Florence Carroll was born as Florence Brunese in Millerton, Duchess County, New York, USA on 9 June 1907 to Italian-born father Paul Emile and Mary Ann (McCann) Brunese. As a young adult, she worked as a cook in Lakeville, Connecticut. She married John Carroll on 9 February 1930, and the couple had nine children, four of whom are deceased as of 2014.

At the time of her 107th birthday in 2014, Carroll had 12 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren. Her hobbies are birdwatching and gardening. On her 110th birthday in 2017, the Today Show included her in their list of people celebrating a milestone.
