Anna Gordy Gaye Deceased At 92

According to TMZ reports:

Anna Gordy Gaye — Marvin Gaye’s ex-wife and older sister to Motown founder Berry Gordy — died early this morning in Los Angeles … TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the family tell us Anna died at home from natural causes. Family members discovered she had died around 3AM.

Anna and Marvin got married in 1964, and she was a huge influence on his career. She co-composed two hits on his classic “What’s Going On” album.

Marvin said his hit song “Pride and Joy” was inspired by his courtship of Anna back in the early 60s.

They had one child together — Marvin Gaye III — and eventually divorced in 1977. While they were estranged … Marvin wrote “Anna’s Song.” It was released in 1978.

Sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to the Gordy’s, the Gaye’s, and all of Anna’s family and friends.
