Laura Wilkinson Memorial Fund

In late 1989, a child tragically died and her family was faced with not only tremendous grief, but also the burden of funeral expenses. The Erie community, however, came to the family’s aid and the legacy of the Laura Wilkinson Memorial Fund was established.

The generosity was such that, after the expenses for the Wilkinson funeral were paid, a substantial balance remained. Inter-Church Ministries was designated the trustee of the fund which continues to assist families after a death of a child.

The Laura Wilkinson Memorial Fund provides money for funeral expenses of any child age 17 or under when the family cannot afford a proper service. ICM monitors the disbursements of the fund with set parameters. To date the fund has assisted an additional seventeen families of various racial, ethnic and faith traditions.
