On Sunday, January 29th, Louise Harrison Caldwell, George Harrison’s sister, passed away peacefully in her assisted living facility in Sarasota, Florida. She was 91 years of age.
No information regarding the cause of death is disclosed. The authorities might reveal the details of the funeral rites later. Everyone, including friends and relatives, is missing him and is paying tribute to her and expressing their condolences on social media.
For most of the last five decades, Louise Harrison lived in the Midwest, particularly in Illinois and Missouri. Nothing unusual occurred at that period to make her life stand out. Left, various employment, relocations to big cities and tiny communities, births, deaths, and happy and sad times. However, there was and always will be that one thing that sets her apart from the norm—her blood connection to a man renowned worldwide, a sibling whose reputation goes beyond mere celebrity.
She spent most of her life in Illinois after marrying an American airman. In the fall of 1963, her brother George visited her and her husband in Benton, Illinois. The Beatles became quite popular in England after releasing “She Loves You.” George even joined the local band The Four Vests on stage for a few songs during their performance at the Eldorado American Legion.
Before George’s visit in 1963, Louise claimed she attempted to get The Beatles’ song on the radio. Additionally, she might have been the brains behind one of The Beatles’ most notable performances.
Louise responded, “Well, I didn’t travel with them too much,” when asked if she had travelled with The Beatles. I spent some time travelling with them, but George visited me in Illinois, where I had moved in 1963. In the months following his visit, I had been working on getting their music aired on radio stations across the Midwest. He and our other brother Peter came to visit me in September.
