Yeah in Las Vegas and January 25th, 78 years old, but she was terrific. She wrote her hits as well. This was the first thing she charted with on money and then of course after that make me yours was just a smash and she wrote that as well, so she was she was quite the quite the writer and it was a somewhat brief career though. She wound up retiring from singing and went to Las Vegas became a teacher became a Jehovah's Witness and lived there a fairly quietly unfortunately. She suffered from a degenerative spinal condition for the last decade of her life. But her first charter, yeah. Don't wait too long. 1965 on money got to number 27 on the R&B charts.
