Barbara Sinatra, the former model, activist and wife of the late singer Frank Sinatra, died Tuesday at her home in Rancho Mirage, California of natural causes. Barbara Sinatra married the iconic singer in 1976 and they were together until his death in 1998. She was Sinatra's fourth wife and had been married twice before herself.

Barbara Sinatra once said of the marriage, "Walter Annenberg was the one that came to me and said well i want you to know I've decided you're good for frank and I think that you should be married. And I said 'Walter, from your mouth to God's ears, yes, you tell him!' and so evidently he did and here we are!"

Barbara Sinatra was 90 years old.
