Anita Pointer Death, Obituary – The death of Anita Pointer, who was 74 years old, was announced by her family today, which is a terrible and unfortunate development. Roger Neal, who served as the publicist for Anita Pointer, was the one who delivered the statement, and he said, “She was surrounded by family at the time of her departure.” She was a founding member of the group that would later become known as the Pointer Sisters, and she was awarded a Grammy for both her songwriting and singing abilities. Anita’s sister Ruth, her brothers Aaron and Fritz, and her granddaughter Roxie McKain Pointer issued the following statement after Anita passed away:
“While we are very grieved by the loss of Anita, we are comforted in knowing she is now with her daughter, Jada, and her sisters June and Bonnie, and at peace.” She was the one who maintained our connection with one another and our unity through such a significant span of time. Even when Mom is gone, her love for our family will live on in each one of us since it was so deeply felt by her. We would much appreciate it if you could respect our privacy during this difficult time of grieving and loss. Thank you. Because Anita is a resident there, Heaven has become a more beautiful and kind place to be.
In honor of Anita Pointer and in tribute to her legacy, the Hollywood Museum will maintain the “EVER AFTER Exhibit” that bears her name. This exhibition exhibits some of the Pointer Sisters’ original stage costumes, awards, and other mementos from their extraordinary career that has spanned over half a century. This magnificent event will continue in the spirit of paying sincere tribute to Anita and as a celebration of the successful career of the Pointer Sisters. Anita, we would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the remarkable collection that you have curated.
This collection features a significant number of the original costumes that you and your sisters have worn throughout the course of your distinguished careers, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for doing so. We are certain that those who admire you will find the experience of viewing this seminal exhibition to be enjoyable.
