She met him while teaching English to the spindly Italian immigrant in a Nazareth, Pa. school and a few months later Dee Ann Hoch became Mrs. Mario Andretti in November of 1961.

And for the better part of the six decades Dee Ann Andretti raised their three children, tried to maintain some small-town normalcy and stayed in the background while her globe-trotting husband became one of the world’s most famous and successful race drivers of all time.

Dee Ann passed away Tuesday morning at the age of 76, after suffering a massive heart attack a few weeks ago and never regaining consciousness. Grandson Marco confirmed the news via Twitter:

RIP Dee Ann. I'm sure Mario - one of the greatest racers ever to walk this Earth - is devastated.
