The last member of the Trapp Family Singers, the group whose story inspired the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical ‘The Sound of Music’, has died at the age of 99 in Vermont (USA). She was the last of the surviving members of the seven children of Georg von Trapp and his first wife. The three children he had later with Maria Augusta Kutschera, the initiator of the choir, are still in life.
