Hollywood actress Patrice Wymore Flynn, widow of Errol Flynn, dies aged 87

Patrice Wymore Flynn, a Hollywood actress and cattle rancher who was the widow of swashbuckling screen legend Errol Flynn, has died at her seaside home in Jamaica aged 87.

Wymore Flynn died on Saturday at her home in Jamaica's Portland parish after battling pulmonary disease, family spokesman Robb Callahan said.

During her film career, she worked alongside actors such as Doris Day, Kirk Douglas and Randolph Scott. She played Frank Sinatra's girlfriend in the original Ocean's 11 in 1960.

The Kansas-born actress met her future husband when she was cast as the female lead in the 1950 western Rocky Mountain. They spent much of their nine-year marriage in Jamaica. Flynn died in 1959.

For decades, Wymore Flynn lived on the 2,000-acre Errol Flynn Estates cattle ranch in Jamaica.
