Bobbi and Nick Ercoline are well-known for being the pair in the classic cover photo of the Woodstock album.
Although Bethel Woods is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the greatest festival of all time, this joyful couple is celebrating their 50th year together and their fourth year as Bethel Woods volunteers.
Sadly, Bobbi Ercoline died on Saturday, according to the man holding her in a raggedy blanket amid a field of hippies in the iconic photo.
Bobbi Ercoline’s cause of death: How did Bobbi Ercoline die?
Bobbi died after a long illness, according to her husband Nick Ercoline, who broke the news on Facebook. “She lived a good life and left the world a much better place,” he wrote “If you knew her, you loved her. She lived by her saying, ‘Be kind.'” There was no mention of a cause of death or an age.
Bobbi and Nick Ercoline were on the cover of Woodstock: Music From the Original Soundtrack and More, a live album of performances from the legendary 1969 music event, released in 1970.
The pair, both 20, had only been dating for a few months when they heard about the festival on the radio in Middletown, N.Y., approximately an hour south of Bethel, where the performance was taking place. They went to the music festival on the spur of the moment.
