    As have told others my first time at St. Martin, Sue immediately greeted me and the next time I was there I recieve a wonderful hug like we had known each other for years. She will be missed. Prayers for The family.

    I feel very blessed to have met Sue. She was a super nice lady, and was both kind and gracious.. Every time I saw her, she made me feel like we were old friends. Most importantly, she made my Uncle happy. She was deeply loved by all who knew her and she will be sorely missed.

    Sue was such an integral part of our church family, for many years. She left everyone who knew her with good memories. Prayers for all of her family.

    I will miss her she always looked out for me. I wish I could be there with you all today to remember all those great times up at her farm house when I was a kid.

    We are so very sorry. Aunt Sue is always a big celebrity when we talk about “old times”. Stories of Sue and Lydia and Russ will go on forever I hope. Unfortunately, we cannot join you to celebrate Sue’s life at this time.
    We miss you all.

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.
