A posting on Nancy Sinatra Jr.'s website said her mother died at 6:02 p.m. on Friday.

Nancy Barbato and Frank Sinatra were high school sweethearts.

Nancy Sinatra Senior has passed away aged 101.

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

Frank and the former Nancy Barbato were New Jersey natives and married from 1939-1951.

She later added: 'Godspeed, Momma and thank you for everything you did for us and for the world, ' alongside a fitting tribute, a link to Frank's hit She's Funny That Way.

They began their marriage living in a modest apartment in Jersey City, where their two eldest children, Nancy Sinatra Jr. and Frank Sinatra Jr., were born. Nancy worked as a secretary while Frank worked as both a singer and a waiter.

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 and notorious womanizer.

Daughter Tina later commented on their relationship, writing in her book My Father's Daughter: A Memoir: "It would take him two years to ask Mom for a divorce, and they were two of the roughest, most insecure years of Dad's life".

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

Their children Frank Sinatra Jr. and Nancy Sinatra Jr. went on to embark singing careers of their own while their youngest Tina Sinatra went on to work in film and production. She and Frank had been married for 22 years at the time of his passing in 1998.

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