We announce with great sadness the passing of Estelle Lent of Hauppauge, NY, wife of Howard Lent of 63 years. Estelle was born on May 24,1940 and passed on October 27, 2023. Estelle graduated Alfred University with an BA in mathematics from Alfred University in 1960. She was a female pioneer in the field of computer programming from her graduation in 1960 until she began raising a family in 1965. Once her children reached adulthood, she pursued a second career in social work after graduating with an MSW in social work from Stony Brook University in 1987. Estelle loved to swim, to take long walks on the boardwalk, and could never be rushed.
Estelle is survived by her husband Howard Lent, twin sister Barbara Sherman, Barbara’s husband Donald Sherman, her elder son Elliot Lent, Elliot’s wife Annemarie Lent, her younger son Arthur Lent, Arthur’s wife Allison Andrews, their two children Cary Lent and Ashley Lent, and many nieces and nephews. She was a long time beloved community member of Temple Beth David of Commack, NY.

Estelle is predeceased by her father Allen Simon and her mother Grace Simon.

I met Estelle in high school, over 65 years ago. Throughout those 65 years we have stayed in touch via visits, phone calls, and cards. I will greatly miss her friendship.
