The most famous Austrian family has lost one of it’s siblings. Rosmarie Trapp — the eldest child of famed Captain Georg Johannes von Trapp and Maria Augusta (Kutschera) von Trapp, who inspired “The Sound of Music” — has died at age 93.
The news broke on the Von Trapp’s instagram saying “Stowe lost one its kindest, most gentle souls yesterday. Rosmarie Trapp passed away peacefully on Friday evening at the age of 93; she was in the presence of loved ones all day long. Her kindness, generosity, and colorful spirit were legendary, and she had a positive impact on countless lives. Please respect our family’s privacy as we take time to process this loss, and prepare to celebrate the life of an amazing woman. We believe the best way to recognize Rosmarie is to demonstrate the same selfless kindness and generosity that she exemplified daily.
Johannes, Lynne, Kristina, and Sam von Trapp”
