Delores Hope, the wife of late entertainer Bob Hope, died at the age of 102 on Monday, RadarOnline.com has learned.

After marrying in 1934, the couple's relationship developed into a legendary Hollywood marriage until Bob's death in 2003, at age 100.

Born Delores DeFina in the Bronx, New York, she was a regular sight by her husband's side during World War II as he traveled to overseas in tours entertaining U.S. troops.
