Mona E. Stanley


Dexter - Mona E. Stanley, 86, passed away peacefully Friday, March 8, 2019, at the Barron Center in Portland, ME. She spent her final days surrounded by family and many loved ones.
She was born September 8, 1932, in Canaan, ME, the daughter of Leslie and Ida (Soule) Moody. She graduated from Skowhegan High School, class of 1951. On December 5, 1953, she married Harold E. Stanley Jr. in Skowhegan, and they lived a full and loving life together until his passing in January 2018.

Mona loved her two boys but took it to another level with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be missed dearly, but left us with so many stories and memories to remember her by. She and Harold enjoyed frequent travel to visit with family and friends and the winters they spent in Sarasota, Fl. Mona was especially fond of seafood and the trips they made frequently to the coast to enjoy Maine Lobster and steamers. An avid seamstress and knitter, many of her sweaters, hats, mittens, and clothing are still used today.

Mona is survived by her children, Harold (Amy) of Westbrook, ME, and Leslie (Katie) of Concord, NH; grandchildren, Sarah Griffin (Barry) of Portland, Hilary Yehling (Eric) of Candia, NH, Tom Stanley (Shawn) of Fremont, NH, and Alyssa Stanley of Concord, NH; as well as four great-grandchildren, Sadie and Oliver Griffin and Reid and Miles Yehling. Mona is also survived by several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Harold; parents; and siblings, Robert, Ken, Roger, Royce, Virginia, Shirley and Joyce.

A celebration of Mona's life and interment next to her husband, Harold, will occur at the Maine Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Augusta this spring.
