Judge Ruth Ginsburg was buried at Arlington national cemetery

Ginsburg died on September 18 from pancreatic cancer.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was buried early Tuesday in a private ceremony held at Arlington national cemetery, near Washington.

Ruth Ginsburg, the widow of US Army veteran Martin Ginsburg, who died in 2010, was buried with honors given to military dependents. Her coffin was carried to the burial site by an army escort, CNN reports. The judge was buried next to her husband.

Ginsburg’s farewell ceremony began last week at the Supreme Court on Wednesday, and her coffin was delivered to the US Capitol on Friday.

She died on September 18 at the age of 87 from metastatic pancreatic cancer. Ruth Ginsburg served on the country’s highest court for 27 years.

On September 26, President Donald Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett, a member of the US Court of Appeals for the seventh circuit, to replace Ginsburg. The Senate must first approve her candidacy.
