Ronnie Spector, whose meteoric rise to fame in the 1960's as the lead singer of The Ronettes, died after a valiant Cancer battle. She was 78.
In a statement to USA TODAY, Spector’s family said Spector "lived her life with a twinkle in her eye, a spunky attitude, a wicked sense of humor and a smile on her face."
"She was filled with love and gratitude," the statement read. "Her joyful sound, playful nature and magical presence will live on in all who knew, heard or saw her." Spector was surrounded by family and "in the arms of her husband" Jonathan, when she died in Connecticut.
Born Veronica Bennett, Spector formed the Ronettes in 1957 with her older sister, Estelle, and their cousin, Nedra Talley. She married record producer Phil Spector in 1968, but they separated in 1972. Spector produced the majority of the group’s greatest hits. Spector’s potent voice graced a plethora of hits in the early-to-mid ‘60s, including “Be My Baby,” “Baby, I Love You” and “Walking in the Rain.” A lengthy solo career followed, starting with the single “So Young” in 1964.
Her resurgence occurred in 1986, when she was featured on Eddie Money’s “Take Me Home Tonight” which was on heavy rotation on MTV.
Recently, Spector appeared in the Amy Winehouse documentary, “Amy Winehouse: Back to Black” in 2018; Winehouse had often spoke of the influence The Ronettes had on her own music.
In 2007, Spector was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Ronettes.
Spector's family requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to local women's shelters or to the American Indian College Fund
