Died On This Date (July 28, 1996) Marge Ganser / The Shangri-Las

Posted by themusicsover on July 28, 2010

Marge Ganser
1947 – July 28, 1996

Marge Ganser was one of the four singers in the ’60s girl group, the Shangri-Las.  She, along with identical twin, Mary Ann Ganser,  and another set of sisters, Mary Weiss and Betty Weiss, recorded such hits as “Leader Of The Pack” and “Remember (Walking In The Sand).”  Even though Mary Weiss was the lead singer, the outspoken Marge was seen as the leader of the group.  After record label problems and a downturn in their popularity, the Shangri-Las called it quits in 1968.  Marge Ganser later went to work for the telephone company and died of breast cancer on July 28, 1996.
