She's pretty iconic and until today, we didn't even know her name.

The nurse famously photographed in the VJ Day picture being kissed in New York's Times Square when World War II ended, died this week at the age of 91.

Edith Shain passed at her home in El Lay on Sunday and leaves behind three sons, six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Sad, but at least she could say she live a full and happy life. Plus, there is a little piece of her that will forever live on in history, which should be really cool for all those grand kids of hers.

Our condolences to her family.
