Sound Of Music's Real Life Daughter & Last Living Family Member Passes Away At 99

maria von trapp passes away

What a long and amazing life.

We're sad to report that Maria von Trapp, the last surviving member of the famous Sound of Music von Trapp family, has passed away at 99 years old.

The second eldest daughter of Baron Georg von Trapp passed away last week while in her sleep at her home in Vermont.

The young lady and her family became famous when they escaped the Nazis in the 1930s and made their way stateside. That story then inspired what we all now know as The Sound of Music.

Maria's long life is especially surprising and beautiful considering family friend Marianne Dorfer revealed she "suffered from a weak heart."

She has one adopted son and three half-siblings who are still alive and well.

Our thoughts are with them during this sad time.

    Didn't know she was that old but makes sense since they were escaping the war.
    Loved the first Sound of Music movie, think it had Julie Andrews in it?
