Mildred Welsh, 94, Flower Mart chairwoman

Mildred Welsh, longtime Women's Civic League member and former Flower Mart chairwoman, died Friday of congestive heart failure. She was 94 and lived in Towson.

Mildred Conway was born in Cumberland in 1905. In 1928, she married Thomas Owen Carroll, a Monumental Life Insurance Co. executive. Because of her husband's job, they moved to nine cities, and settled in Baltimore in 1947. Then she became active in the Women's Civic League.

She held numerous board positions in the Baltimore City Women's Civic League chapter and was president of the Wiltondale Chapter. For several years, she was chairwoman of the Flower Mart, the Civic League's spring street festival in Mount Vernon.

"She was a whirlwind, full of energy for 94 9/10 years," said her son Joseph P. Carroll of Timonium.

Mrs. Welsh's first husband, Thomas Carroll, died in 1969. Three years later, she married Charles Welsh. He died in 1975.

A memorial service was held Sunday.

She also is survived by two other sons, Owen Thomas Carroll of Lewes, Del., and William Carroll of Chatham, N. J.; a daughter, Mary Ann Lund of Towson; 15 grandchildren; and many great-grandchildren.
