Kayla Sullivan Obituary

HAVERHILL - Kayla Sullivan, cherished eldest daughter of Lynn Sullivan and Terence Sullivan, passed away on January 8, 2024. She leaves behind her three siblings, Ryan Sullivan, of Weehawken, NJ, Megan Sullivan, of Raymond, NH, and Brenna Sullivan, of Haverhill, MA, along with her adored maternal grandmother Joyce Montisanti, step-grandfather, Harry French, maternal grandfather, Anthony Montisanti, her beloved aunt (and Godmother) Stacey Kirkham and uncle Brian Kirkham, aunt Lauren Page, stepfather Charles Gilbride, in addition to several aunts, uncles and cousins. She was predeceased by her paternal grandparents, Nicholas and MaryAnn Sullivan. 

Born and raised in Haverhill, MA, Kayla attended Walnut Square, Pentucket Lake and John Greenleaf Whittier Middle schools, and went on to graduate from Central Catholic High School. She excelled in school and in many extra-curricular activities.

Although Kayla faced many struggles in her life, she did not let them define her. As a teen, she was an avid soccer player, playing on travel and club teams all throughout the Northeast. She was a lover of all animals, but none more than her dog, Reese. He was commonly referred to as her "baby" and brought her so much joy. They could often be found playing fetch with his Kong - his favorite thing to do!

Kayla had a kind heart, a quick wit and a distinctive, infectious laugh. When she loved, she loved fiercely. She was always there with a helping hand if any of her numerous friends needed it. Kayla will be forever missed and incredibly loved by all who knew her. 

Family, friends and others whose lives Kalya touched are invited on Monday, January 15 to Driscoll Funeral Home, 309 S. Main Street, Haverhill from 4:00 to 7:00 PM to grieve, support each other and reminisce. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to be made to the ASPCA, reflecting Kayla’s passion for the welfare of animals.
