Wareham, Mass. – Margaret Carroll Neill, a former Broadway actress and resident of Flanders, N.J., died Friday at the Roland Thatcher Nursing Home here. She was 95.

She was born in Lyons, Kan., and lived in New York City and Great Neck, Long Island, N.Y., before moving to Flanders in 1936. She moved here several months ago.
