LOS ANGELES --Dolores Hope, the sultry-voiced songstress who was married to Bob Hope for 69 years and sometimes sang on his shows for U.S. troops and on his television specials, has died at age 102.

Hope family spokesman Harlan Boll said Hope died Monday of natural causes at home in Los Angeles. He did not elaborate.

"Both the entertainment world and the church have lost a woman of profound faith, gifted musical talent and dedication," said Los Angeles Archbishop Jose H. Gomez. "The death of Dolores Hope leaves a huge void in Southern California."

Bob Hope died at age 100 on July 27, 2003.

At her 100th birthday party, Dolores Hope appeared little changed: Her white hair was richly coiffed, her skin smooth and her voice deep and warm. She was brought to the party in a wheelchair but was alert and happy as she greeted old friends and posed for photographs.

Hope mused, "I thought it was going to be just another birthday."

Mrs. Hope waited backstage, as Mr. Hope was wrapping up his show at the "Ottawa Exhibition".
I was in Boy Scouts and we were assembled for some show ending ensemble...and Mrs. Hope was watching us gather, as Mr. hope was finishing his smash performance.
Mrs. Hope walked over and in a most charming and sweet way said "are all you Ottawa Scouts this sharp?".....
Talk about kind.
She was BEAUTIFUL - God REST a true Lady.
