I bet you are dying to create your obit for free just like this celebrity. Anachdotal history from my personal contact with Rise Steevens:

A real "trooper" as well. In 1965 she performed at Ohio University in Dec.

She and her accompanist drove through a blizzard through narrow winding roads to make it on time. No one would have blamed her if she had cancelled.

She went on without a warm up. The first half was her warm up session, so she was only excellent. The second half of the performance she gave her usual great performance.

Right now, I am watching "Going My Way which has a few scenes in which she performs.

I could say more because my dad was analterboy at St James Episcopal Church in queens (I think) and so he knew some cute oersonal facts about her.

She was genuinely a nice person as well.
