By Bitten and Bound on February 23, 2014
Maria Von Trapp, the last surviving member of the family made world-famous by “The Sound of Music,” has died at the age of 99. Maria Franziska, the last of the seven brothers and sisters from the Austrian family, died in her sleep at her Vermont home. “It was a surprise that she was the one in the family to live the longest because ever since she was a child she suffered from a weak heart,” a family friend told the Austrian Times. . . .
