A cause of death was not immediately revealed. https://www.npr.org/2023/01/01/1146506030/anita-pointer-pointer-sisters-has-died She passed away yesterday, December 31, 2022, at the age of 74. Another celebrity also just passed, Barbara Walters. She died on December 30, 2022 at the age of 93. And remember last year at this time, Betty White died too, December 31, 2021 at the age of 99. May they all RIP. I loved the music of the Pointer Sisters! I just recently read that they were originally from Arkansas and when they were young, their family moved to California. I also did not realize that two other of the Pointer sisters had also passed away. June Pointer died due to cancer in 2003 at the age of 52. And Bonnie Pointer died recently in 2020 at the age of 69. So therefore, that leaves the one with the heavy vocals, Ruth Pointer that is still living and also some beloved brothers are still living. Anita Pointer is said to be one of the main ones to organize the group. She had only one daughter, Jada, but she passed away before her mother. Jada died of cancer in 2003 at the age of 37. I remember that Carol Burnette obviously like them as she featured them at times on her variety show. RIP BONNIE, RIP ANITA *At one point, Bonnie Pointer actually left the group and went solo for a while. And when she did, the other Pointer Sister's did not know if they would make it. However, they continued to make music a few years later. Anita once said that her sister Bonnie is claimed to have been a major factor to their success. Anita, Ruth, Bonnie and June Pointer, born the daughters of a minister, grew up singing in their father's church in Oakland, California. https://www.npr.org/2023/01/01/1146506030/anita-pointer-pointer-sisters-has-died June Pointer died of cancer at the age of 52 in 2006.
