    She was the most loving, kind and funny person I’ve ever known. She loved my children and cared about them as if they were her own. She will be an incredibly hard act to follow. Her heart was bigger than most. Rest in peace Grey. I love you.

    Hilda was one sweet and special lady! She reminded me so much of my own mother. She always had a smile and was so caring. She will be greatly missed, but Heaven gained an angel. Love and prayers of sympathy to Jackie, Joyce and Donna and family.

    Hilda will always have a special place in my heart. To know her was to love her and I am going to miss her. She always loved seeing my kids and hearing about them and I always felt like she was my “work grandmother” with the way she would watch over me. She will be missed but I know she is rejoicing in heaven right now and no longer suffering from any sickness.❤

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.
