Frank Sinatra’s First Wife, Nancy Sr., Has Died At 101

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

"She was a blessing and the light of my life", her daughter said. Frank married Gardner, while Nancy went on to raise their children, Nancy, Frank Junior, and Tina.

Her death comes two decades after her husband's, who died of a heart attack in 1998 at the age of 82.

"My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101", Sinatra's daughter, also named Nancy, tweeted today.

Frank admitted, when questioned by Nancy, that he had been involved with another woman, but he insisted there would be no more and the pair got married.

"She fought hard to remain on this earth but time got the better of her", she wrote, adding that her mother passed "peacefully".

One such extramarital romance was with actress Ava Gardner, whom he married just days after signing divorce papers with Nancy.

Born Nancy Barbato on March 25, 1917 in Jersey City, she met her future husband in the summer of 1934, while they were holidaying with their families on the Jersey Shore. For a time she was employed as a secretary while her husband worked as a singing waiter. The couple had three children together as Frank rose to fame and fortune with his music.

When they first tied the knot, the couple lived in a small apartment in Jersey City, where their two oldest children were born.

Nancy Sinatra Sr is predeceased by her son, singer Frank Jr, who died in 2016 at the age of 72.

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

The Sinatras separated in 1950 and their divorce was finalised in 1951. "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".

Sinatra's hit song, "She's Funny That Way", plays in the background.
