On Friday, former Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O'Connor passed away at the age of 93 due to "complications related to advanced dementia" and a respiratory illness.

O'Connor, the first woman to sit on the highest court in the land, was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, and served until 2006.

According to CNN, O'Connor revealed in 2018 that she had been diagnosed with dementia, saying, "while the final chapter of my life with dementia may be trying, nothing has diminished my gratitude and deep appreciation for the countless blessings of my life."

She was described by Reagan as "truly a person for all seasons, possessing those unique qualities of temperament, fairness, intellectual capacity, and devotion to the public good which have characterized the 101 brethren who have preceded her."

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
