Tex Hollywood - June 5, 2023

Norma Hunt, the widow of Kansas City Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt and mother of team owner Clark Hunt and grandmother of Gracie has died. She was 85 years old.

The Chiefs posted a statement about the wife of their founding father, stating that she was passionate about the family's sports teams, by Lamar's side every step of the way from the AFL and NFL merge, to MLS, Tennis and everything else they were invested in, including the founding investment into the Chicago Bulls.

They said that she was the only thing that rivaled Lamar's love for sports and the two found joy at home, in stadium and around the world.

A life that was well lived, I am sure.

Granddaughter and babe Gracie Hunt, who we market as the NFL fan's dream girl, posted a touching tribute in her caption:

My Mimi Norma was an absolute legend. The only woman to see all 58 Super Bowls. With a precious Texas accent, she was humble, beautiful, brilliant, hilarious, joyful, fun and fierce. She was an eternal optimist, the best cheerleader and so much more. She was extraordinary.

She was a force and was just as passionate about sports as she was about politics and making the world a better place. She lived each day with wisdom and strength. She loved Jesus and instilled Christian values in our family. When I think of my grandmother, Proverbs 31:25 comes to mind, “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.”

Mimi Norma was not only Miss Manners, the First Lady of Football, and a best dressed style icon, but someone who genuinely cared about each person she met and made everyone feel special. She literally lit up every room she was in.

She quietly and anonymously supported people and causes, while vocally standing for patriotism, capitalism, and the underserved community. She loved God and this country.

My heart is broken but I know she’s in Heaven with her Savior, and reunited with the love of her life. And they’re probably smiling up at Jesus and down at the Chiefs at the White House today

Today was also a day the KC Chiefs went to the White House where Biden had a moment of silence for Norma before giving you a glimpse into his College football career:
