Lisa Upton Family College Fund

Our dear friend Lisa Upton passed away at age 50, leaving behind her husband, Tom, and two daughters, age 17 and 13. Lisa was passionate about her daughters, and took every opportunity to volunteer in their schools, church, and help with activities. She wanted every success for them.

Lisa was a member of our book club, The Restaurant Readers, and shared our passion for reading and for friendship. Lisa was the first member of her family to graduate from college, and her daughters plan to follow her example after high school. We want to honor Lisa’s goal of college educations for her daughters by raising money to help Tom send them to college.
