Myra Kraft, wife of Pats owner, dies

Kraft, 68, had battled cancer

Myra Kraft, the wife of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, died early this morning.

Kraft, 68, died after a battle with cancer.

“Words cannot express the deep sorrow that we feel in learning of the passing of Myra Hiatt Kraft,” the Patriots said in a statement. “We are all heartbroken. The global philanthropic community and the New England Patriots family have suffered a great loss.”

Kraft was a member of many charity organizations including chair of the United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley.

She was a fixture by her husband’s side whenever broadcasts of Patriot’s games showed the owner’s box.
