Kelly Anne Lacilla had a life long caring and loving heart for all animals. At two years old Kelly had her first experience of being exposed to so many species of animals, birds and exotic creatures as family took her and her sister Kristin to Connecticut’s treasured Beardsley Zoo. As an adult, Kelly would visit zoos in so many places she traveled. She created great new memories for she and friends on those adventures and especially loved sharing with great friends the introduction of your Tiger Cubs on their visit in 2018.
Throughout her adult life Kelly always cared for her own pets and other animals. She found ways to make charitable contributions to support multiple charitable preservation causes.
Very sadly, Kelly passed on March 27, 2020. The family is honored to request donations in Kelly’s memory be made to Beardsley Zoo. Donations are used for the care and quality of life for the animals they continue to nurture for preservation of the zoos environment and enjoyment of all visitors.
