Joan Marie Johnson Faust Has Died

Joan Marie Johnson Faust, one of the founding members of the Dixie Cups, has died, according to Barbara Ann Hawkins, another member of the group and a cousin to Johnson.
Johnson (right in photo) passed away yesterday of congestive heart failure in New Orleans, Louisiana at the age of 72.  

The Dixie Cups had five career hits, but none bigger than their first, the great song "Chapel Of Love".  It soared to #1 in 1964 and stayed there three weeks.
