An award-winning journalist who was property editor at a city title for 13 years has lost her battle with cancer at the age of 56.
Marsya Lennox, left, was the property editor at the Birmingham Post where she helped grow the section to become the main platform for the region’s major estate agents.
She was highly regarded by readers and advertisers for her professionalism and writing skills and was named Regional Property Journalist of the Year in 2008.
Marsya was diagnosed with cancer in January this year and died on Thursday surrounded by her family, which includes her journalist husband of 25 years, Tony.
She was born in Edinburgh and attended university in the city, before moving to the Midlands after journalism training to join the Solihull News.
Marsya later worked as a district reporter for the Birmingham Mail before taking time off to raise two sons.
She was involved in the launch of the Chris Bullivant title the Birmingham Press in 2010, which Tony previously edited.
And more recently, Marsya provided property editorial for the Wolverhampton Magazine, launched by the Express & Star in 2011, and Warwickshire Life magazine.
She leaves husband Tony and sons Robert, 25, and Alexander, 22.
