The first of two images showed the musician wearing a blue windbreaker and white helmet as she posed on a bike.

The two-wheeler had a basket secured to the handle bars at the front, and she held onto them while smiling. 

Rosmarie’s white hair spilled out of her protective headgear and she teamed her look with a long skirt, tube socks, and sneakers.

The family statement continued, ‘Her kindness, generosity, and colorful spirit were legendary, and she had a positive impact on countless lives.’

The caption ended: ‘We believe the best way to recognize Rosmarie is to demonstrate the same selfless kindness and generosity that she exemplified daily.’

The post was liked by over 1,800 of the Trapp Family Lodge’s 21,000 followers.

Rosmarie was born on February 8, 1929 and was the oldest child of Captain Georg and second wife Maria Augusta.

She grew up in a full household with seven older half-siblings and two younger siblings.

The blended family were refugees ahead of World War II, moving to the U.S. and eventually inspiring the 1959 Broadway musical The Sound of Music.

It was adapted into a movie in 1965 that starred Julie Andrews and earned five 1966 Academy Awards.
