September 21, 2020
The country lost a cultural icon recently with the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Ginsburg succumbed to complications due to pancreatic cancer at age 87. She died in her Washington, D.C. home, surrounded by her loved ones. She leaves behind two children, Jane C. Ginsburg and James S. Ginsburg.
Ginsburg served a total of 27 years as a Supreme Court Judge. She was the second woman in history to be confirmed as a Justice. During her time, Ginsburg was a staunch advocate for women’s rights and gay rights.
The court, in a statement, said Ginsburg died at her home in Washington, D.C., surrounded by family. She was 87.
“Our nation has lost a justice of historic stature,” Chief Justice John Roberts said. “We at the Supreme Court have lost a cherished colleague. Today we mourn but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her, a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”
