Kerry Anne Sullivan, 42, died at the Lincoln County Care Center on Oct. 15, 2018, following a long, arduous fight for life with a brain tumor and cancer.
Kerry was born June 18, 1976, in Waconia, Minn., to Michael and Lita Sullivan, and they moved to Hailey when she was 5 years old. Kerry attended school in Blaine County, graduating from Wood River High School in 1994. She attended Montana State University in Bozeman, where she studied Fashion Design.
Kerry worked in retail, as a waitress at Louie’s Pizza during their final year in Ketchum. Later she became a CNA at a skilled-nursing facility before working at her brother Brett’s business in bookkeeping and managing the office.
She always loved to read, sew, ski and to work on her art. The education path she was following involved art and design. Her various pictures and art works show how talented and creative she was, and these help us to remember her happiness, not just her illness.
Kerry was a loving mother of her son, Ian M. Cobb, and also survived by her mother, Lita Sullivan, of Hailey; her brother, Brett Sullivan, and his wife, Jen, and their children, McKenzie and Cash, of Boise; and stepbrothers Tim Sullivan and daughter Brooke, of Boston, Mass.; and Todd Sullivan, of Janesville, Wis. Her father, Michael C. Sullivan, preceded her in death.
A celebration of Kerry’s life will be from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. Sunday, June 16, 2019, at the home of Linda Reed and Bill Sample, 34 Chuckwagon Lane, in Bellevue, Idaho. Please bring any pictures you have to share, as well as any stories and memories.
Kerry’s ashes will be scattered by her family at a later date. Please visit woodriverchapel.com for more information and to leave a message of condolence for the family.
