Roger Ebert & Chaz Ebert
Ebert married Chaz Hammelsmith, a trial attorney, in July 1992.
After a long battle with cancer, the film critic, 70, passed away yesterday.

When renowned film critic Roger Ebert passed away yesterday, April 4, just one day after his 46th anniversary of reviewing films, he left a long and respected legacy of sharp and eloquent movie critiques. He also left a steadfast and admirable 20 year marriage to his wife, Chaz.

In 2010, after an already lengthy battle with cancer that ultimately robbed him of the ability to speak, Ebert told People about his loyal wife, "When I was essentially helpless, she was my tireless advocate. She's my angel." He continued, "Chaz and I have drawn so close through all of this. She's the most positive force in my life, and I am the luckiest man because of her."

Upon Ebert's death, his wife said, "I've lost the love of my life … We had a lovely, lovely life together, more beautiful and epic than a movie. It had its highs and the lows, but was always experienced with good humor, grace and a deep abiding love for each other."
