Member of Real-Life 'Sound of Music' Family Died


Agathe von Trapp, whose family inspired that musical film, passed away on December 28 at 97.

A woman whose family inspired classic movie musical "The Sound of Music" has died. Agathe von Trapp passed away on Tuesday, December 28 at a hospice in Towson, Maryland after suffering congestive heart failure last month. She was 97.

Von Trapp was the oldest daughter of Austrian naval officer Captain Georg Ritter von Trapp, whose seven children were the basis for the singing family in Robert Wise's 1965 movie, starring Julie Andrews. The musical centered around a woman who leaves an Austrian convent to become a governess to the children of a stern naval officer widower.

The real-life von Trapp daughter ran a kindergarten at the Sacred Heart Catholic parish in Glyndon, Maryland prior to her death.
