Throughout my academic and professional lifetime, she has loomed large in the work she has done. CLU, Argus, encoding schemes for sending graph-based data structures, subtyping. The list goes on.

IMHO when the history of CS is written, she will be up there with Dijkstra et al (I certainly regard her as being as important as the others) .
