Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the NFL, said in a statement that he had known Hunt for more than 40 years and had always been “struck by her warmth and grace.”
“Norma’s sense of family extended to the Chiefs’ organization, which she greatly adored,” read the statement. “Norma was one of the most ardent supporters of the Chiefs and the NFL; she was knowledgeable about and delighted in every facet of the game.
She described the team’s members as “real-life superheroes” and enjoyed being around them. Norma was the only woman to see every Super Bowl ever played, including the two recent victories by the Chiefs. Hunt passed away in 2006. Since then, the Chiefs’ chairman has been their son Clark.
