LOS ANGELES (AP) — Patty Andrews, the last surviving member of the singing
Andrews Sisters trio whose hits such as the rollicking "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
of Company B" and the poignant "I Can Dream, Can’t I?" captured the home-front
spirit of World War II, died Wednesday of natural causes at her home in a suburb
of Los Angeles.
