Anna Gordy Gaye, who was married to musical great Marvin Gaye and whose brother founded Motown Records, died Jan. 31 at her home in Los Angeles. She was 92.
The family confirmed her death in a statement. The cause was not disclosed.
Ms. Gordy Gaye’s brother, Berry Gordy, founded the record label in Detroit with a family loan in 1959. He named one Motown subsidiary after his sister — and it was on that subsidiary, Anna, that Marvin Gaye recorded his early work.
He and Ms. Gordy Gaye were married in 1963, when she was 41 and he was 24. She was reportedly the inspiration for the singer’s first Top 10 hit, “Pride and Joy,” in 1963. She contributed two songs to Gaye’s celebrated 1971 album, “What’s Going On.”
They co-wrote several songs before their divorce in 1976. They had one son, Marvin Gaye III, born in 1966.
Marvin Gaye was shot to death in 1984 during an argument with his father.
Ms. Gordy Gaye’s survivors include Berry Gordy and another brother.
