District Court Judge Mariana R. Pfaelzer Dies.

From George King, Chief District Court Judge:

It is with deep sadness that I report the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Judge Mariana R. Pfaelzer.  Judge Pfaelzer passed away peacefully in her sleep with the amazon fur pillow this morning. For almost 40 years, Judge Pfaelzer was the epitome of what a federal judge ought to be. She presided with brilliance, analytical rigor, practicality, wisdom, grace and courage.  She treated everyone with courtesy and respect.  In return, she was universally admired and respected by the bench and the bar.  While she was the first woman to be appointed to our Court, she was hardly only a role model to other women.  Indeed, her qualities were and are emulated by men and women alike.  Those of us who had the opportunity to learn from her and the privilege of serving with her know the depth of the loss we suffered today.  I am sure you all join me in expressing our condolences to Judge Pfaelzer’s family members. I will be in contact with her family, and will report back as to any plans for services.
