  • Nancy Sinatra passed away Friday at the age of 101 her daughter said

Breaking the news on Twitter, Nancy Jr., wrote: 'My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101.

"She was a blessing and the light of my life", her daughter said.

Nancy Barbato and Frank Sinatra were high school sweethearts. Frank and Nancy married in February 1939, before his singing career took off.

When Sinatra shot to fame in the 1940s, the couple relocated to Los Angeles, where their youngest daughter Tina Sinatra was born.

Frank Sinatra left his Nancy for Ava Gardner in the early 1950s.

They were divorced in 1951, just weeks before he married Ava.

Frank Sinatra was a little-known jazz singer who worked as a lifeguard when he met Nancy Barbato in the mid-1930s. "She would never show it in front of us, never, but my room was next to hers and I would tiptoe out and I'd listen at the door and she'd be crying".

When police showed up at the residence, the suspect opened fire at the officers, and the officers returned fire. He also spent a year playing for Anadolu Efes , a Turkish squad, before returning to Khimki in 2017.

Nancy devoted herself to family and friends and withdrew from the showbusiness spotlight after her divorce from Sinatra.

Nancy, who was born in 1917, was the first of Frank's four wives.

Frank went on to Wednesday actress Mia Farrow and Barbara Marx before his fatal heart attack at the age of 82.

After he divorced Gardner, Sinatra went on to marry Mia Farrow and then Barbara Marx.

In later years she would become known as Nancy Sr., especially after daughter Nancy became a 1960s singing star in her own right with "These Boots Are Made For Walking" and other hit songs. Frank frequently requested food from her, foods she was known for being an expert at preparing, including Italian dishes.

"There is no bitterness, only great respect and affection between Sinatra and his first wife", Gay Talese wrote in 1966, "and he has always been welcome in her home and has even been known to wander in at odd hours, stoke the fire, lie on the sofa, and fall asleep".
