Nancy Sinatra Sr., the childhood sweetheart of Frank Sinatra who became the first of his four wives and the mother of his three children, has died. She was 101.

Her daughter, Nancy Sinatra Jr., tweeted that her mother died on Friday and a posting on her webpage says she died at 6:02 pm but didn't indicate where she died.

Frank and Nancy Sinatra had been teenage sweethearts. They married in New Jersey, in February 1939, just as Frank's singing career was about to take off.

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 and raconteur.
