LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Judge Andree Layton Roaf, the first black woman to serve on the Arkansas Supreme Court, died Wednesday after losing consciousness in her Little Rock office. She was 68.

Pulaski County Coroner Garland Camper says Roaf died Wednesday at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Cause of death wasn't immediately known.

Then-Gov. Jim Guy Tucker appointed Roaf to the Arkansas Supreme Court in January 1995. A year later, she was appointed to the state appeals court, where she served until 2006.

She was the mother of retired NFL player Willie Roaf.

How awesome it must be to set a goal and just crush all opposition in your way, every chance given, for a whole career.

Willie was half crippled and fucking completely dominated in his twilight years.

Now you know where he got it from...

Despite reports of her passing from Doctors, Carl Peterson is still holding out hope she'll come out of it.
