Unhappy Full obit.

Actress Heather Menzies-Urich, best known for portraying Louisa von Trapp in the 1965 film “The Sound of Music,” died Sunday night. She was 68.

Menzies-Urich, the widow of actor Robert Urich, had been recently diagnosed with cancer, according to her son Ryan Urich.

Urich said his mother died on Christmas Eve, surrounded by her children and family members.

“She was an actress, a ballerina and loved living her life to the fullest,” Urich said. “She was not in any pain but, nearly four weeks after her diagnosis of terminal brain cancer, she had enough and took her last breath on this earth at 7:22 pm.”

Born in Toronto, Menzies-Urich’s first screen credit came in the TV series “The Farmer’s Daughter” in 1964. She was 15 when she was cast as the third-oldest of the seven von Trapp children in “The Sound of Music,” a box office smash that went on to win five Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Her other feature films credits included “Hawaii,” “The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes,” “Piranha,” and “Endangered Species. Her TV credits included “Dragnet,” “Bonanza,” “Marcus Welby M.D.,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” and starring as Jessica 6 in the TV series “Logan’s Run.”

Menzies-Urich’s family moved from Canada to the Los Angeles area when she was a teenager. She was 14 when she landed the part of Louisa in the landmark 20th Century Fox production, directed by Robert Wise, that starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.

Menzies-Urich met her future husband while filming a commercial for Libby’s Corned Beef Hash in the mid-1970s. Urich died in 2002 of a rare form of cancer. Menzies-Urich created the Robert Urich Foundation and spent most of her time in recent years to the organization that raises money for cancer patients.

An epic film: how I miss those gentler times and an actress gone too soon. https://youtu.be/i_u-YPah1n8

How horrible. Especially sad that she died of cancer like her husband. Great movie, I've been planning on watching again soon.

Very sorry to hear this. I remember her from many TV roles in the 1970s, particularly her role as Jessica in the short lived "Logan's Run".

Both she and her husband seemed like a class act.

I have the complete series of Vegas, starring the late Robert Urich, her husband, and Heather was in 2 episodes with her husband. In one, she played a psychotic paramedic who killed woman that Dan dated because she was obsessed over him. In the the other Ep, she played a carefree private eye who almost gets herself killed because of her arrogance. She was so beautiful. R. I. P. Heather, and tell Robert we said hello.
