Singer Jo Stafford, Age 90

Jo Stafford has passed away at the age of 90.

Stafford's work included singing with the Pied Pipers, who backed up Frank Sinatra in the '40s.

More on her interesting career can be read at London's Daily Telegraph.

Saturday Update: Sweetness and Greatness from Power Line; the Bob Thomas obituary in the Long Beach Press-Telegram mentions her being a local girl who graduated from Poly High School.

Monday Update: Here's a nice remembrance from Jacqueline at Another Old Movie Blog.

So sorry to hear this. One of my very favorites. God bless her. She has for many years accompanied me on long car trips. Nothing like a stretch of open road and a stack of Jo Stafford cd's.

What a lovely way to think of her, Jacqueline!

It's wonderful that the artistry of people like Ms. Stafford will live on into the future.

Best wishes,
Laura
