Stan Lee was married to Joan Boocock Lee for over seventy years, until her death two years ago.
She was born in Gosforth in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England, and lived in the nearby coastal town South Shields before moving to America, following her career as a model, and marrying Sanford Wells, before she met Stan Lee, divorced her husband and married Stan hours later.

He gave it a damn good try…
