The world was rocked yesterday when we found out about the passing of the incredibly talented and kind Olivia Newton-John.
Whether you know her from Grease, Xanadu, Two of a Kind, The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee or something else, she’s found her way into our hearts.
Olivia’s husband, John Easterling, announced her passing on social media:
“Dame Olivia Newton-John passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time. Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer. Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the @onjfoundation.”
I found this really nice tribute posted to YouTube as I was reminiscing. Check it out here:
