Dorothy McGuire Williamson (far right in the photo) of the pioneering pop trio the McGuire Sisters died last Friday at the age of 84. The group consisted of Dorothy and her two sisters Christine and Phyllis. They hit the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 five times including the #1 smash hits "Sincerely" and "Sugartime." A trademark of the trio was wearing matching outfits and hairstyles. The sisters performed and toured together until 1968. They then reunited a number of times with their last live performances taking place in the mid-2000s. Christine, age 86, and Phyllis, age 81, both live in Las Vegas, Nevada. The McGuire Sisters got their first big break when they replaced the Chordettes in 1953 on the Arthur Godfrey and His Friends TV show.
