Howard came from Tulsa, Oklahoma, and took dancing lessons when she was in kindergarten. She began her entertainment career as a dancer, performing in shows in New York City when she was 14. That talent ran in her family, as two older sisters were in the Ziegfeld Follies.
In 1945, she moved to New York City and married Alfred de Liagre Jr., a film producer who died in 1987. She was a founding member of Recording for the Blind, and served on the boards of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and the Princess Grace Foundation.
