"My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathies to John and the entire Mara family during this difficult time," Hunt said. "Ann was one of the most thoughtful and passionate people I have ever known. She cared deeply about her faith, her family and her beloved football team, and her legacy will never be forgotten."
Statement from Norma Hunt, wife of Lamar Hunt, on the passing of Ann Mara:
"Ann was a precious friend of mine for decades dating back to when her husband, Wellington, was the president of the NFC, and Lamar was president of the AFC, and I cherished the relationship we shared. Ann was such a beautiful person – warm, bright, graceful, kind and full of fun. She was a wonderful, supportive wife, a terrific mother, an adoring grandmother and the Giants number-one fan. The entire National Football League has truly lost a treasure, and I will miss her dearly."
