    Donna, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was obviously very loving and gave selflessly to her church, family and community. May peace be with you and your family today and in the days ahead during this difficult time. Praying for you and your family.

    So sorry to hear of Joann’s passing, she was such a nice, friendly as well as professional lady. We met her when we moved back from Charleston, SC to Albemarle in ‘06. Don & Joann sold us our last house, I had known Don for years through his sales at Confederate Chevrolet, where Don sold me my first car in ‘67. Prayers for Don and family through their time of loss, may God comfort them during 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.
