A Connecticut family mourning the tragic death of a young mother has received an outpouring of support from their community.

Lindsay Crosby gave birth to her third child, a baby boy named Nolan, just two weeks ago. She passed away on July 4 after battling Strep A and sepsis at Hartford Hospital.

In just a matter of days, friends and family have raised more than $250,000 on a GoFundMe page to help cover funeral expenses and to support her husband and three young children.

Her family described her as "a woman who lived and loved with her full heart," in a statement featured on the page.

She passed far before any were ready for her to go, and yet, we know she is restored to fullness with our Father in heaven. Lindsay was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, family and friend to many. 

So many roles she held - and so many holes will need to be filled in her absence.

Lindsay had worked at Westminster School in Simsbury for the past 3 years as associate director of admissions. She was also the head coach of the girls’ lacrosse team, a dorm supervisor and student advisor. 

A school spokesperson said the faculty and students are heartbroken.

“Lindsay’s warm smile and valuable contributions to all aspects of school life will be sorely missed. We are doing our best to process this terrible tragedy and have the Crosby family in our prayers and thoughts as we respect their privacy," the spokesperson said.
