Maria von Trapp, 99, dies in Vermont

Published: 02.23.14, 07:43 / Israel News

Maria von Trapp, the last surviving member and second-eldest daughter of the musical family whose escape from Nazi-occupied Austria was the basis for "The Sound of Music," has died. She was 99.


Von Trapp died at her home in Vermont on Tuesday, according to her brother Johannes von Trapp. "She was a lovely woman who was one of the few truly good people," he said. "There wasn't a mean or miserable bone in her body. I think everyone who knew her would agree with that." (AP)
