80s pop star Edith Bliss has passed away at the age of 52.
Edith took the attention of the Australian music chart in December 1979 with the top 10 hit ‘If Its Love You Want’.
She then recorded two more singles ‘Heart of Stone’ and ‘Two Single Beds’ before releasing her album ‘Sheer Bliss’ in 1980.
Steve Kilbey from The Church wrote her next song but Edith decided to change careers and got into television as a reporter for Simon Townsend’s Wonder World.
She married Wonderworld sound mixer Mark Tanner and had four children Eden, Madison, Harrison and Lawson.
In 2006, as Edith Tanner, she appeared on the final Wheel of Fortune and won.
At her Facebook page her daughter Eden has left the following message:
To Edith’s many loved ones: today the world lost a wonderful mother, a compassionate friend and one hell of a woman. She passed very peacefully early this morning and her infectious spirit will be missed by all. You’re with the angels now, Mum.
