Laura Crawford- Aug 2017.jpg

“Laura’s Fund” has been created to help children in need in the North Country area and to help an aspiring teacher afford college.

Laura (Crawford) Mulkigian, of Lyme, N.H., passed away at her home surrounded by her family on June 27, 2017. She was a 1st grade teacher for many years at Lisbon Regional School. She was everything a student could wish for; devoted, insightful, loving, creative and smart. Later in her career she became the Reading Specialist where she was equally impactful teaching students the subject she was most passionate about. Laura was dearly loved by the students, their families and staff. The list of ways that Laura made this world a better place and blessed those that were lucky enough to know her are really too numerous to name, but suffice it to say she was truly a person that epitomized God’s love on earth.
