This afternoon, former Steelers head coach Bill Cowher issued the following statement on behalf of his family regarding the passing of his wife Kaye Cowher.
“Sadly, my wife Kaye lost her battle with cancer on Friday. Kaye was such a loving and compassionate person and she was the foundation of our family. Kaye was always at my side throughout my career as a player, coach, NFL analyst and, most importantly, as a parent to our three daughters Meagan, Lauren and Lindsay. They will miss their mother dearly.
“Kaye was the rock that we could all lean on in the tough times. She was looked up to by so many people and I cannot say enough about what Kaye meant to our family. Her memory will never be forgotten. We would like to thank everyone who has kept our family in their thoughts and prayers and for those who have reached out to express their condolences. It is clear that Kaye touched a lot of lives.”
For anyone interested in making a donation on Kaye’s behalf, the Cowher family has asked that those be directed to Family Resources of Pennsylvania (412)-363-1702;
www.familyresourcesofpa.org, the charity that Kaye so passionately supported.
I am not very familiar with Family Resources of Pennsylvania, however Bill Cowher went at great pains during his resignation press conference to reaffirm his commitment and his wife’s commitment to this organization’s mission and by all accounts the Cowhers made good on that promise.
