Rock Remembrances

March 29, 1985 – Jeanine Deckers, “The Singing Nun” (also known as Jeannine Deckers, Sœur Sourire (“Sister Smile”) and Sister Luc-Gabrielle) and her lover Annie Pécher die by suicide by an overdose of barbiturates and alcohol. Deckers was 52; Pécher was 41. The Singing Nun’s 1963 single “Dominique” sold over two million copies and won a Grammy Award for the year’s best Gospel song.  Deckers and Pécher were despondent over the pending loss of a school they co-founded for autistic children because Belgian tax authorities claimed Deckers owed $63,000 in back taxes.
