    *She had been ill the last several days, but unfortunately Jeanne Gay, 87, the eldest sister of the legendary Marvin Gaye, passed away Tuesday morning [[03/23/21) at 5:15am at St. Rose Dominican Siena Hospital in Henderson Nevada, according to her now her now only surviving sibling, Zeola Gaye who remembers her big sis this way:

    “I will miss my only sister so very much, Jeanne was the glue that kept us together. I remember so well how she and Marvin would compete with each other in everything, in most cases Marvin would win… Jeanne– sometimes. Jeanne who decided not to add an “e” to our last name Gaye was so very funny.. we all were her smile said so very much like all of ours. I call it the famous Gaye smile. Jeanne will be missed by us all, especially her two daughters, Angela and Donna Houston. Saying farewell to my only sister, who now will join the rest of my beloved family.. Mom, Marvin, Frankie and Mike. Rest always in the arms of our Heavenly Father, sis.

    She wasn't 87. They must've been mistaken her for Michael Cooper, who would've turned 87 last year.

    Jeanne Gay was born in 1937, two years before Marvin. So she would've been either 84 or 83 when she died.

    It would be interesting to see her published [if it was] obituary. Many times stars and their immediate families refrain from publishing an obituary. Now if only Marv2 were here; he would have all the details. I really miss his being on top of things.
