The couple was married for 69 years and would have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in December.
“I can confirm the sad news that Joan Lee passed away this morning quietly and surrounded by her family,” the Leefamily spokesperson told THR. “The family ask that you please give them time to grieve and respect their privacy during this difficult time.”
Joan died on Thursday (July 6) in Los Angeles after reportedly suffering a stroke earlier in the week. She is survived by her husband Stan and their daughter Joan Celia. They had another daughter, Jan, who died three days after she was born in 1953.
You can see Stan making a cameo appearance in the new movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, in theaters this weekend.
