I read that Barbara Orbison, the widow and manager of the legendary Roy Orbison, died Dec. 6 in Los Angeles on what was the 23rd anniversary of her husband’s death. She was 60. Roy died at the younger age of 52.
According to The Mirror, she died from pancreatic cancer while surrounded by her sons. She was diagnosed in April, mere days before what would’ve been Roy’s 75th birthday — another ironic twist of fate.
