Rosmarie Trapp, whose Austrian family, the von Trapps, was immortalized in the popular musical “The Sound of Music,” has passed away. She died on May 13 at the age of 93 in a nursing home in Morrisville, Vermont, according to Trapp Family Lodge.
“Our thoughts are with the friends and family of Rosmarie von Trapp – the real-life eldest daughter of Georg and Maria von Trapp,” the official Sound of Music page says. She was born in Salzburg in 1929, moved to America with her family in 1938, and performed with the Trapp Family Singers as an original member.”
She was born on February 8, 1929, in the Salzburg suburb of Aigen. Her family began singing in public in Europe in the 1930s, and the family presented its first New York concert, at Town Hall, in December 1938, and moved to the United States soon after.

“Rosmarie Trapp, the daughter of Austrian navy Capt. George von Trapp and Maria von Trapp, the famed von Trapps on whom the musical The Sound of Music was based, recently died in Morrisville, Vermont,” writes the Massachusetts Historical Society.
She was Georg Von Trapp’s daughter, and she died recently. Trapp’s brother, Johannes von Trapp, is the only immediate survivor of the original Trapp family of singers.
