Kathryn Horne Trull

Kathryn Horne Trull, 73, passed peacefully into her heavenly home Monday June 29, 2020 at her home with family by her side. She was born in Monroe, NC, February 12, 1947. The daughter of the late Olin A and Wilma M Horne. She was a graduate of Forest Hills High School, class of 1965.

As a long time employee of New Hanover Regional Medical Center, Kathryn worked in the Biomedical Engineering Department and retired in July 2019. She loved the friendships she shared with each of her coworkers.

Kathryn served faithfully along side of her husband at the churches he served, especially at Trinity Baptist Church in Metterich Germany. It was there she became a mother figure to many young service members who were stationed at Spangdahlem and Bitburg Airbase. Even though that was 38 years ago, those friendships are still strong today. Kathryn was also a long standing member of Global River Church where she worshiped our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with fellow members.

She is survived by her husband Reverend Charles Trull who she began her life’s journey with 56 years ago. She is also survived by two sons, Stuart of Starkville MS. Mark (April) of Bolivia, four grandsons, Anthony Trull of Wilmington, Wesley Trull of Atlanta Ga, Christopher(Amanda) Evans of Shallotte, Patrick (Haley) Evans of Winston Salem NC and one great granddaughter Natalie Mae Evans of Shallotte NC. In addition she is survived by one brother Glynn Horne of Indian Trail NC. She was predeceased by her sister Fayenell Whitley of Mableton, GA.

A Memorial Service to celebrate her life will be held at 1:00pm Saturday July 11, 2020 at Global River Church on South College Rd conducted by her pastor, Reverend Tom Hauser and Lt Col (USAF Retired) Joe Noland. The Family will receive friends at the church one hour prior to the service.

    I will always remember it crystal trip. But I'll always remember just the friendship and feeling of family we shared so far away from home. It made Germany a home as well.

    I worked with Kathryn many times over her years of service at NHMRC. I always found her to be a very pleasant and a sweet lady in every since of the word. Our thoughts and prayers to all the family. She will be missed by all.

    I was sorry to learn of Kathryn's passing. Kathryn was always delightful and ready to share God's Word whenever our paths would cross at the hospital. She will be missed.

    Scott and Karen Johnson says:
    Katheryn and Charles were very supportive during Scott's first deployment to Germany. The time spent with them was always a fond memory and the exhortation he received from the Trulls has stayed with him for years. During a trying time with Scott's health, Kathryn reached out to me and encouraged me on how to be a supportive wife and to help him the best. I never met Kathryn in person, but when she spoke to me on the phone and sent me messages, it was a lifeline that I needed. Praise God for such a Godly woman to make herself available to me, a stranger. The world is a sadder place without her, but I look forward to meeting her one day and giving her a big hug and thank you.

    Kathryn was a true friend, I met her at work many years ago. She taught me many lessons in life, to include forgiveness and trust. She was truly a child of God and shared her love for him with others. A true Angel and now she at home where there is no more pain or sickness. In the arms of Jesus!!!
