Sandra Day O'Connor, former Supreme Court Justice, dead at 93

Retired Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, has died, the high court announced. She was 93.

O'Connor died Friday morning in Phoenix, Arizona, of complications related to advanced dementia, probably Alzheimer's, and a respiratory illness, the Supreme Court said in a news release.

She is remembered as a history-making woman, a Westerner, pragmatic conservative, keen legal mind and beloved mother and grandmother.

"We all bring with us to the Court or to any task we undertake, our own lifetime of experiences and background," O'Connor told Fox News in a 2003 interview. "My perceptions might be different than some of my colleagues, but at the end of the day, we ought to all be able to agree on some sensible solutions to the problem."

Coincidence and old age. That's just my crazy, off the wall assumption.
