From ABC News

Olivia Newton-John’s older sister, Rona Newton-John, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor last month, died May 24 at age 70.

“She was surrounded by the love of her four children-Fiona, Brett, Tottie and Emerson and her wonderful friends,” Newton-John wrote on her Facebook page. “I will miss her forever-my beautiful, smart, talented, funny, brave sister Rona.”

The 64-year-old actress also battled cancer just 20 years ago and had always been supportive of her sister, postponing a Las Vegas show to be with her in April. ”As a cancer thriver, myself… I am aware of the importance of love, support and family during this journey,” she said at the time.
