Iowa’s Stacie and Carrie Stoelting sang the National Anthem with John Wayne’s daughter, Aissa Wayne. The trio sang for screen legend Maureen O’Hara at a sold-out event with hundreds in attendance.
Maureen O’Hara visited Iowa on Saturday Winterset, John Wayne’s birthplace. For her final public appearance, the 92 year old actress visited Winterset to help raise money for the construction of the John Wayne Museum.
Famous for films ranging from Miracle on 34th Street to The Quiet Man, Maureen O’Hara has delighted audiences for over 7 decades. She often worked long-time friend John Wayne. Together they made five films together: Rio Grande, The Quiet Man, The Wings of Eagles, McLintock! and Big Jake.
“Stacie and I have enjoyed John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara’s movies since childhood. John Wayne loved God and his country; he is a symbol of America. We will always cherish the memory of singing with his daughter for Maureen O’Hara.”
