    The vice president of New Lenox School District 122 Board resigned this week following accusations she stalked a woman and her four children.

    Susan Gillooley served as vice president of the board for five years and chose to resign Monday to spend more time with her children, she said in a statement.

    Prior to Gillooley’s resignation, Will County Judge Victoria Kennison ordered Gillooley and Kathleen Jackson, the woman who accused Gillooley of stalking, to stay at least 100 feet away from each other for the next three months, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

    Jackson, of New Lenox, filed a police report against Gillooley last month accusing her of profane phone calls and text messages and harassing home visits.

    Jackson claims the stalking may have something to do with the protectiveness of Gillooley's boyfriend, a friend of Jackson.

    Gillooley's attorney Daniel Kallan told the Chicago Sun-Times that Jackson's accusations are only meant to harass Gillooley.

    Gillooley's resignation is effective immediately.
