A rep for TLC confirms that the family -- who is featured on the reality hit 19 Kids and Counting -- also grieved Jubilee's death in private service Sunday evening.

"On behalf of the whole Duggar Family we would like to thank everyone for their prayers, emails and outpouring of love," Jim Bob and Michelle wrote on their Web site.
