Mrs. Carroll passed away at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington. She was 81.

Dave Cobb, an executive assistant to Julian Carroll, says Mrs. Carroll died early Wednesday. He says Mrs. Carroll became ill Monday and was taken to Frankfort Regional Medical Center and later transferred to UK, where she had been undergoing tests to determine her illness.

The Carrolls were married for more than 60 years and had four children.
