In addition to the industry vet's rep Harlan Boll confirming the sad news, a man named Steve Hughes penned a note about Carr's passing for her website. On the now disabled website, Hughes wrote:
"My name is Steve Hughes, and my Company has been managing Charmian Carr's website for many, many years. Me and my family are so sad to have to post this message and will miss her dearly… We had the gracious opportunity to stay at Charmian Carr's house several times while we worked on different projects for her. And we traveled to New York with her on another occasion. She was such a nice, cheerful person. We always LOVED, The Sound of Music, and still do."
Obviously, Mr. Hughes won't be the only person to miss Charmian as the late artist touched many people's lives, not only actress, but as a writer and interior designer too.
As you may recall, Carr wrote two books, titled Forever Liesl and Letters to Liesl, about her time shooting the film adaptation of Rogers & Hammerstein's hit musical. Oh, and Charmian famously designed homes for A-listers like Michael Jackson and the Sound Of Music's screenwriter Ernest Lehman.
However, before her success in California, Charmian was simply a girl who was born in Chicago in 1942. Although it seems as though the Evening Primrose star was destined to come to Tinseltown as her parents were also artists. When Charmian was only a girl, her mother (who was a vaudeville actress) and father (who was a musician and orchestra leader) relocated their family to the San Fernando Valley.
The Hollywood beauty is survived by her four siblings, her two children, and four grandchildren. Our hearts go out to Carr's loved ones during this sad time!
