Von Trapp daughter dies in Baltimore


A longtime friend says Agathe von Trapp, whose family’s story became the basis for “The Sound of Music,” has died. She was 97.

Mary Louise Kane said Wednesday that von Trapp died Tuesday at a hospice in the Baltimore suburb of Towson after suffering congestive heart failure in November.

Von Trapp was the oldest daughter of Capt. Georg  Ritter von Trapp, a U-boat commander whose seven children by his first wife were the basis for the singing family in the 1965 film.

Kane lived with Agathe von Trapp for five decades and ran a kindergarten with her at the Sacred Heart Catholic parish in Glyndon.
