Allison Stanley

December 30, 1952 - July 21, 2023

This is from the Stanley family (Stephen, Gena, Jamie, and John)

With an emptiness and void in my heart, I have some sad news, Allison passed away last Friday after a long and courageous battle with MS.

You all held her up when she didn't have the strength to do it herself. She said on many occasions she could feel your love and relied on your emotional support during her many difficult struggles with the effects of MS.

Allison wishes you to remember her as she was on the day of the 2016 Reunion held at Garfield Park and at the Holly Smith block party.

We will all miss her and her inspirational posts. The keeper of the butterfly is now free to spread her wings and fly high.

We are planning a celebration of life sometime after labor day and will be posting the time and date.

Rather than communicate through Facebook, please contact me at

Love to all,

Stephen Stanley

Class of 1967

Allison: Thanks for longtime memories and more recently sharing Monarch's, milkweed seeds and your framing of Steve Bohannon's artwork of me grilling! I hope that your transition to a time of no pain is heavenly. And say hi for all of us if you cross paths with Steve and Buddy. ❤️🙏

You will be missed Allison.  You were one of the few people in high school I can remember being nice to me.  The world is a sadder place with out you in it, but I know heaven is rejoicing.

It always saddens me to hear the passing of a friend.  I pray everyone has accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior.  Then I know I can see you all in heaven.  Praying for you all in these difficult times. Love Ya, Lisa

Not only did we go to high school together, but we grew up together. Spending time with Allison and the entire Stanley family as a kid was such a great experience. My mom and Mrs. Stanley, aka DJ, were the best of friends and thanks to that friendship, we got to spend loads of time with Allison and her brothers. 

Looking back now, now I sound like an old man, it just seems like yesterday that we were on campus attending classes, hanging out during the break or at lunchtime. No idea what the future would bring for any of us. As the years started to go by we saw reality in the loss of classmates, friends, and spouses. Allison was always one of those who looked on the bright side of life, even when she was fighting her battle. Nothing negative. Nothing sour. Nothing that said, "Poor me." Nothing but a shining example. I will miss you and your smile.
