would be killed off Modern Family — and on the beloved ABC series' Halloween episode, viewers finally got their answer. 

Unfortunately, it was DeDe Pritchett — ex-wife of Jay Pritchett and mom to Claire and Mitchell — who died on Modern Family. 

So, how did DeDe die? 

Her death was revealed during the first minute of the episode aptly titled, "Good Grief," — and it was Claire who got the bad news from DeDe's husband Jerry. 

It turns out she had a heart problem she did not want to talk about and despite surviving some crazy incidents during her trip to Greenland, including being swallowed by a whale, she died in her sleep at the hotel.
