Amargosa Opera House & Death Valley Junction
I was camping with Great Outdoors at Tecopa Hot Springs this past weekend. One day we took a little drive up to Death Valley Junction to see the Amargosa Opera House. My first visit there. Read all about the opera house and hotel here. Marta Becket died January 30, 2017, at age 92.
RIP Marta. Your post is the first I heard of her passing last month. I've seen her a few times, when she performed on stage, when she performed from a wheelchair, and then seemed to be rendered mute when I last saw here in the hotel lobby, possibly 2014. Loosing her partner Wilget was very hard on her, and the decline was hard for her after that. Here are some snaps I took of Marta on stage in 2006; http://ednixon.com/pix/2006/martabecket/

Have been there several times, stayed at the Motel a few times as well. We got to meet Marta on our last visit there. Tim has read her book as well. Amazing place, you can also find it on Ghost Hunters. They have been there a few times.
