Alison Howe was at the Manchester Arena with a friend to pick up their daughters when she was killed by the blast.
Her husband, Steve Howe, told ITV that his daughter, Darcy, called after the explosion, saying her mother wouldn't answer her phone.
Howe called his wife and then a friend who worked at the arena. He said he had hoped his wife was unable to answer her phone because she was unconscious. Howe and her friend Lisa Lees were killed.
"I can't describe the pain. And I'm not a weak man. We are broken in half," Steve Howe told ITV. "I've still got enough in me to try to do something about this if other people will help me."
ITV reported that Howe's son Jason called his stepmother caring and beautiful.
"She was amazing to us all," Jason Howe said.
