Nancy Sinatra Senior has died aged 101, it's been confirmed.
Nancy Snr. was the first wife of swing music legend and actor Frank and mother to his three children.
Bang Bang singer Nancy Sinatra Jr. shared the sad news on Twitter in the early hours of this morning, telling her 186,000 followers: "My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101".
Her daughter, Nancy Sinatra Jr., tweeted that her mother died Friday and a posting on her webpage says she died at 6:02 p.m. but didn't indicate where she died.
Frank and Nancy met in 1934 at the New Jersey holiday resort of Long Branch when he was 19 and she was 17. Frank who passed away on May 14, 1998, from all accounts, took care of Nancy after their divorce for the remainder of her life.
"Godspeed, Momma and than you for everything you did for us and for the world". Frank Jr, also a singer, was born in 1944 and Tina Sinatra was born in 1948. The Sinatras had three children together, all of who would become successful entertainers in their own right.
Frank married Hollywood actress Ava Gardner 10 days after leaving Nancy in 1950.
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.
"There is no bitterness, only great respect and affection between Sinatra and his first wife", Gay Talese wrote in 1966.
