Annette Kristen "Kris" Pinkerman Click for Condolences      Printable Version
1967 - 2020

Annette Kristen March 24, 2020, Annette Kristen “Kris” Pinkerman went home to be with the Lord. Born March 9, 1967, Kris was a member of Huntington First Church of the Nazarene. Kris was a previous faithful member of Cox Landing United Methodist Church where she spent many years singing in the “Cox Landing Fine Choir,” and playing piano. She is survived by her Mother and Father John and Donna Pinkerman of Lesage, WV. Kris graduated from Barboursville High School and attended Marshall University. Kris lived a life of service as a member of the Lesage Lions Club. She served as district governor for District 29-0 in 2012-2013. She enjoyed traveling all over the US serving as a Lion. Kris was an employee of the West Virginia State Tax Department as the Tax and Revenue Manager. Kris lived life to the fullest. She was a “die-hard” Marshall Fan and enjoyed tailgating with her family and friends while cheering on the Herd. Kris loved to travel spending as much time as she could enjoying Myrtle Beach with family and friends, she referred to it as “her happy place.” Kris leaves behind a sister Johnna (David) Adams of Huntington, WV. She will be missed by her beloved nephew Jordan (Mallory) Adams of Ona, WV, and niece Sydney Adams and fiancé Trevor Crewey of Lexington, Ky, who fondly referred to her as KooKoo, a term of endearment that she loved. She will be missed by her sweet constant K-9 companion “Dolly,” who stayed by her side through her illness. Kris leaves a void in her community and friends circle that will never be filled. She enjoyed the friendship of people all over the country all of whom she leaves a legacy of love. Kris will be missed by a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins who have been blessed to have her sweet presence in their lives. The Thomas family Christmas will never be the same without our Kris. We take solace in the truth that Kris firmly believed , “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:8 Services will be private with Reverend Marc Price officiating a family service at Wallace Funeral Home of Barboursville, WV. In light of the current health crisis, the family will have a celebration of Kris’ life at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family would rather make a contribution to the W.V. Lions Sight Conservation Foundation, 1170 Avalon Road, Fairmont, WV, 26554 or the organization of your choice. Condolences may be expressed to the family at

Dear Family, You may never understand the impact Kris has had in our lives as a part of county government all over the state. Her knowledge and ability to remedy problem situations was incredible. I have worked in the county for 29 years and am now the Assessor in Preston County. The help we received from her will never be forgotten. I know you will miss her terribly, but know that there is a whole state full of friends that are also grieving. Thank you for sharing your comfort about her knowledge of the Lord and belief that she is now in His presence!

I am so sorry for your loss. I can imagine that she was greeted by my mom, with Kris checking to see if she had her butterfly in her hair. My mom always made sure she had something in her hair to go to church because Kriis always commented on it. Kris was loved by all of us at Huntington First Church.

I have had the privilege of meeting & learning from Kris at several training sessions through the State Tax Department. She was definitely full of life and although we will miss her professionally, I cannot imagine your loss of such a beautiful vibrant lady. I'm so thankful she knows Jesus and you can find comfort in the fact that she is present with Him today. Praying for you and your family as you adjust in the days, weeks and months ahead.

Kris is now an angel of whom it may be said that she was loving, kind and forgiving to all who knew her. There are so few people about whom one might say they stand above us all in their character. She was always so very kind, and her life of service and purpose is an example. Grieving alongside you upon news of her passing. Mrs. Fred Herz (Tracy Edmonds Herz)
