Sister Ronnie Spector pays tribute to her
Estelle Bennett, one of The Ronettes, has died. She was 67.
Bennett was found dead in her New Jersey home on Wednesday (February 11) by police, after relatives had been unable to contact her.
Her brother-in-law, Jonathan Greenfield – who is married to sister and fellow Ronette Ronnie Spector – said the time and cause of death is yet to be confirmed, reports Associated Press.
Writing on Ronniespector.com, Spector paid tribute to her sister in a post entitled ‘Estelle is gone’.
She wrote: “To my beloved sister, rest in peace, you deserve it. I love you, Ronnie.”
The Phil Spector-produced band were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2007.
As well as her sister, Bennett is survived by a daughter and three grandsons.
