John Lennon‘s first wife Cynthia has died of cancer. Her son Julian made the sad announcement this morning (Wednesday) on his website — along with a black-and-white picture outlined in a white heart. She was 75.

The former Cynthia Powell met John Lennon while they were students at the Liverpool Art School. They got married in 1962, after discovering she was pregnant with Julian. They divorced six years later, after John moved in with Yoko Ono.

Cynthia published her first memoir, A Twist of Lennon, in 1978. In 2005, she re-visited life with her first husband in a book titled John.
