Anita Pointer From The Pointer Sisters Dies At 74

Anita Pointer, one of the founders of the iconic group The Pointer Sisters, has died at the age of 74.

A rep told TMZ that she passed from a "somewhat lengthy and heroic battle with cancer," adding that she died peacefully at home Saturday surrounded by her family.

The Pointer Sisters came about in the late '60s after Anita quit her job as a secretary. She and her sisters, Bonnie, June, and Ruth, formed the iconic group that became one of the most popular groups of the '70s.

The group also went on to win Grammys and other awards, and were the first African American group to appear and perform on stage at the Grand Ole Opry.

They had hit songs, including "I'm So Excited," "Jump," "Slow Hand," "Fire," "He's So Shy," and "Neutron Dance."

"While we are deeply saddened by the loss of Anita, we are comforted in knowing she is now with her daughter, Jada, and her sisters, June & Bonnie, and at peace," her family members said.

"She was the one that kept all of us close and together for so long. Her love of our family will live on in each of us. Please respect our privacy during this period of grief and loss. Heaven is a more loving, beautiful place with Anita there."

The Baller Alert Family sends our condolences to Anita Pointer's family during this time.
