Lona Stevens

Singer and songwriter; co-writer of the seminal hit "Sally, Go 'Round the Roses" in 1963  -- via AKA Leonora Cotaldo, Lona Kiser. The weird, spooky, minor-key vibe with its ringing chords is said to be the seed of the future San Francisco Sound in rock/pop. Her loving obituary indicates that she was quite an extraordinary and good person.
