ST. LOUIS (AP) — The wife of St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial has died at the age of 91.

The team said Lillian Musial passed away on Thursday.

Lillian Labash was one of eight children whose parents owned a grocery store in McKean, Pa. Lillian and Stan Musial were high school sweethearts who married in 1940.

Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. said in a statement that the organization has lost a member of its family and that Lil Musial was the love of Stan Musial's life.

Stan Musial, who is 91, has been in poor health the last few years.
