    She was such a sweet lady! I always looked forward to seeing her when I visited mom at Spring Arbor. Both she and your Dad were very special people!!

    Kathy and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss! When we volunteered at Hospice, Faye and I loved to tease one another, and I came to love her smile and sense of humor. She was a class act! You and your family will be in my prayers.

    Kathy and Jeff, I’m thinking of you at this difficult time. Faye, and Chad before her, left the world a better place than it could have been had they not been.

  • Tereda Horton Posted August 23, 2020 9:37 pm

    Kathy, I was sorry to learn of your mother’s departure from earth.
    I pray you and the family will accept my heartfelt sympathy. May the precious Holy Spirit comfort 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.
