    Judy and I worked together as nurses at a local facility. Her smile was contagious, her humor uplifting, and her nursing nothing short of impeccable. She contributed to this community in her caring and compassionate care of others. I have not seen her in a number of years, but she had such a positive impact on my life.

    To Mrs Almonds family, you are in my prayers. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She was an angel among us as we shared several years of employment at the Lutheran Nursing Home. May she take her flight to be with the Angels in heaven. She was a sprit filled woman whom I will always remember. Prayerfully yours, Charliebelle C.

    Miss Judy was the hospice nurse that was there for me when my husband passed. She was one who treated with great care when he was in his last days, and show just as much respect after his death. She fit into a category of few and far between of those who really put her all into her work. God bless to the family, remember we are guaranteed to see her again when God the Father tells Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ “Bring my children home.” 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 King James Version (KJV)

  • Robbie and Keith Walters Posted July 31, 2019 10:34 am

    We have known Judy for many years and she always had that sweet smile and loving spirit even in the difficult times. We saw just a short time ago and she greeted us by saying “Oh my special friends.”.. I know that there will be hard times ahead but remember you all are not alone and as Judy said we will understand by and by when that great day comes to all of God’s people. Prayers and love to each one of you.

  • Kathy Will Posted July 31, 2019 12:43 pm

    So sorry for your families loss. I will be thinking of you all.

  • Debbie Thomas Posted July 31, 2019 1:12 pm

    I have know Judy for many years. We worked together at Hospice and she was a mentor of mine, as she taught me so much. She had the sweetest smile and spirit and loved taking care of others. She will be missed by so many, but we will see her again one day. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family as they go through these difficult days, weeks and months ahead.

  • Angel Jenkins Posted August 1, 2019 11:02 am

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. I worked with Judy at Hospice where she became known as “Moma” Judy. She was a compassionate nurse and a great friend. She shared a story with us at work one day about a little lady who had been difficult to care for. One day Judy said something to her and the lady said, ” a kind word turneth away wrath.” (Proverbs 15:1) Judy shared it with us because of a conversation she over heard. This has come to my mind a lot over the years and I just shared this story last week with someone and thought about Judy. She loved her job but loved her family more. May you find comfort in all your wonderful memories.

  • Eric Johnsen MD Posted August 1, 2019 3:15 pm

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.
