Patty Andrews, the last surviving member of the World War II-era popular singing siblings, the Andrews Sisters, died today of natural causes at home in suburban Northridge, California. She was 94.

It’s said she had the chops to deliver sentimental ballads like “I’ll Be with You in Apple Blossom Time” that caused hardened GIs far from home to weep openly.
