The green lights shone on February 8th at 11:35 at night, in honor of the Gift of Life Hero status this angel had achieved. Taylor was a beautiful soul. Her smile was vivacious and her laugh hearty. Her perpetual smile would warm any heart. For those who had the honor to know and love her, we will always live with the regret that we were unable to see the sadness beneath. If only we knew, we would do anything to help her because we loved her so much.
Taylor was born July 25, 1995, to the late Will Stull and Lori Stull. She came into Jennie and Tom’s family with her identical twin, Tiana, when they were two years of age. In their early years, “The Girls,” shared a language between them that no one but themselves understood and through their 28 years of life, shared a sisterly bond that was truly unbreakable.
As they journeyed into life, their bond remained steadfast and they even attended Bloomsburg University together and later became employed at the same places, Silver Care and FedEx, sharing lunches, breaks and texts about life.
Taylor also had strong bonds with her siblings, niece, and nephews, and would become revitalized and her spirit would heighten when she would spend time with them.
In December of 2008, her youngest brother was born, and Taylor and Tiana had named him Santino. Both sisters became little mothers to him, feeding him, dressing him and in later years taking him places to show him the beauty in the world. There was a look in Taylor’s eyes for Santino that Tiana will carry on and it said, “We gotcha brother.”
Another important person in Taylor’s life was David. The two had shared a love for dogs, country music and their relationship was one of a kind filled with friendship and love. He will truly miss Taylor.
Taylor had a genuine love for animals. She and Tiana volunteered countless hours at the SPCA where she will receive a plaque for her dedication and love for the rescue dogs housed there. The love of her life were her fur children: Mimi, Izzy, Chase-Roni, and Bubba.
Taylor was preceded in death by her father, Willard Stull, Jr., her grandfathers, Gerard Musto and Ignatius Saporito and her grandmother Patricia Stull.
In addition to her mother, Lori Stull, she is survived by her parents that raised her, Thomas and Jennie Saporito, her siblings Tiana Stull Saporito, Santino Saporito, Will Stull,III and Rhiana, Kendra and husband Dillan Walsh, Sean Lyesiewicz and Taylor’s beloved boyfriend, David Diaz. Also surviving are her grandparents from birth and throughout life Willard Stull, Sr., Lorraine Petrauskas, Domenica Musto, and Ellen Saporito, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
The family would like to give a special thanks to the staff of Geisinger’s ICU, Taylor’s coworkers at FedEx and Fr. Paul McDonnell who supported the family through this journey.
So many earthly things will give us memories of Taylor and most importantly we will never forget the sweet, caring and giving soul she had which was exemplified right up until her passing when she donated the Gift of Life. Until we meet again, we will be watching for red hearts. Love you, Taylor.
A mass of Christian burial will be held Thursday, February 15, 2024, at 10 am in St. Joseph Marello Parish, 237 William Street Pittston. Taylor’s family will receive friends and relatives, from 9am until time of mass.
