Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a towering women’s rights champion who became the court’s second female justice, died Sept. 18 at her home in Washington. She was 87.

Ginsburg died of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer, the court said.

Her death just over six weeks before Election Day set off a heated battle over whether President Donald Trump should nominate ― and the Republican-led Senate confirm ― her replacement, or whether the seat should stay vacant until the outcome of Trump’s race against Democrat Joe Biden is known.

Ginsburg’s colleagues on the court penned heartfelt messages of grief, respect and awe for her that also reflected the personal ties between the justices.

“Through the many challenges both professionally and personally, she was the essence of grace, civility and dignity,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote.

Ginsburg announced in July that she was undergoing chemotherapy treatment, the latest of her several battles with cancer.

Ginsburg spent her final years on the bench as the unquestioned leader of the court’s liberal wing and became something of a rock star to her admirers. Young women especially seemed to embrace her, affectionately calling her “the Notorious RBG,” for her defense of the rights of women and minorities, and the strength and resilience she displayed in the face of personal loss and health crises.
