She was 78.

May she rest in peace.

Darlene Love was associated with The Crystals but not an official member. See:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darlene_Love#Early_career

Phil Spector was married to Veronica Bennett (aka Ronnie Spector). They divorced in 1974.

The full impact of Phil Spector's musical legacy is impossible to measure without accounting for the creative labor of the Black women whose voices are essential to Spector's "wall of sound," including the late Ronnie Spector.
