Beloved TV Journalist Dies Of Massive Stroke While On Her Way To Stepdad’s Funeral
Award winning TV journalist Amanda Davis died suddenly this Wednesday after suffering a “massive spontaneous stroke” while on her way to her stepdad’s funeral.
The Fox5 Atlanta veteran was getting ready to board a flight to attend the sad event when she suddenly collapsed.
The 62-year-old star had previously opened up about her battles with alcoholism. She had also recently been struggling with the passing of her beloved stepdad.
Following Davis’ death, Fox5 – where she worked as a news anchor for 26 years – said in a statement: “Her family is asking for privacy at this difficult time.”
A close friend and colleague also spoke out after the tragic incident, saying: “Amanda Davis has gone to be with God, leaving us — leaving me — shocked and heartbroken by the suddenness of her passing. Amanda was a person of great faith, a faith that seemed to deepen in recent years as she bravely confronted, and surmounted, challenges made more difficult because they were so public.”
