Windsor remarried in 2016 and is survived by her wife, Judith Kasen-Windsor. It's now considered the second most important Supreme Court case for LGBTI rights, following 2015's ruling legalizing marriage equality.
Windsor filed the lawsuit after the death of her first wife, Thea Spyer, saying its definition of marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman prevented her from getting a marital deduction on Spyer's estate, leaving her with a hefty tax bill.
Windsor's resulting lawsuit led to the 2013 Supreme Court decision that granted federal recognition of the term "marriage"-and all the benefits that come with it-only to heterosexual couples, was unconstitutional". Though Windsor and Spyer were married, and Windsor was the executor of Spyer's estate, the federal government imposed a $363,000 estate tax.

In her interview with Metro Weekly, Windsor expressed concern over the appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch, but nonetheless advised present-day activists to "hang in" and stay connected with other members of their community as they fight back against any attempts to erode or overturn policies guaranteeing LGBTQ equality. In lieu of flowers, Windsor had requested that any donations in her memory be made to the NYC LGBT Center, Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, the Hetrick-Martin Institute, and Services & Advocacy for LGBT Elders, or SAGE. The marriage was over within a year, and Windsor moved to NY and eventually became immersed in the gay community. The pair wore broaches in lieu of wedding rings, which would become a trademark of the LGBT rights movement during the litigation which propelled Windsor to prominence. Same-sex marriage became legal in every state the USA in 2015. She became a computer programmer at IBM in 1958.
Windsor met Thea Spyer, at the time already a clinical psychologist, at Greenwich Village restaurant Portofino in 1963. After a wedding in Canada, they were married for less than two. After 1977, when Spyer was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, she led with her good leg, she told the Guardian.
