    So sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Presley. I worked with her many years ago at Hardee’s. She was a wonderful lady to know and work with. I know she will be missed terribly.. Prayers for all of you.

      I grew up across the street from Olivia and her family on Austin St in Albemarle. She and Addie Bea werer several years older than I. They both helped me with my school home work. I loved both of them dearly and so sorry to hear of her passing.

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.
