Patty Andrews, the last surviving member of World War II singing trio the Andrews Sisters, died yesterday, aged 94, her publicist said.

The Andrews Sisters - Patty and siblings LaVerne and Maxene - were famous for hits including Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B and Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree, with which they entertained troops on countless tours.

Patricia Marie Andrews died of natural causes at her home in Northridge, northwest of Los Angeles, said spokesman Alan Eichler.
