Kathleen R. Ullrich Obituary
NORTH HAMPTON - Kathleen R. Ullrich, of North Hampton, passed away at her daughter's home in Dedham, Mass., on Monday, August 27, 2018, after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer. She was 71.

Born April 10, 1947 in Buffalo, N.Y., she graduated from Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Md., and the University of Maryland College Park, where she studied history and English.

Kathy will be missed by all for her loving, compassionate, and giving nature. In short, she was a true nurturer. A devoted and deeply caring mother, she raised four children, while also working for many years as a pre-school teacher, most recently at the Exeter Day School, in Exeter. At various points she also worked in the arenas of human resources and social services.

Kathy also enjoyed sailing, her rescue dogs, and all things related to nature- including wildlife, the ocean, and horticulture. Whether in a personal or professional capacity, she instilled in children under her care respect and appreciation for all creatures great and small. She also had a special penchant for rescuing orphaned and injured wildlife. And wherever she lived, her green thumb was hard at work maintaining exceptional landscapes, plantings and gardens.

Later on in life, her interest in yoga was reignited. It became her passion and highlighted how she sought to nurture everyone and everything in her life. She helped found the Yoga Life Institute in Exeter, N.H., and was certified by the Yoga Alliance as E-RYT 500 and YACEP. She taught classes at numerous locations across the Seacoast area, as well as volunteering her time to teach yoga for those with cancer.

She is survived by her partner, Rex Gallagher of Hampton; four children, Christina Ullrich and husband Wayne Sentman of Dedham, Mass., Robert Ullrich and wife Zoey Ullrich of Dover, Bradley Ullrich of Nashua, Weston Ullrich and wife Vanessa Holzer of Waldkirch Germany; her grandchildren, Abbey (age seven) and Cooper (age three) Ullrich; and her beloved Jack Russell Terrier, Daisy. An over thirty-year inhabitant of the Seacoast area, had many dear friends in the area as well. The light and love she carried will live on in all those she leaves behind.

SERVICES: A celebration of life will be held rain or shine at 2:30 p.m., on Sunday, September 23, at Odiorne Point State Park, 505 Ocean Blvd., Rye. Attendees are encouraged to wear vibrant colors in honor of Kathy.
