There are many extraordinary folders that are not longer with us who have made a mark.
The national organization for origami in America, known as OrigamiUSA gives memorializes a number these on the OrigamiUSA memoriam page. View more as commemorations of origami professionals at British Origami Society memorial page as well.
Laura Kruskel (1923-2019) is the late daughter-in-law of Lillian Oppenheimer (who popularized origami in the America). Laura taught well with a fun and caring spirit. She is best known for her origami crowns that you can fold and read all about. She is missed!
If you would like to memorialize an Origamist no longer with us, please submit memorial content.
