In the sciences, we recently lost astronomer and physicist Vera Rubin, who joins Lise Meitner and Rosalind Franklin in the perpetually disappointing category of "women who fully deserved and did not get Nobel Prizes". Even the AP obit has maddening phrasing about "helped find" vs. "did find".
Double whammy in that they were all Jewish women (I'm not quite certain about Rubin, but Franklin & Meitner were for sure).
Not that being Jewish has ever been a big barrier to receiving a Nobel, but for other forms of recognition, it may or may not have come into play at times.
