Sept 9 (Reuters) - U.S. singer Dorothy McGuire, who with her
two sisters made dozens of hit records in the 1950s and 1960s,
has died in Arizona, her son said on Sunday.

McGuire, 84, died on Friday at her home in Paradise Valley,
Arizona, her son Rex Williamson told Reuters. She had suffered
for some time from Parkinson's disease, he said.

Dorothy McGuire was the middle sister of The McGuire Sisters
- Christine, Phyllis and Dorothy - who had hits with "Goodnite,
Sweetheart, Goodnite", "Sincerely" and "Sugartime" and were
often compared to their 1940s predecessors, The Andrews Sisters.

They began their careers as children, singing in their
Miamisburg, Ohio, church and later at hospitals and military
bases before singing a record deal in 1952.

Sad to lose another great artist. Her sisters are still with us.

My surprise is that she was so young. Young being relative.

Rest in Peace, Dorothy.
