Well the Writers did say, that they wanted the Apple Family farm to be a Family Dynasty in the show when Writing Apple Jack's Family into the show.
Meaning, when one's parents pass away, their children (if not fellow siblings or Inlaws older than their children) inherit the Family Dynasty.
Which most likely implies both Parents have passed away.
But still, all the Jokes that they are Full time Wonderbolts flying over the Barn in Family Reunion, and stuff like this, really helps keep the topic light.
Because a show like MLP can't address Death in that sense, but the chance a Character could in a Story, helps us get invested because we care about them, and want them to make it.
That's just my thoughts, being a Writer myself.
