Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies at age 87 this past Friday, Sept 18. She served as a Justice on the Supreme Court. Her death was caused by issues while she was fighting metastatic cancer in her pancreas. She passed away surrounded by her loved ones.

"I would like to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability."
May she rest in peace.
