Alicia Landry, widow of legendary Cowboys coach Tom Landry, passes away

The widow of legendary Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry has passed away.

Alicia Landry passed away on Thursday at the age of 91. She grew up in Dallas after being born in Georgia, and attended Hockaday and Highland Park High School.

The Cowboys released a statement extending their "deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the Landry family."

Alicia and Tom met on a blind date while at the University of Texas, and they were described as "a match literally made in heaven."

The two were married from 1949, until Tom’s death in 2000.

Instead of flowers, the family asks for donations to the North Texas FCA at or to Highland Park United Methodist Church in memory of Alicia Landry.

A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
