    Jane was a good friend and enjoyed many hours in PSI and IAAP organization. She always talked about her two boys and loved them very much. She will be greatly missed.

    I knew Jane since 1986 as a member of the Mid-Carolinas CPS/CAP Society. We developed a wonderful friendship. Jane was a dedicated person to any task she decided to accomplish. My thoughts and prayers are with the family members at this time. I will treasure all the memories I have of Jane and the wonderful person she was. May God comfort you at this time.

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.
