Yesterday marked the sad passing of the mother of former UConn Lady Huskies basketball player now working for ESPN Rebekah Lobo’s mother Ruth Lobo and the wife of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s wife Myra from advanced breast cancer.
Mrs. Lobo, who was very supportive of Ms. Lobo, first at UConn, which during her time had won its very first NCAA women’s basketball championship for the University of Connecticut, but also a time playing for the WNBA’s New York Liberty team before going on to work for ESPN covering women’s college basketball games during the NCAA women’s college basketball season. Mrs. Lobo and Ms. Lobo both also wrote a book about the former’s experience of dealing with breast cancer while the later played UConn college basketball.
Mrs. Kraft made a difference in what she did, not just only in the Boston, MA, as well as New England region, but around the globe.
Both will be missed. RIP both Ruth Ann Lobo and Myra Kraft.
