Edie Windsor

NGLCC Remembers Edie Windsor

NGLCC mourns the loss of Edie Windsor, who paved the way for marriage equality in the United States. Edie was known for her smile, her laugh, her exceptional mathematics skills that she expressed during her years at NGLCC founding partner IBM, and her innate ability to melt your heart with stories of her life. That was especially true when talking about her more than forty year love affair with Thea Spyer. 
We will miss you, Edie. But your memory and your legacy live in the hearts of everyone in the NGLCC family.

A public Memorial for Edie Windsor will be held on Friday, September 15, 2017 at 12:30 p.m. at Temple Emanuel, 1 East 65th Street, New York, NY 10065.
