Published in the Chicago Tribune (IL) on Sep. 20, 1979:

Artist-photographer Carol Duckman Royko, 44, wife of Chicago Sun-Times columnist Mike Royko, died Wednesday in Columbus Hospital. Mrs. Royko was a partner in the "I Care" line of cards for the terminally ill and for those who had suffered the death of a loved one. A Sun-Times spokesman said the cause of death was a massive intracerebral hemorrhage. A Chicago native, Mrs. Royko was a graduate of Taft High School and a national champion baton twirler with the Logan Square Drum and Bugle Corps. Besides her husband, she is survived by two sons, M. David and Robert Frederick; and her parents, Frederick and Mildred Duckman. Services will be private.
