Condolences to Ms. Howard-Powell and Mr. Bryant

Dear Thurgood Marshall Families,

As you may know, two of our staff members recently lost a relative, Cora Jean Howard, to COVID-19.  Shari Howard-Powell lost her beloved mother and Deron Bryant lost his beloved grandmother.  To honor the matriarch of their family, Cora Jean Howard, a retired educator from Emerson Elementary, the family has created “The Howard Family Memorial Fund” through The Alliance for Education.  Please consider donating to this fund to honor the memory of Cora Jean Howard.

You can donate directly via The Alliance for Education by clicking on this link.  When donating please scroll down and select “The Howard Family Memorial Fund.”

The Seattle Times published an article on Cora Jean Howard’s life, and if you would like to leave a memory or condolence for the family please visit the Dignity Memorial page.
