Betty Stanley, age 80, of Ewing, VA, passed away on February 14, 2022 at Claiborne Medical Center with her family by her side. She was born on August 29, 1941 in Ewing, VA.

She was a beautiful, strong, loving mother and grandmother, who is irreplaceable. She devoted her life to her family, making countless sacrifices in order to better the lives of her children. She loved her family unconditionally without any expectations in return. With her every smile she brought happiness. She was an inspiration to us all. To the world, she was a mother, but to her family, she was the absolute world.
