    Betty was a precious and much loved Lady. She had a courageous outgoing personality and was always pitching in to help out whenever she could. She loved her Family dearly. What a blessing to know she will be with her beloved children who have passed on.

    I will miss Betty. I had a lot of fun when my children and I were a part of the Book Study group held in her home. I learned a lot about the Bible then. I will never forget how she would invite my family and other friends to her home for lunch after the meeting on Sundays. Then we would go to field service after that. Betty was very hospitable. Even now I am always ready to go to service on Sunday afternoons. We had a lot of fun serving Jehovah.

    Darlene and family, so heart broken that Betty had to go to sleep but know she was very sick. Dear friend and lover of our God Jehovah and hope we will all be in the new world together soon. Hard worker in the truth and kind and giving heart. A persons illness makes them not the same but Jehovah will restore that love in the way he remembers her hard work. Take care and know that you are loved.The safest place we can be is in Jehovah`s loving memory. Love you ..Jackie and Ken Harkey

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.


Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.


The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
