Our hearts are heavy as we share Justice Mary Fairhurst’s passing last night. She was forever a fighter and was surrounded by loved ones in her last moments. Justice Fairhurst was a partner to KCBA in so many ways and all who knew her share fond memories of her compassion, unmatched kindness, and commitment to helping others.
Her Washington Supreme Court team shared a heartwarming message this morning – please take a few moments to read it here. KCBA member Carolyn Ladd wrote a wonderful tribute to Justice Fairhurst in the December 2019 Bar Bulletin that captures the incredible work Justice Fairhurst did for our legal community.
Justice Fairhurst touched so many lives and it was a true honor to know her, work with her, and today we take a moment to honor her. What better way to do that then to follow her wise words: “Time is precious … let’s not waste the days we have.”
She was a firm believer in miracles and many of you have donned her “Believe in Miracles” bracelets. Her warm spirit continues to live on – rest in power Justice Fairhurst.
