Deborah Howell was the best role model any woman who aspired to a career in journalism could want. She was always encouraging, to the point, fiesty and above all a person who told you the truth. She and I worked together in Knight Ridder and then in ASNE. There was no one quite like her and I will miss her.

I met Deborah years ago, but as a Newhouse editor at the Star-Ledger, I had a greater chance to interact with her. Funny, witty, smart, a trailblazer who helped women and folks of color. We thank her very much for that. And yes, she called often after Pulitzer judging. A loss for all of us who love the craft and diversity.

Deborah knew how to ask, when to listen and what to write. Few master all three. May she rest in peace, but not boredom.

I had the privilege of working with many outstanding editors at Knight Ridder. Deborah was special. Her combination of talent, instinct, guts, drive, passion, empathy and commitment to great (not just good) journalism made her one of the remarkable editors of her time.
