Singer Joy Beverley, of The Beverley Sisters, dies at 91


Singer Joy Beverley, one of the three members of 1950s group The Beverley Sisters, has died.

A family friend confirmed Beverley, 91, died on Monday after she reportedly suffered a stroke last week.

Her son, Vince, 67, told the Express & Star newspapers: "We all thought the world of her and we are devastated she is gone. We are a very close-knit family."

"She was a very bubbly, but private, character."

"We are all going to miss her terribly, she has been a part of our lives for so long now it really is going to be a big loss for all of us."
