Country singer "Lady" Marion Worth died Sunday (Dec. 19) of complications
from emphysema, according to a Reuters report. Worth, whose birth
name was Mary Ann Ward, was perhaps best known for her 1963 country and
pop hit "Shake Me I Rattle (Squeeze Me I Cry)." Worth performed at the
Grand Ole Opry in Nashville from 1963 to 1980, and she was also one of
the first female performers to play Carnegie Hall in New York. Worth was
64, according to Reuters, though some biographies suggest that she may
have been as old as 69.
