Lady Susie Moss, the widow of legendary British racing driver Sir Stirling Moss, has passed away at the age of 69 after a prolonged period of ill health.
Her older sister, Tina, stated that Lady Susie’s grief over Sir Stirling’s death, which occurred just three years ago when he was 90, was so profound that it contributed to her sister’s untimely death.
Tina, who is married to retail magnate Sir Philip Green, revealed that her sister and Sir Stirling’s love story was one of the best she had ever known.
Despite the age difference, with Sir Stirling having an undiminished appetite for beautiful women, their marriage was intensely happy.
Their love story lasted nearly four decades, a stark contrast to Sir Stirling’s previous two failed marriages, each of which lasted only a few years.
Lady Susie remained confident despite the attention her husband always received from women, and their union was blessed with the birth of their only son, Elliot, a few months after their marriage in 1980.
The couple lived in Mayfair, near a posh private club, and in a house that Sir Stirling designed and outfitted with a wealth of gadgets.
Lady Susie continued to live in the same house after Sir Stirling’s death, sleeping close to the urn that contained his ashes.
Lady Susie’s sister, Lady Green, mourned her sister’s untimely death and stated that she would be greatly missed.
The couple’s love story was a testament to the fact that true love has no age or other limits.
Despite the grief Lady Susie experienced after Sir Stirling’s death, she will be remembered for her unwavering love for her husband, which lasted until her very last breath.
