Wensdy Whitehead

Biography: A folder since age 4, Wensdy Whitehead was born on June 24, 1971, and lived until May 7, 2023.  As a Cornell University graduate, she was raised in Michigan and lived in the Boston area most of her adult life.  She was a veteran and entrepreneur with a specialty in origami and computer science.  She had a fun sense of humor filled with folded puns.  Wensdy was a smart intellectual caring person.
