Judy Coughlin, wife of legendary NFL coach Tom Coughlin, dies after lengthy battle with rare disease

Judy Coughlin has died.

The wife of two-time Super Bowl-winning coach Tom Coughlin died following a lengthy health battle.

She was 77-years-old.


Tom Coughlin is a Waterloo native, and led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl victories.

“My cherished wife and our beloved mother and grandmother, Judy Whitaker Coughlin, passed away this morning at the age of 77. Judy was a remarkable woman in every way. She lived a life filled with love and unselfishly gave her heart and soul to others. Judy made you feel like an old friend from the first hug to the last,” Tom Coughlin said in a statement. “She was a mother to all on and off the field. For everyone who knew and loved Judy, the enormity of her absence cannot be put into words, but the immense kindness she showed to others will always endure. Our hearts are broken, but we know she is free from suffering and at peace with our Lord.”

The Giants posted a tribute on Twitter.
