Martha Levert, mother of Gerald and Sean Levert, dies

(January 3, 2020) The Leverts have certainly gone through some tragedies over the past fifteen years. And now another sad death in the family has been reported, as Martha Levert, the mother of singers Gerald and Sean Levert and the former wife of O’Jays singer Eddie Levert, has reportedly died. The news came via an Instagram post from Martha Levert's granddaughter, Carlysia Levert.

Martha and Eddie Levert were married in 1966. Together they had sons Eddie and Sean, and daughter Kandice. Martha was described in Eddie Levert’s book with Gerald, I Got Your Back, in the following way: “She’s petite, and soft, and exudes the spirit and resilience of a woman six feet tall.” She and Eddie later divorced and he remarried, wedding Raquel Capelton.

Martha faced every parent’s worst nightmare more than a decade ago, losing son Gerald in 2006 and Sean in 2008, but continued to be a powerful mother and grandmother.
