Barbara Sinatra, the fourth wife of legendary singer Frank Sinatra and a prominent children's advocate and philanthropist who raised millions of dollars to help abused children, died Tuesday at 90.

Having a famous spouse wasn't unusual for her, as Barbara Sinatra's first marriage was to one of the Marx Brothers, Zeppo. They were married for over 20 years before Frank's death in 1998.

The former model, who gained prominence as "Lady Blue Eyes", passed away this morning at her California home.
