Jane Smith Carroll Medical receptionist


August 15, 1993

Jane Smith Carroll, who lived in Pikesville for many years and later in Eldersburg and Ellicott City, died Wednesday of complications from Parkinson's disease at a nursing home in Boca Raton, Fla.

Mrs. Carroll, 80, was a business machine operator as a young woman and, in the 1960s, was a receptionist in a Pikesville doctor's office.

Born Jane Smith in Baltimore, she was a 1930 graduate of Mount St. Agnes High School.

Her husband, Clarence Gordon "Kin" Carroll, died in 1983. He was a retired bakery manager for the A & P Food Stores and, in the 1920s and 1930s, an entertainer who sang and played the ukulele. He taught Arthur Godfrey to play the ukulele while both were performing on a Washington radio station, family members said.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. tomorrow at St. Charles Borromeo Roman Catholic Church, 101 Church Lane, Pikesville.

Mrs. Carroll is survived by a son, Lee Carroll of Boca Raton and Colts Neck, N.J.; two daughters, Jane Davidson of Mattapoisett, Mass., and Ashqelon, Israel, and Leslie Carroll of San Francisco; and five grandchildren.
