Marsh died at her home in Connecticut of breast cancer on Wednesday at the age of 63.

She was part of a wave of women news anchors in New York City back when there weren't a lot of them.

Michele Marsh, at the age of just 25, was the youngest.

Wednesday, at just 63, she died at her home in Connecticut of breast cancer.

Marsh became a household name and face for more than 20 years at two of the biggest TV stations in New York: WCBS and WNBC.

We are thinking of our colleagues there, and of her family who will miss her kindness and compassion.

She touched so many New Yorkers.
