- August 18, 2012

LAGRANGE - Rhoda Mae Stanley, wife of the late Carlton Stanley, died Aug. 18, 2012. She was born May 20, 1929, in Presque Isle, to Thomas and Helen (Miller) Davis.

She and Carlton were married Aug. 20, 1948, and moved to LaGrange in 1955 to their home where Rhoda was able to be until her death. She also loved her camp on Boyd Lake, still going for an occasional picnic on the porch. First and foremost was Mom's love for family. She was her happiest when she was surrounded by her kids, grand kids and great-grand kids.

Rhoda is survived by her son, Tommy Stanley and wife, Dianne, of Medford; her daughter, Joyce Whiting and husband, H.I., of LaGrange; and her son, David Stanley and his wife, Vicky, of Howland. She is also survived by five grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, plus several step grandchildren and great-step grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Rhoda was predeceased by her husband, Carlton; her mother and father; her brothers, Calvin and Clayton Davis; and her sisters, Janette Dixon and Betty Starbird. She will be deeply missed by everyone that knew and loved her and were able to share their life with her and Carlton at their home in LaGrange and camp at Boyd Lake. We would like to thank the doctors and staff at St. Joseph Hospital, Bangor, for all their kind, skilled and compassionate care they gave to her and also to us through this past week. They did everything they could possibly do to keep her here with us.

Funeral services will be held 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, at Clay Funeral Home, 7 Lee Road, Lincoln, with visitation and viewing starting 1 p.m. Interment will be after the service at Hillcrest Cemetery, LaGrange. Please join us afterward at Stacie and DJ Martin's home, 262 Medford Road, LaGrange, to share memories and refreshments. Those who wish may sign an online register and leave written condolences at www.clayfuneralhome.com.
