I just saw this on twitter. She was a lovely woman, inside and out.

Oh dear - no age sad

So sad.
Think it was metastatic breast cancer.
Frightening how it can come back years layer, even though you think you're cured.
Cancer is a horrible thing.

I am exactly the same age / same birthday sad

She was a very beautiful woman, in every way, I'm so sorry to hear about her death.

She fought cancer for so long. I will always remember her a a bubbly cheerful Sandy.

That's really sad news. Happy memories of taking DD1 and her friends to see Grease.

We loved to sing along to the songs and she did some lovely duets with Cliff Richard.

Hi, CrazyH, Judith Durham, of The Seekers, is the other Australian lady who died this week, on Saturday I think.

Grannmarie Mon 08-Aug-22 21:39:40

R.I.P. Olivia. I loved The Banks of the Ohio, sorry I can't do a link.

Oh goodness, another lovely Australian lady. How sad.

CazB Mon 08-Aug-22 21:40:19

Such sad news, I will always think of her as Sandy in Grease. She had a lovely smile and voice.

Poppyred Mon 08-Aug-22 22:17:22

Very sad xx

Kate1949 Mon 08-Aug-22 22:32:08

crazyH The lovely Judith Durham of The Seekers. Apologies. Olivia was born in England I believe.

Kate1949 Mon 08-Aug-22 22:33:41

Sorry Grannmarie. You already explained.

Very sad news. In the early 70s DH was a minicab diver and drove her several times. He adored her and used to collect her fish and chips.
