Andover, NH - Laurie Ferguson, 56, of Ward Lane, died Sunday, April 17, 2011 at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH. She was born in Pittsburgh, PA on April 3, 1955. Laurie graduated from Colby-Sawyer College and Middlebury College [1975-1977], where she excelled as a student and ski racer. A resident of Andover, NH for 25 years, she enjoyed a successful career in public relations and marketing, with clients including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen's Fair and Ski New Hampshire.
In 2004 she became Executive Director of New Hampshire Made, the non-profit marketing organization that strengthens the state's economy by increasing the awareness and demand for New Hampshire-made products and services through its annual "Guide to NH Products & Services", its web site and on-line store at www.nhmade.com, and its two retail stores.

She loved New Hampshire, its mountains, lakes, seacoast and people.
Laurie was an active community volunteer, and a valued member of the Wilmot Baptist Church, particularly in work with children, including teaching Sunday School and helping teens in the Young Life ministry.
She is survived by her fiancé Allen Koop, her sons Buckman and Canon, her brothers Sanford, Bruce, and Gary Ferguson, her parents Bob and Louise Ferguson, and nieces and nephews. She devoted herself to Christ, to Allen, to Buckman and Canon, to her work, and to the well-being of all those touched by her radiant life.
