The new reports keep saying last surviving member. So all of the children are now dead too?

Confusion reigns, as always, whenever I post to this group.
First, an LT member kindly pointed out to me privately that the Maria von Trapp who just passed away is not the one who wrote the book I cited.
Second, some of the obituaries quoted a brother, so she cannot be the last surviving von Trapp child, but (as I read it) was the last of the siblings who sang professionally.
Varielle- should I just delete all of this later today (posts 11 and 13)?
Or shall I leave them in place as an example to others of how *not* to post?

Oh, leave it. We need some conversation here. From the news reports I thought this was the Maria of the movie. The news hasn't been very clear.
