(AP) Dorothy McGuire of the popular 1950s musical trio the McGuire Sisters has died at age 84.


Daughter-in-law Karen Williamson says McGuire died of natural causes at her son's Phoenix-area home on Friday.


McGuire teamed up with her sisters Phyllis and Christine to earn six gold records for hits like "Sincerely" and "Sugartime."


The sisters began singing together at their mother's Ohio church and then performed at weddings and church revivals. They got their big break on Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts show in 1952 where they continued to perform for seven years.


They stopped touring in the late 1960s but reunited in the 1980s and last performed together in the mid-2000s.


She's survived by her two sisters, her husband of 53 years, Lowell Williamson, two sons and two step-children.
