Anna Gordy Gaye, ex-wife of the late Marvin Gaye and sister of Berry Gordy, dies at 92

By Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 14:28 EST, 31 January 2014 | UPDATED: 14:28 EST, 31 January 2014

Anna Gordy Gaye, the ex-wife late singer Marvin Gaye and older sister of Motown founder Berry Gordy, died Friday in Los Angeles. She was 92.

Anna died at home from natural causes at her home and was discovered at around 3 am, according to TMZ.

Anna co-founded Anna Records in 1958 with her sister Gwen and Billy Davis.

She and Gaye, who was 17 years her junior, met in 1960 and married in 1964.

They had one child together, Marvin Pentz Gaye III, and divorced in 1977. She never remarried.

According to Rolling Stone, Gaye and Anna's rocky marriage was chronicled on his double album Here, My Dear.

Gaye filed for bankruptcy after their divorce a judge instructed Gaye to make good on overdue alimony payments by recording an album and giving his wife $600,000 in royalties.

Anna influenced Gaye's career, co-writing two hits on his What's Going On album and she inspired his hit song Pride and Joy during their courtship.

Anna also co-wrote hits with Gaye for the Motown group The Originals, including Baby, I'm for Real.

He wrote Anna's Song after they split up.

Gaye married his second wife, Janice in 1977 and they had two children, daughter Nona and son Frankie.

He was murdered by his father, who shot him twice in 1984, one day before his 45th birthday.

When Gaye was honored with induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987 and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Anna attended and accepted Gaye's induction, according to The Hollywood Gossip.

Anna made her last appearance with her brother Berry, 84, in 2008 at an event honoring him.

She is survived by her son.

Finally got Anna's official birth date.

Courtesy of what someone posted on Eurweb, she was born on January 28, 1922. So she died 3 days after her birthday.
