We are so unhappy at this loss. Should we dig it up and replace with something else? Is the cause just age and life span? Reply appreciated.

These have a lifespan of, roughly, 250 years. There is likely something wrong with the soil. It would be very hard to know without photos, and detailed information on their care, though.

If you would like a detailed description of your problem, it will be best to get your soil sampled.
