Members of the WFMJ family are saddened to report that former news anchor Laura Steele has passed away.

Laura died Friday morning in Canton, Ohio at the age of 46.

Ms. Steele was a co-anchor on the 21 News 6 and 11 p.m. broadcasts from 1998 until 2004, before moving on to WGRZ Television in Buffalo, New York, where she anchored the news.

She is a graduate of Chippewa High School and attended Malone University in Canton.

Laura still has many friends here in the Valley who remember her fondly as someone who loved animals and enjoyed baking.

She will be missed.

Arrangements are still being finalized by Zak-Thacker & Monbarren Funeral Home in her home town of Doylestown, Ohio.
