Annabelle Stepanich Castro Obituary – Death, Annabelle Stepanich Castro Funeral

Annabelle Stepanich CastroApril 28, 1950 – December 24, 2021 Clovis, California – Beautiful Annabelle went to heaven December 24, 2021 with family at her side. “Bella” was a sensitive, compassionate, and loving person who gave everyone she met her focused attention. Her friends and family basked in the warmth of her playful and adventurous spirit. She loved nature, and spent many happy days bird-watching in her lovely garden at her house in Morro Bay.

Her love for people led her to the nursing profession. She spent 45 years working first as a registered nurse and then as a family nurse practitioner. Her career allowed her to touch the lives of many, and she embraced this calling with enthusiasm.

Bella was a devoted wife to her husband of 39 years, Michael, and a loving mother to her daughters Rebecca and Laura. Family was her first priority, and she dedicated all of herself to ensuring they were cared for. She was a pillar of strength for her family.
Proud of her Serbian heritage, Bella was an active member of St. Peter Serbian Orthodox Church. Her Christian faith was unwavering; it gave her hope and strength during her 2-year battle with cancer.
Bella is survived by her husband Michael, daughters Laura and Rebecca, and son-in-law Stephen.
