Nancy Sinatra Sr dies in USA aged 101

2007 Frank Sinatra Jr. talks to CNN

Childhood sweetheart of legendary 20th-century singer and actor was the mother of his three children.

Nancy Sinatra Senior, Frank Sinatra's first wife and mother of his three children, has died in the USA at the age of 101.

"My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101", the younger Nancy Sinatra, 78, wrote on her official Twitter account.

"She was a blessing and the light of my life".

"Godspeed, Momma and than you for everything you did for us and for the world".

Born Nancy Barbato, the first of Frank's first wives met the singer back in 1934 at the New Jersey holiday resort of Long Branch, and just months later they were engaged. They had three children together: Nancy Jr, Frank Jr and Tina.

However, in September, 1950, Nancy was granted a legal separation because of his mental cruelty.

Nancy Sinatra never remarried and lived a quiet life in Beverly Hills, California, focusing on charity work, the newspaper said.

After the gossip over the divorce and Gardner marriage died down, Nancy Sinatra devoted herself to family and numerous celebrity friends, largely withdrawing from the spotlight.

She is thought to have remained friends with her ex-husband up until his death and he would reportedly put in requests for various Italian dishes she was a expert in over the years.

That latter accomplishment led Sinatra to leave him after an affair with actress Ava Gardner became public knowledge.
