Lonnie Ali was her husband’s greatest champion. The woman who was Muhammad Ali’s partner in promoting the humanitarian ideals that dominated his life after the boxing ring received a standing ovation Friday as she took the stage in an oversized hat that shielded her eyes. The tributes also came from other family members, including daughter Maryum Ali, one of Ali’s nine children.
