The last surviving member of The Andrews Sisters - the popular singing trio of the 1940s and 1950s - has died in California at the age of 94.

Patty Andrews's spokesman, Alan Eichler, said she died from natural causes at her Los Angeles home.

Patty was the youngest of the sisters whose hits included Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B.

The Andrews Sisters sold more than 75 million records and entertained World War II troops in Africa and Europe.

2. R.I.P.

And thank you to you and your sisters for some uplifting and iconic songs that have been played for the past 70 years. You were truly an inspiration for the WWII troops.
