 NEW YORK (AP) -Carrie Rozelle, the widow of NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle, died Monday at her home in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif. She was 70.
Carrie Rozelle founded the National Center for Learning Disabilities in 1977 to promote education and develop skills for families with learning-disabled children.
``She was really a visionary in this field,'' said James Wendorf, the center's executive director. ``She knew parents needed help and figured out a way to help them.''
Pete Rozelle died in 1996.
Carrie Rozelle is survived by daughter Jeanne MacEachern of Santa Clarita, Calif., sons Ralph K. Cooke of Lexington, Ky., and Philip Kent Cooke of Tiburon, Calif., and five grandchildren.
A memorial service was held Friday at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Del Mar. An additional memorial service is expected to be held in New York later this month.
