Kyle-Rush-obit-webWAKEFIELD — Wakefield resident Kyle Anne Rush lost her fight to her illness on April 27 at the age of 19.

Kyle was the beloved daughter of John F. and Catherine Rush. She was the loving sister to John, Gregory, Scott, Mary, Meghan, Samantha, Brandon, Daniel and late Colin J. Rush. Although she struggled for many years, she embraced the world for all that it was with a passion unmatched by most.

The wake was Sunday, May 3, 1 to 5 p.m. at McDonald Funeral, 19 Yale Ave., Wakefield.

Kyle graduated from Wakefield Memorial High School in 2013. She was a co-founder of the WMHS Varsity Girls’ Volleyball Team, member of WMHS Colorguard, WMHS Girls’ JV Women’s’ Ice Hockey, WMHS Track, WMHS Sign Language club, WMHS Social Awareness club, as well as a member of the Wakefield White Sox.

Kyle held a Certificate as a Phlebotomy Technician and hoped to start work in the medical field to help others. For those that knew her, she was someone with a big heart, open mind and, in true Rush form, was never shy about speaking her mind.

In honor of her memory, her family is putting together a fund to start a scholarship for a High School student in need who is looking to further his/her education. They are asking for donations, in lieu of flowers.
