King Sisters who sang their way out of Utah in the 1930's, cut a swath through big-band America in the 1940's and made a surprise splash on television in the 1960's. The King sisters [Yvonne King, Marilyn King, Alyce King and Donna King] and their intricate four-part harmony were so far ahead of their time that they prefigured the Hi-Lo's and the Four Freshmen of the 1950's. The King sisters repertory included such numbers as Memories of You, Jersey Bounce, Take the "A" Train, The Hut-Sut Song, Milkman, Keep those Bottles Quiet and were a special favorite of the big-band and jazz musicians of the day.

She was 83 and had been married for 60 years to the guitar-playing band leader Alvino Rey.
