Joanne Siegel 1917-2011

Joanne Siegel, widow of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel and inspiration for Lois Lane has passed away at the age of 93. She worked endlessly to preserve the legacy of the Superman creators and in 2008 helped win a court ruling giving the Siegel estate, the Shuster estate and DC Comics shared ownership in Superman but the details are still being sorted out.
