The Sound of Music Inspiration Rosmarie Trapp Passed Away
Great woman, the final surviving girl of Georg and Maria Von Trapp, whose family inspired The Sound of Music, Rosmarie Trapp passed away at her Vermont home at the age of 93.
She took her last breath and left just one of the couple’s children still living.
The family of Rosmarie, who had no children and settled the Von in her name after becoming a US citizen in 1950, posted the news of the musician’s death on Instagram on Sunday (May 15, 2022), stating the first child born to Georg and Maria, lost her life peacefully on Friday evening at the age of 93′, saying ‘she was in the company of loved ones all day long.’
The statement added, ‘Her kindness, generosity, and colorful spirit were legendary, and she had a positive impact on countless lives and published two photos of Rosmarie, including one of the singers riding a bicycle and wearing a bright blue anorak.”
The Sound of Music, released in 1965, remains one of the world’s best-loved films, telling the story of how Captain Georg Von Trapp, his ex-nun wife Maria, and his seven children – born to his late wife Agathe – sing their way out of bankruptcy and escape Nazi-occupied Austria to start a new life in America.
The family’s love of music has passed down through the generations; four of the Captain and Maria’s great-grandchildren – Sofi, Melanie, Amanda, and August, now all in their twenties, have revived the family’s musical heritage and are singing together.
The news came out just days after Andrew Woolfolk’s cause of death was released. He passed away, announced officially on April 26, 2022, at the age of 71, due to a long-term illness.

Rosmarie Trapp Passed Away But She Still Alive In Minds
Rosmarie Trapp passed away but she is alive in her loved ones’ minds and hearts.
Our team does not confirm any rumors about his death, but you can be sure that we are trying our best to find related information about the tragedy and provide the latest updates as soon as possible; but, do not forget that family privacy should be respected.
Trapp was born on February 8th, 1929, just outside Salzburg in Austria. During her lifetime, Rosmarie, who became part of the Trapp Family Singers, admitted that she had a strained relationship with her ‘difficult’ and ‘bossy’ mother Maria, particularly after the death of her father Georg in 1947.
Saying she often felt forced to perform on stage, the late musician told the Sunday People six years ago: ‘I was not happy on stage. I was made to do it. We never went running in a field and singing songs like that. We had a hard life. It was a struggle.’
Nearly 60 years after the film’s release, there is now only one of Georg and Maria’s children still living, 83-year-old Johannes, the couple’s last-born child.

Many of the couple’s children have suggested that the film wasn’t entirely based on fact; while the Von Trapp family did flee their home in Nazi-occupied Austria in 1938, before performing together around the US, Hollywood clearly embellished the Oscar-winning film, which saw Christopher Plummer and Julie Andrews in the leading roles. The couple’s oldest son, Rupert, for example, was portrayed as Liesl, the film’s a nearly 17-year-old teenage girl.
After arriving in the US, Georg and Maria bought the Trapp Family Lodge in 1950 – with the family becoming US citizens soon after.
