                  "  When We Lose Someone We Love, We Gain An Angel We Know "

 Our beloved and beautiful Stephanie Michelle Trull, was born on January 9, 1975 and entered into the Kingdom of Heaven on September 5, 2023.

Stephanie was greatly loved and adored by her parents, Vickie Jo Pinkerton, and the late Robert James Trull and was always a bright light in their lives. She had made her home in Haywood County all of her life and Stephanie Michelle made an instant impact on everyone who met her. Her radiating smile and her fun-spirited personality always brought joy and happiness to everyone around her.  Our hearts are broken by losing Stephanie but we shall hold onto her precious memory until we meet again. 

Following her graduation from Pisgah High School, she began her career as a licensed cosmetologist and for 28 dedicated years she delighted in taking care of her clients, who became just like family members to Stephanie. As we recall special memories of her life, we remember how she enjoyed music and her excitement of attending live concerts with family and friends. She had a passion for spending time outdoors and her joy of working in her flowers and tending to her plants were some of Stephanie’s most favorite moments. We can be certain that beautiful flowers surround her in her heavenly home.  Also, we shall never forget her compassion for all animals. Family gatherings and celebrations were always treasured by Stephanie and her great love for all her family was a blessing to each of them. We give thanks for her life and the loving imprint that Stephanie has left on our hearts for 48 wonderful years. She is now a beautiful angel in heaven and will be forever missed.    

Stephanie was preceded in death by her father, Robert James Trull; her maternal grandfather, Thomas Cleo Pinkerton and her paternal great-grandparents, Perry and Diccie Trull.

Surviving are her mother, Vickie Jo Pinkerton of Canton; her son, Bly Mekel Trull and his wife Maddie of Canton; Stephanie’s fiancé, Shane Brown; her maternal grandmother, Juanita Pinkerton of Canton; several aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends; and also her special long-haired Chihuahua, “BB”.

A funeral service to honor and celebrate Stephanie’s life will be held at 2:30 pm on Sunday, September 10, 2023, in the chapel of Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service. The family will be receiving friends at the funeral home from 1:00 pm until 2:30 pm prior to the funeral service. Pastor Allen Rash and Pastor Josh Skidmore will be officiating. Burial will follow in Riverside Cemetery. Serving as pallbearers will be Bly Trull, Shane Brown, Jason Skidmore, Josh Fisher, Noah Heatherly, and Neill Cagle.

Our 30 years of Friendship meant The World to me...and although I was 636 miles from my driveway to hers, She Always had a Special Place in My Heart and my trips to the Mountains will never be the same!! I was so Grateful I made the trip up last week to say my final Good-Byes and I know she knows I was there, those tears I will always remember!! Our Friendship was always full of Love and Listening...and Traveling! I was always up there and she always loved coming to Florida to see me, we had the Best Times Together...and we still had so much to do!! They say God only gives you things he thinks you can handle, but I wasn't ready for this, not yet!! Now I just hope he gives me the Strength to handle it and the Knowledge to understand why!! Go Rest High On That Mountain Stephanie and Thank You for all Our Memories!!! I will cherish them forever!!
