Australian musician Judith Durham has tragically passed away at the age of 79.

The singer and songwriter was a vocalist in the Australian folk music group The Seekers, which formed in Melbourne in 1962.

They were one of the biggest groups of the sixties, producing songs including I’ll Never Find Another You, I’m Australian and Georgie Girl.

The band only performed for five years, from 1963 to 1968, when Judith left to pursue a solo career, but sold over 50 million records worldwide.

She died in palliative care on Friday night (August 5) after being treated at Melbourne’s The Alfred Hospital, The Guardian reports.

She died of complications from the long-standing lung disease bronchiectasis and social media tributes are pouring in for the much-loved singer.

Judith Durham’s husband died in 1994

Judith was married to British pianist Ron Edgeworth for 35 years from 1969 to 1994.

According to IMDb, he was their music director and an actor and composer, best known for Raw Deal (1977) and Cash & Company (1975).

They married at a Scots church in Melbourne and lived in the UK and Switzerland until the mid-1980s before moving to Nambur, Queensland.

He was diagnosed with motor neuron disease and sadly died on 10 December 1994, along with Judith. He never married again.

Judith believed in karma and reincarnation, so it was always comforting to know that Ron continues on his spiritual journey.

“She tries not to hold him back in this world. She keeps warm and happy memories and gratitude for her most wonderful marriage that sustains and comforts her all the time,” says her website.

Judith’s website suggests that “their love for each other and the music woven into every part of their lives completely fulfilled them”.

Although Athol, who was also in the band, is the father of Alisa and Keith, and Pam Potter also had two children, Cassie and Matthew.

Bruce also had children and is the father of Claire and Dan.
