ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK’S WIFE DIES FROM COVID-19
The singer, 84, said Patricia, who he called Popea, “slipped away” yesterday after suffering Alzheimer’s disease for more than a decade.
Humperdinck, born Arnold George Dorsey, shared of photo of them together on Instagram from his home in Los Angeles.
He wrote: “Our family is heartbroken over the loss of my darling wife. Last night, she slipped softly away, as if by God’s clockwork.
“The last rites were given just before our usual prayers at the 8pm hour, by our nephew, Father Paul. It was 4am for him.
“We were so grateful to have him gently lead Popea through this last chapter, with a familiar voice and such love.”
The chart-topper said his wife was surrounded by three of their four children when she died, with their fourth on a video call.
