Condolences to family, friends and fans of singer JO STAFFORD, who died SUNDAY at her home in the CENTURY CITY section of LOS ANGELES at 90.
STAFFORD sang with the PIED PIPERS and the DORSEY BROTHERS before going solo in 1942. Her career peaked in the 1950's, with several chart hits topped by the number one smash "You Belong to Me" in 1952. She and husband PAUL WESTON also moonlighted as the parody musical duo JONATHAN AND DARLENE EDWARDS, mangling lounge music on several comedy albums and winning a Grammy for Best Comedy Album in 1960.
