Krystal Jeanette Strother, born April 27, 1982 died December 9, 2010. Krystal’s life was tragically shortened and will be missed more than any words can depict. She graduated from South Granville High School in 2000 and attended NC State University. She was employed at Duke Hospital. Krystal was a vivacious, outgoing and passionate young lady. She filled everyone’s life with joy and was infectious to be around. Krystal was always smiling or laughing. Her love for her family and friends was evidenced in the way she lived her life. She was loyal, supportive and dedicated to those she loved. Her friends said “As long as Krystal was on or by your side you were in good hands”.
She is survived by her parents Robert Edmond Strother, Jr. and Denell Turner Strother of Franklinton; grandmother, Jean Turner; great Aunt Edith Strother Murphy, boyfriend Dustin Hawkins and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. We love you Krystal.
