BEIJING, Sept. 20 (Xinhuanet) -- Dolores Hope, the songstress who married to late entertainer Bob Hope, died on Monday of natural causes at the age of 102, according to media reports on Tuesday.

Hope passed away in the Toluca Lake area of Los Angeles, said spokesman Harlan Boll.

Dolores Hope put her singing career on hold after she got married and the couple raised four children.

Dolores Hope often accompanied her husband, who died at age 100 on July 27, 2003, on his many visits to entertain U.S. troops overseas.

At age 84, she accompanied Bob on his last Christmas visit to American forces during the 1991 Gulf War, when she performed "White Christmas" from the back of a truck in the Saudi desert.

Like her husband, Delores Hope was a keen golfer and received multiple awards for her humanitarian work.
