Kathleen Mauchly Antonelli, the wife of John W. Mauchly of Eniac and
Univac fame, and a renowned programmer and computer pioneer in her own
right, died at age 85.  The Philadelphia Inquirer has a full obituary in
the 4/25 edition:

Kathleen Antonelli, 85, computer pioneer
By Sally A. Downey
Inquirer Staff Writer

Kathleen McNulty Mauchly Antonelli, 85, of Ambler, one of the original
programmers of the first electronic computer, died of cancer Thursday at
Keystone Hospice in Wyndmoor.

<snip>



As a long-ago programming student of John Mauchly, I didn't want her
passing to go unrecognized by the IP community.  She was inducted into
the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame, and recognized for
her many contributions to the history of early digital computing in America.
