Dear all

The first obituaries have begun to appear for Mary Lee Berners-Lee, 
formerly Mary Lee Woods, one of the earliest Ferranti programmers, who 
died on 29 November of last year:

She is the subject of (to my knowledge) two valuable oral history 
interviews, Janet Abbate's of 2001, and Tom Lean's of 2010 alongside her 
husband Conway Berners-Lee:
