R.I.P.—Mary Wilson

Post by Bruce Bernard Williams »

Mary Wilson, former member of The Supremes, died suddenly at her home in Las Vegas on February 8th of unknown causes.
Also, there are two [2] more recent deaths that weren't mentioned on the Forum and both recorded songs penned by Burt: Bonnie Pointer and Trini Lopez, both passed away in late 2020. My condolences to the families, friends, and many fans of these three [3] talented artists.
Bonnie's ex-husband, Jefferey Bowen, took me and a guy from England on a complete, all-day tour of the Motown Studios in August, 1966.
Also, condolences are sent to Rita Coolidge, one of Mary's closest friends. Rita was a caring friend when she needed one, after that near-fatal jeep wreck several years ago.
