Carmen Berra, wife of New York Yankees great Yogi Berra, has died. She was 85.

The Yankees confirmed that she died Thursday night in New Jersey's Essex County. The team didn't say how she died.

The couple was married in January 1949 and had recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary.

Berra, a catcher, was a 10-time World Series champion with the Yankees and later served as the team's manager.

In addition to her husband, Carmen Berra is survived by three sons including Dale, a former major league baseball player; 11 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Her funeral will be private. Donations can be made to the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center in Little Falls.
