Pat Carroll, Voice of Ursula in ‘The Little Mermaid,’ Passes at 95

Pat Carroll, an Emmy-Award-winning screen, stage star and voice actress, has died. She was 95.

Carroll’s daughter, Kerry Karsian, confirmed to ET on Sunday that Carroll died on Saturday at her home in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, due to pneumonia, adding, “She was deeply loved and will be much missed.”

Carroll was perhaps best known to contemporary audiences as the voice of the evil sea witch Ursula in Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

She was a fixture on the variety shows of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, and took home a primetime Emmy in 1956 for her work on Sid Caesar’s “Caesar’s Hour.”

Our hearts go out to all of her family, friends and devoted fans. She will be missed.

Part of the goal Michele has for The Main Street Mouse is not only to keep members informed, but to create somewhat of a Disney Family by relating to others through personal experiences and opinions. Also, Michele is making it a priority to share stories of inspiration and hope to other Disney Fans in an effort to share the Magic and hopefully make a difference in the lives of others. ~ I enjoy writing personal perspective blogs, doing TMSM Meet Ups for our readers, and keeping the constant interaction going with others, sharing the Disney Magic to people when they can’t be at their Happy Place.
