Barbara Sinatra Dies At Age 90

Barbara Sinatra, philanthropist and the widow of Frank Sinatra, has died at 90 in her home in California.

She had been ill for months and died comfortably surrounded by her family and friends at home, a director of one of her charitable foundations said.

Sinatra is survived by her son Oliver Marx and granddaughter Carina Blakeley Marx. Barbara eventually divorced Marx and married Frank Sinatra in Rancho Mirage in 1976.

Barbara, who was Frank's longest-lasting marriage, was an American model and showgirl when she met Sinatra.

Together they founded the center that bears her name.

Mrs Sinatra was Frank Sinatra's wife for more than 22 years and was his final wife before he died in 1998 from a heart attack. "I think it's because we were friends before anything romantic happened".

Socialite Barbara previously admitted she was unsure why Frank wanted to be with her instead of another star like his former spouses, Ava Gardner and Mia Farrow.

"Barbara started raising funds for [the center] in 1985 with Frank's support", Thoresen told The Desert Sun.

Sinatra talked to the New York Times in 2011 about her superstar husband remaining on friendly terms with his ex-wives, which she said didn't bother her.

The Barbara Sinatra Children's Center Foundation provided counseling to child abuse victims, among other services.
