The wife of evangelist Oral Roberts has died in a California hospital after suffering a head injury during a fall. Evelyn Roberts was 88.

A spokesman for Tulsa-based Oral Roberts University says Roberts fell in the parking lot of a dentist's office Tuesday, striking her head on the pavement and causing massive internal bleeding. She lapsed into a coma a short time later.

The couple's surviving children, Richard Roberts, the university's president, and Roberta Roberts Potts flew to Newport Beach, California, Wednesday to be with their mother and father.

Oral and Evelyn Roberts married more than 66 years ago, and she worked with her husband to build his television ministry and university.
