The Hearns were married for 64 years until Chick died in 2002. It was a sad day for the Lakers, and the team's president Jeannie Buss released a statement about her.
"We are very sad at the passing of our beloved Marge Hearn," the statement said. "We consider ourselves blessed and fortunate, however, to have had her be a part of the Lakers family for six decades. She was truly the First Lady of the Lakers, sitting alongside her husband, the voice of the Lakers, Chick Hearn."
