Kathy Reilly-Fulton, beloved wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friend and teacher died suddenly on Tuesday, April 5, 2016 at North Florida Regional Medical Center.

Kathy graduated from Plantation High School in 1976 and the University of South Florida in 1981 with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Elementary Education. While in college, Kathy worked at Learning Space, an early childcare center in Temple Terrace. It was there Kathy discovered her love of teaching pre-kindergarten students.

Kathy was an ESE teacher at Village Elementary and Croissant Park Elementary Schools until retiring in June 2015. “Miss Kathy” will be fondly remembered by her students and their grateful parents.

Kathy was preceded in death by her father, George T. Reilly, brother George J. Reilly and infant sister Jeanmarie.
