That's sad news, one of my all time favourite singers, and this is one of my all time favourite records...

A thousand likes for this song, I remember the first time I heard it, me aged 11. RIP Doris

I read that she wanted no funeral, memorial service or marked grave.

Curious.

Makes her sound somewhat dark/deep compared to the image she had with some.

I don't have an explanation for why she would specify that.

Just curious as i am sure you will agree it is somewhat unusual.

Someone who was perhaps somewhat alienated/ cared not for folks' regard?

Actually no I completely disagree, could it not be the wish of a humble person who didn't believe that she was anything special (although I believe she was) & didn't want a place erected that could become a shrine?

COMPLETELY disagree seems a tad strong since I don't think either of us knew her.

I suppose the truth will go to her (unmarked) grave.

RIP - don't think I ever saw a film of hers the whole way through but she was an interesting actress for sure.

Nothing curious about that, those are my instructions should I predecease Mrs SJ.
And mine and Mrs D's.
