Nancy Sinatra Sr., the first wife of the legendary Rat Pack crooner Frank Sinatra and mother of his three children, died on Friday. She was 101.

 

Her eldest daughter, Nancy Sinatra Jr., confirmed the news on Twitter — writing, “My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101. She was a blessing and the light of my life. 😢💙.”

On her website, Nancy Jr. revealed that her mother died at 6:02 p.m.

“This may be the saddest post I’ve ever had to write,” Nancy Jr. said. “She fought hard to remain on this earth but time got the better of her.”

“Godspeed, Momma and thank you for everything you did for us and for the world,” she added.

Reps for Nancy Jr. did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

@NancySinatra
My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101. She was a blessing and the light of my life. Godspeed, Momma. Thank you for everything. 😢💙

Nancy Sr.’s death comes two decades after the death of “Ol’ Blue Eyes,” who died in 1998 at the age of 82 of a heart attack.

Born Nancy Barbato, she met Frank when they were both teenagers. The pair married in 1939 in Jersey City, New Jersey — Nancy Sr.’s hometown.

They’d live there as newlyweds for years, with Frank working as a singing waiter to get his music career started and Nancy Sr. working as a secretary while raising daughter Nancy Jr., born in 1940, and son Frank Jr., born in 1944.

Eventually, the family would move to Los Angeles, where Frank would find fame on the charts and on the movie screen. Daughter Christina Sinatra, known as Tina, was born in 1948.

But a headline-making extramarital affair drove the couple apart. They divorced in 1951, with Frank famously marrying actress Ava Gardner just weeks after the papers were signed. After that, he’d have marriages to Mia Farrow and Barbara Marx.

At the time of their divorce, Nancy Sr. was 33. She was given custody of their children, their home, a Cadillac and a percentage of his wealth.

She devoted her life to her children, PEOPLE reported in 1986, but made no secret of her desire to reconcile with their father.

Nancy Sr. never remarried, preferring to retain the status of a divorced woman and be Mrs. Nancy Sinatra for life rather than lose the Sinatra name.

“Once you’ve had the best…” she told friends.

Nancy Sr. is survived by Nancy Jr., 78, and Tina, 70. Frank Jr. died of cardiac arrest in 2016 at the age of 72.

Nancy’s daughter, Nancy Jr. is famous for this number.

‘America’s Got Talent’ Fans Are Angry At Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer Pick

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

America’s Got Talent (AGT) is back for season 13 and the audition part of the show is almost over. With 4 of the 5 Golden Buzzer’s used, fans were anxious to see who judge Heidi Klum would pick for her Golden Buzzer choice.

The judges each get a Golden Buzzer pick. This allows the contestant to go right to the live show, bypassing a lot of the competition. Mel B chose 15-year-old singer Amanda Mena, Howie Mandel chose 13-year-old singer Courtney Hadwin, Simon Cowell chose singer and father of six Michael Ketterer and Tyra Banks chose aerial dance group Zurcaroh.

Fans were curious who Heidi Klum would choose with so many talented acts this year. However, many fans were irritated when Heidi chose another young singer. With so many singing competitions out there, America’s Got Talent is one that allows acts of all types, so it is easy to see where fans are coming from.

Makayla Phillips – America's Got Talent

Makayla Phillips proves she's the total package with this Demi Lovato hit.

Posted by America's Got Talent on Tuesday, July 10, 2018

Heidi chose 15-year-old singer Makayla Phillips. She sang Demi Lovato’s “Warrior” and brought all of the judges and the crowd to their feet. It is no debate that Makayla is very talented, but do you think some of the Golden Buzzers should have gone to other acts for a more diverse competition?

Fans watching the show quickly went to social media to express their feelings. Here are some of the tweets from fans after watching the last Golden Buzzer pick go to another singer:

Oh look. Another #GoldenBuzzer, another singer. 🙄🙄🙄 there is so much talent on this show that ISN’T singing. Why isn’t that being rewarded? Someone give a comedian the GB. #AGT

— Liz L. 🇫🇷 (@lizzybeth_rose) July 11, 2018

Does anyone else get annoyed that @AGT always ends with a singer and that almost all the #GoldenBuzzer winners are singers?

— Matthew Fink (@matthew_phynque) July 11, 2018

Ok #AGT there are amazing acts, but why did all 4 of the #GoldenBuzzer acts have to be singers? I’m a music educator that loves a good singer, but for real?

— Jeff Frankenstein (@jhf621) July 11, 2018

What do you think? Are you happy with the judges Golden Buzzer picks or do you think there should be more variety?

There's more in the air than just confetti. ✨

Here's to the moments we live for. pic.twitter.com/HvifVQP087

Student Orders KFC Just So Delivery Driver Can Kill A Spider For Her

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Demi Sweeney, a 22-year-old criminology student in Bournemouth, England said her spider phobia went to a whole other level on May 30, 2018.

She woke up at 10 A.M. to an empty house. Her housemates were all away when she spotted a huge spider. Sweeney said that because of the spider’s placement, she was scared it would drop on her. She asked friends and family for advice.

One friend had a genius idea. They suggested she order food and ask the delivery driver to get rid of the spider for her. She opened up the Deliveroo app and started ordering from KFC.

My fear of spiders was taken to a whole new level today in which I ordered food in a hope that the delivery driver would remove the spider..

Joe @Deliveroo @DeliverooHelp you are an actual LIFESAVER 🙌🏼 pic.twitter.com/YnkQhqhhWW

— Demi (@demiswn) May 30, 2018

She considered that the delivery driver may not be able to enter her home for safety reasons and she did not want to order food for no reason. She sent Deliveroo a private message on Twitter asking if this whole idea was a possibility.

They responded quickly and said if the driver wasn’t scared of spiders also, they were allowed to help out. She ordered her KFC and accidentally ordered two meals. She put a message in the notes section asking if they would remove the spider for her.

About 20 minutes later, the delivery driver arrived. Sweeney ran down to the door, past the spider, holding a roll of tissue paper. She asked if he had seen her note.

He said he had seen the note but laughed and said he was afraid of spiders as well. She begged and he decided to help her out even though he was nervous as well. He asked how big it was and where it was. He reached for the spider, causing it to drop on the floor, which made Sweeney panic. Finally, he caught the spider and flushed it for her.

Sweeney said she was afraid to use the toilet the rest of the day.

She tweeted that he was a real-life hero and wanted to hug him for removing the spider for her. She said she thanked him about 50 times and he just kept laughing.

Deliveroo replied that they were happy to see that Joe, the delivery driver was able to help and would give him a reward for his extra efforts.
