"She was the only person we knew who rivaled his love of sports. The two of them found such joy together, whether at home, or in stadium stands around the world."

"Norma’s sense of family extended to the Chiefs’ organization, which she greatly adored," Goodell said. "Norma was one of the most passionate fans of the Chiefs and the NFL, and understood and enjoyed every aspect of the game. She loved being around the team and referred to the players as ‘real-life superheroes.’ Norma attended every Super Bowl ever played, including the two recent Chiefs’ victories, and was the only woman to do so."

The Dallas Cowboys called her an amazing beacon of joy for her teams and said she lived a life full of love and caring for others that was felt by everyone who knew her.

"She brought a relentless positive and passionate presence to everything she touched, especially her life in sports, and we'll be forever grateful for Norma and her late husband, Lamar," the Cowboys organization said in a statement.

The family did not announce a cause of death.
