By Andrew Marchand
Carmen and Yankees legend Yogi Berra were married for 65 years.
TAMPA, Fla. -- Carmen Berra, Yogi Berra's wife of 65 years, died Thursday night. She was 85 years old.
“On behalf of the entire New York Yankees organization, we offer our deepest condolences to the Berra family," said Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner in a statement. “Having known Yogi and Carmen for so long, it is almost impossible to imagine two people who complemented each other better than they did. We will always remember Carmen’s smile and sense of humor, and her kindness and generosity will be dearly missed.”
Yogi, 88, and Carmen had three sons, 11 grandchildren and one great grandchild.
