STANLEY, Miriam L Stanley, 89, a resident of Montgomery, Alabama, passed away July 4th 2017. She was born June 6th 1928 to the late John Edward, and Annie Mae Avinger Long, and was affectionately known as “Chim” by her family members. Visitation will be held at Alabama Heritage Funeral Home on Saturday, July 8, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., followed by a Graveside Service in Alabama Heritage Cemetery. She was preceded in death by her husband Holley M Stanley. Jr, her siblings Edna Long Andrews, John Edward Long. Jr, William J Long, Margie Long Hudson, Daniel B Long, and Jack C Long. She is survived by her brother, Alton H Long, of Birmingham, Alabama. She is also survived by her three children, Janice Stanley, Steven M Stanley (Sue), Kim Stanley Meyer (Mark) and three grandchildren, Jake Meyer, Megan Stanley, and Maddie Stanley.

She retired from the Alabama High School Athletic Association after 18 years of service, and was a long-time member of Forest Avenue/Aldersgate United Methodist Church. She loved to spend time with her family at her place on Lake Jordan, and was a shining example of southern hospitality, oftentimes cooking good ole southern dinners for her family. She was deeply loved, and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Special thanks go out to Virginia Hails, a caregiver from Home Instead Senior Care, and Amedisys Hospice. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Aldersgate UMC.

Prayers for you all. Mrs. Stanley was a lovely lady every time I saw her and so was your dad. I remember taking my kids by on Halloween when they were little.

I am so sad to hear of Miriam's passing. I have such fond memories of your Mom and Dad.. skiing on the Lake and the fun ski shows. I am flying out to Wisconsin Saturday morning at 0630 or I would be there. I miss seeing you all.
