NYACK, NEW YORK - The last original American Beatle's fan club member, Trixie Prospector, died peacefully in her sleep today in Nyack at the age of 71, according to her younger brother, Buster Prospector.
"Trixie was the Beatle's greatest fan since she first saw them on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964," commented Buster. "She joined the fan club right away and never married. She devoted herself to the Fab Four and totally filled her house with Beatle posters and pictures plastered on every wall, even in the bathroom. She had Beatle dolls, mugs, plates, shirts, hats, and toys displayed all over the place. We could hardly get through the house when we visited because there was so much Beatle stuff!"
Until the very last, Trixie was listening to her favorite (and last recorded) Beatle album, "Abbey Road". Her brother mentioned she was clutching a photo of Paul McCartney when she passed on.
When asked what the family plans to do with all the Beatle Memorabilia Trixie collected, Buster said, "We are selling it on eBay to try to raise enough money to give her a decent funeral. She didn't make any provisions for when she finally left this world. Trixie spent every last penny she had on her Beatle collection!"
