"Godspeed, Momma and thank you for everything you did for us and for the world".

Her daughter calls her "a blessing and the light of my life".

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.

Nancy and Frank married in their teens and had three children together.

In later years she would become known as Nancy Sr, especially after daughter Nancy became a 1960s singing star in her own right with These Boots are Made for Walking and other hit songs. Frank Jr, also a singer, was born in 1944 and Tina Sinatra was born in 1948.

He married actress and Hollywood bombshell, Ava Gardner, just 10 days after his divorce from Nancy Sinatra.

Nancy Sinatra was divorced from her husband after he had a string of affairs.

In December 1963, the Sinatras went through a scare when their 19-year-old son Frank Jr was kidnapped from a Lake Tahoe hotel and held for $240,000 ransom. "I want to feed him".

However, in September, 1950, Nancy was granted a legal separation because of his mental cruelty.

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