In October, Starr received Lasik surgery for her vision and was out of work for several weeks, according to her Facebook page. She posted about dealing with dry eye and her frustration with recovery.

Starr's last tweet was from Nov. 14, reading in part, "Yesterday was a struggle for me. I really wanted to come back but need more time to recover. Please keep me in your thoughts during this challenging time."

Starr had been with Fox 2 Detroit since 2012.

She began her career at WLNS-TV (Channel 6) in Lansing, Michigan, as the weekend meteorologist. She came to Fox 2 after four years covering weather and community events for WBFF-TV (FOX 45) in Baltimore.

Starr was a Michigan native, born in Southfield and raised in Commerce Township, according to her Fox 2 biography. She earned meteorology degrees from Michigan State University and Mississippi State University.
