Shain died Sunday at her Los Angeles home, her family announced Tuesday on her website. She was a registered nurse, kindergarten teacher and public access cable television producer who became famous late in life once her identity in the photo was revealed. She participated in ceremonies on the 50th and 60th anniversaries of V-J Day in 1995 and 2005.
Her son Michael Shain described Eisenstaedt’s photo as having captured “an epic moment in American history, one that inspired patriotism, unity, joy and a spontaneous national pride in victoriously ending the war.”
Shain is survived by three sons, six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
