Barbara Sinatra, the fourth wife of singer Frank Sinatra, died on Tuesday at the age of 90, her representative said.

John Thoresen, director of the Barbara Sinatra Children's Center, told CNN Sinatra died of natural causes.

She is survived by her son Robert Oliver Marx, daughter-in-law Hillary Roberts, and granddaughter Carina Blakeley Marx.

The former Las Vegas showgirl married Sinatra in 1976.

Barbara and Frank's marriage was the longest of the singer's four unions - they Wednesday in 1976 and she remained his wife up until his death in 1998. The Desert Sun reports that Nat King Cole played piano at their wedding.

"Aerial fires resulted in the deaths of the friendly Afghan forces who were gathered in a compound", U.S. forces said. No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks, nor is it known whether any ransom demands have been made.

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.

Together they founded the center that bears her name. "It's something you can't explain why or how it happened".

In her 2011 book, "Lady Blue Eyes: My Life with Frank", Sinatra wrote of first meeting her future husband when she was asked to be a doubles partner with his second wife, Ava Gardner.

The rep told the Desert Sun.

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.
