    Renee was in High School with me. She always loved music. As an adult she was a valued member of the First Lutheran choir. My mother was privileged to have her in her choir and have her friendship. Her family is in my family’s thoughts and prayers.

    So very sorry for your loss, family. Renee and I were in choir together at St. James Lutheran Church for years. Loved singing with her all those years. She will be greatly missed. May the Lord grant you His peace that passes all understanding. God bless you as you face the days ahead.

    Renee was a sweet wonderful person. She will be sorely missed by all. She was a wonderful friend to me when I was growing up and invited me to spend the night at her house frequently in the 7th grade. I enjoyed her family as well as her. It made a big difference in my life. Renee is an angel now and we all will miss her. Fly high Renee!

    Renee was a kind and lovely person. Everyone in our choir at First Lutheran loved her. She will be very much missed for she was a great alto and friend. She had a quick wit, a great faith, and no matter her circumstances, she was always smiling and fun to be around. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends, for she was greatly loved.

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.
