TV anchor Amanda Davis has died at the age of 62 after suffering a stroke.

She was waiting to board her flight at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, to head to his Texas funeral when she had the stroke Wednesday.

Davis had been with CBS 46, which is an affiliate station of Inside Edition, since January after retiring from Fox station WAGA in 2012 following a DUI-related arrest.

Davis had been a television staple in the city for more than 30 years, serving as a morning anchor at CBS46 News after spending 26 years at WAGA. Wednesday was the day her stepfather's funeral was scheduled to take place.

Davis was at the airport because she was "headed to San Antonio following the death of her father, when the medical episode happened", according to 9News.

"Her family is asking for privacy at this hard time".

Just last week she shared a photo on Twitter of a bouquet of flowers she had been sent in the wake of her stepfather's death. Amanda attended Clark College in Atlanta and graduated Magna Cum Laude. She wrote on Facebook on Christmas Eve about how hard it is to get through the holidays after losing a loved one saying, "Stay strong, keep praising the Lord".

Amanda Davis won an Emmy for her journalism skill. Colleagues expressed sadness about the news on Twitter. She became a main anchor five years later, according to FOX5, but retired from the station in 2013. "Amanda Davis persevered through it all, despite the dark time she knew her objective and it was her passion".
