(Associated Press) Maria von Trapp, a member of the musical family whose escape from Nazi-occupied Austria was the basis for "The Sound of Music," has died, her brother said Saturday.
Von Trapp, 99, died at her home in Vermont on Tuesday, Johannes von Trapp said.
"She was a lovely woman who was one of the few truly good people," he said. "There wasn't a mean or miserable bone in her body. I think everyone who knew her would agree with that."
