  • They did it their way Barbara Sinatra died on Tuesday at the age of 90 at her house in California here she is seen with Frank Sinatra in 1990

Barbara and Frank Sinatra were Wednesday on July 11, 1976, and they remained married until Frank's death on May 14, 1998.

John Thoresen, director of the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center, told CNN Sinatra died of natural causes. In March, KESQ reported that the Center had raised $250,000 in conjunction with Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Barbara is survived by her son Robert.

Barbara met Frank when he was living next door to the married couple, and they became friends during the tail end of his tempestuous relationship with Ava Gardner, even playing couple's tennis together.

A major plot point of the film would see T'Challa still mourning the loss of his father, and how he must learn to be king. Also with T'Challa is Okoye. "It begins with T'Challa walking through a metal detector and into a casino/nightclub".

"I've tried to analyze it", Barbara told The Desert Sun. Barbara eventually divorced Marx and married Frank Sinatra in Rancho Mirage in 1976. "I think it's because we were friends before anything romantic happened". She was born Barbara Blakeley in Bosworth Missouri in 1927.

She made a name for herself as an advocate for victims of child abuse, building up her foundation with Frank's help.

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.

As well as being a professional model, Barbara was an activist on behalf of abused children and worked with her late husband to raise money to found a facility to provide counselling and other services to youths suffering from physical, sexual, and emotional trauma.
