Ann M. Reilly, of Cumberland, passed away in the presence of her family and loved ones on June 15, 2017. She was the beloved wife of Thomas J. Reilly. They had been married for twenty seven years.
Ann was born in Pawtucket, the daughter of the late Gerald Keane and Virginia (Murray) Keane.
Ann was a United States Army veteran with the 455th Field Hospital, serving in the reserves for over twenty one years. At the time of her passing, she was employed at the Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island as an X-Ray technician in the Diagnostic Imaging department. She had worked at Memorial for over forty years, and was a well-respected co-worker and mentor who made others feel at ease with her sense of humor and kindness.
In addition to her husband Tom, Ann is survived by her mother-in-law Madge Rennox, and her stepsons Patrick Reilly and his wife Sandra of Pawtucket, and Charles Reilly of South Attleboro, Massachusetts. She leaves her sister Virginia Kircanski of Cumberland and her brother Dr. Gerald Keane of Redwood City, California. She also leaves her nieces, Dr. Krista Kircanski of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Dr. Katharina Kircanski of Cabin John, Maryland, along with other nieces and nephews. Ann, or "Tanto" as her family lovingly called her, will be remembered for her generosity and compassion for others, her thoughtful nature, and her sense of humor that made everyone laugh, whether it was at your expense or not.
