We will miss her smile and her humor. Marcia Kat Tracked with us to Paris, Tuscany and twice to Australia. My heart is heavy.
Marcia G. Cooke, the first Black woman to serve as a federal judge in Florida history, died Friday after an 18-year career on the bench in Miami.
Cooke, 68, struggled for months with inoperable cancer after she had been admitted last June to Mount Sinai Hospital and underwent surgery for a pulmonary embolism after a trip to Australia with friends, according to people close to her. She then stepped down from the federal bench in the Southern District of Florida before spending her final weeks in her hometown of Detroit with family.
Good morning my condolences to you & her family. 🙏🏽
