Saturday, July 14, 2018

Nancy Sinatra Sr., the first wife of legendary crooner Frank Sinatra and mother of singers Nancy Sinatra and Frank Sinatra Jr. and singer and film producer Tina Sinatra, has died. She was 101.

Her daughter, Nancy Sinatra, broke the news on Twitter Friday night, calling her mother “a blessing and the light of my life.”

Born Nancy Barbato in 1917 in Jersey City, New Jersey, she met Frank Sinatra when they were teenagers, and they married in 1939. Daughter Nancy was born a year later. Frank Jr. was born in 1944, and Tina Sinatra was born in 1948.
