Mrs. Stanley was very active in the V.F.W. She loved to dance and travel. Mrs. Stanley will always be remembered for being the life of the party, her quick wit, sense of humor and her warm smile. She was a hard worker that took great pride in everything she did. She never met a stranger. She lit up a room just by entering it. Her energy and passion for life was contagious. Her greatest passion was family. She loved her family dearly. Her free time was spent “ riding the roads” to visit them. You never found her without a Diet Coke and red freshly manicured nails.
