This piece was first published in the Asbury Park Press: In a murder-suicide in Marlboro, New Jersey, a husband kills his wife and himself. Jane Norris was the wife of renowned Marlboro man Robert Norris, who died at the age of 90 at his home in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Robert Norris, Jane’s husband, was a rancher best known as the original “Marlboro Man.” Norris was born in Chicago in 1929, grew up in Illinois, and attended college at the University of Kentucky. Norris, who grew up in a family of financiers and attorneys, got into the horse and cattle industry after learning about ranching from an uncle.
By 1953, he had relocated to Ft. Collins, Colorado, and purchased a ranch. While in Colorado, he acquired the T-Cross brand, as well as a 20,000-acre property that became the T-Cross Ranch. Later, he purchased a second property in Arizona.
According to stories, the ranches became the location for Marlboro’s first ads, and after meeting Norris, the company chose to substitute a professional model for the job with him. He ultimately dropped out of the Marlboro campaign after having children, alleging that his appearance in the advertisements was “setting a horrible example” for them and that he was not a smoker.
He worked on the Marlboro ads for 14 years. Norris coupled his ranching passion with compassion by organizing animal rides for disadvantaged youngsters. Norris is survived by a sister, four children, thirteen grandchildren, and eighteen great-grandchildren. Jane Norris, his lifelong wife, died before him.
Jane Wright was born on April 28, 1927, in Tacoma, Washington to parents Robert and Caroline Wright. She graduated from DePauw University’s Asbury College of Liberal Arts in Greencastle, Indiana, in 1950. That same year, she married Robert Norris.
According to her obituary, Jane was a loyal wife who accompanied her husband on long business and humanitarian excursions around the United States. Jane Wright Norris died in 2016 at the Pikes Peak Hospice after 65 years of marriage.
