New London remembers former mayor, museum director Mollie WardNEW LONDON, TX (KLTV) 
An East Texas woman who dedicated most of her life and all of her time to her community has passed away.

Mollie Ward, who was once the mayor of New London, died this morning at the age of 86. Listing all of Mollie's accomplishments is nearly impossible. There are many things that Mollie will always be remembered for--- including starting the New London Museum, which honors the victims and survivors of the New London School explosion.

In 1937, when the explosion occurred, Mollie Ward became a survivor. She used her life, which was spared, to make sure her classmates that were killed in the explosion would never be forgotten.
