Howard's husband, Major Howard, says he misses his wife as a friend and a teacher "who cared for her students."

Howard taught at Gwendolyn Brooks College Prep on the city's South Side. She also worked with special needs students and at a realty company. Family members say she was at that office May 29 when a bullet came through a wall and struck her in the head.
