Obituary: Kari Howard

Kari Howard (photo), a Reuters storytelling editor for the past four years, died of cancer on Monday at the age of 59.

Christopher Goffard of the Los Angeles Times, where she worked as an editor from 1992 to 2015, wrote, “She described her journalism mantra as ‘Examine closely. Connect with people. Don’t rush.’”


Howard was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 when the disease was already in an advanced stage. Late last year she returned to Maine from London where she had been based and continued working for Reuters until recent weeks. ■
