Shenshen  Wu
Shenshen Wu, 73, of Shrewsbury died on Saturday, February 4, 2017 in the Rose Monahan Hospice Home surrounded by her loving family.

She was born in Tainan County, Taiwan daughter of the late Chin-Ching Lin, the former Ambassador from Taiwan to Japan, and Ai-Kai Wu Lin. Shenshen was educated in Taiwan for her elementary years. She then attended high school in Tokyo, Japan before coming to the United States and attending the University of Rhode Island where she graduated with a B.S. Degree in Chemistry. She then met and married, Chang Ning Wu and had lived happily married for the past 49 years.

Shenshen had worked as a research and analytical chemist at ICI United States, Inc. in Dighton, MA from 1967 until 1970. She then worked from 1977 until 2005 in various capacities in the R & D Department of Titleist Golf Division of Acushnet Company and rose to the position of Project Manager of Polyurethane cover projects. She authored and co-authored more than 100 issued patents. Most notable of these was the innovation that ushered in the 3rd generation of golf ball cover material which brought about the dominance of the Titleist PRO V1. In 2006, Shenshen became a Consultant for the Hanson Group in Georgia in the field of Polyurethanes and Polyureas.
