Frank married Gardner, while Nancy went on to raise their children, Nancy, Frank Junior, and Tina.

But the pair remained close until Frank Sinatra's death in 1998 at the age of 82, after a heart attack, the newspaper reported.

The announcement was made by Nancy Sinatra Jr who wrote on her website that her mother had died at 6:02 pm on Friday but did not say where.

Nancy later shared a link to Frank Sinatra's She's Funny That Way.

"My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101".

But in September 1950 Nancy was granted a legal separation because of his mental cruelty and an affair with actress Ava Gardner, who he later married.

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.

After their 1939 marriage, Frank and Nancy lived in an apartment in Jersey City, N.J., her hometown. Daughter Nancy Sinatra remembered how hard the divorce was on her mother.

The marriage came just as Frank Sinatra's singing career was starting to take off. "Godspeed, Momma", Nancy - famed for her song These Boots Were Made For Walkin' - tweeted.

After Sinatra became a pop-music sensation in the 1940s, the couple moved to Los Angeles, where the singer would also become a movie star, raconteur, man about town and notorious womanizer.

After he divorced Gardner, Sinatra went on to marry Mia Farrow and then Barbara Marx. Frank frequently requested food from her, foods she was known for being an expert at preparing, including Italian dishes.

She never remarried, and devoted her life to charity and her family, her daughter said.

Gay Talese, in 1966, wrote there was "no bitterness", and instead, only "great respect and affection" between Frank and Nancy.
