Viewing a video about the life of Norma “Jean” Howard, one gets the sense she was a loving and caring woman. After speaking with her family and friends and hearing their testaments about her character, the sense becomes a reality.
Howard bravely battled ovarian cancer for seven years, her family said. She died in June of 2016 at the age 76. Her family has now made sure others still in that battle have some comforts as they go through treatment.
