When did Sandra Day O'Connor die?
As I write this in December 2015, Justice O'Connor is still very much alive. Born in 1930, she was the first woman named to the US Supreme Court (in 1981), and she served until her retirement in 2006. She still gives occasional interviews on legal matters, and is the founder and an adviser to a non-profit organization that promotes civic participation and an informed electorate, the Sandra Day O'Connor Institute.
