Laurie Carr, wife of former UM coach Lloyd Carr, passes away at age 70

Sharing is caring!

The Michigan Wolverines family has suffered a loss this afternoon.

Laurie Carr, who married former Wolverines head coach Lloyd Carr in 1994, has passed away today at the age of 70 after a battle with cancer.

Upon the couple’s move to South Carolina after years of remaining in Michigan after Carr’s coaching career came to a close, Laurie was diagnosed with the disease in 2019. They returned to Ann Arbor so she could receive treatment at The University of Michigan hospital.

The pair married prior to Carr’s promotion to head coach from his previous position as the team’s defensive coordinator.

  1. Coach: I’m so sorry to hear this. It was my pleasure to get to know Laurie at several lunches at the BIG Meetings in Chicago. She was a charming lady. I lost my wife, Cindy, to cancer in 2006. I know you have done a lot to help fight this terrible and cowardly disease, and I will continue to fight it until my last day on this earth. My deepest sympathies.

  2. Coach: Our deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. Laurie was a lovely lady and will be missed greatly. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
