Fullerton, CA (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda’s widow, Jora Soda, has died. She was 91 years old.

She died at Fullerton’s home on Monday night, the team said on Tuesday. The cause of death was not revealed.

Former Joan Miller met Tommy Lasorda in a minor league baseball game in her hometown of Greenville, South Carolina, and played for The Spinners. They got married on April 14, 1950. The union lasted 70 years until Tommy died in January last year at the age of 93.

Lasorda is survived by her daughter Laura, her granddaughter Emily, and Greenville’s sister Gladys Reeves. She died prior to her son Tom Jr.
