A century worth of relationship ended. It is true when they say, 'Nothing Lasts Forever.'
Joan B. Lee, the former British hat model, and the wife of Comic legend, Stan Lee, took her last breath, yesterday. The whole world is in shock after the news of her death got out.
We can't even imagine the amount of pain, Stan is going through after his better half of 69-years, left him alone in the world. Let's find out how it happened and take a small insight of their relationship.
Joan B. Lee-Left The World For Heavens
She suffered a major stroke earlier this week and rushed to the nearest hospital, in order to give her a good treatment. Her family and friends were praying for her health.
But looks like it was time for Joan to start her next journey to the heavens, alone as she peacefully died, whilst surrounded by her family.
The family spokesperson released an official statement which stated,
'I can confirm the sad news that Joan Lee passed away this morning quietly and surrounded by her family.'
The spokesperson also added,
"The family ask that you please give them time to grieve and respect their privacy during this difficult time."
After her tragic passing, it brought an end to her 7-decades of marriage with Stan. Marvel paid tribute to Stan's wife and said,
"We are so saddened to hear about the loss of Joan Lee. We lost a member of the Marvel family today and our thoughts and prayers go out to Stan and his daughter Joan in this difficult time."
Joan and Stan tied the knot on December 5th, 1947, after meeting accidentally on a blind date.
Stan was due to meet another model named, Betty but instead, he laid his eyes on Joan first and he decided that she is the one.
Children Between Them
They were the parents of their two daughters, Joan Celia, born 1950, and Jan Lee, born 1953. Both of them never had any children from their previous relationship.
Although, their second daughter, Jan, died after a mere three days from her birth. It was a devastating blow for the duo but they moved on.
This was the third marriage for Joan as she was previously married to two men. She married an English man but broke up soon after.
After moving to the United States, she married an American officer but that marriage didn't work either.
At this tough time, we hope Stan pulls through and we mourn the loss of the blessed soul, that is Joan.

His daughter, J.C. Lee's attorney Kirk Schenck also confirmed his death. J.C. Lee said in a statement:
"He felt an obligation to his fans to keep creating. He loved his life and he loved what he did for a living. His family loved him and his fans loved him. He was irreplaceable."
Moments after his tragic death, there was an immediate downpouring of gratitude for lee via social media. From actors to directors who worked with him and who has become an inspiration took Twitter to share their views.

You may not have known it, but your stories, editorial notes, letters pages, and Soapboxes that we read growing up became the voice we needed to guide us through life and inspire us to strive to be the heroes that you knew we could be. Rest in peace, Stan Lee, and thank you. pic.twitter.com/NisO7GDAku— Bill Rosemann (@BillRosemann) November 12, 2018
Awww man, heartbreaking. R.I.P. to a true pioneer and legend. My youth wouldn’t have been the same without him. So grateful to have met the guy, and told him how thankful I was for his work. #stanlee https://t.co/UiYscXKoLQ— James Wan (@creepypuppet) November 12, 2018
