I don't know if there is a specific life of a water pump, but the water pump on my car (see my signature, same engine as yours) went out earlier this year, and in fact, I had forgotten, but that is exactly how it went out.

I was loosing coolant, couldn't find a leak, but I finally noticed it leaking when I let it idle in my driveway. It was the water pump leaking.
