Probably not die: Face drooping is more commonly caused by bell's palsy than a stroke. Even if due to a stroke, most strokes are not fatal so you would probably be alive years later. But strokes can be fatal ; seeking medical attention immediately can prevent or reverse serious long-lasting neurological deficits. Anyone with face drooping would be wise to see a doctor as soon as possible.
