I hardly know how to express my feelings about Shirley death. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor to the Poschadel family. Later she was again a wonderful help and friend as Chris and I were married and moved to Centre Hall. I (Dottie) will always remember her spectacular gardens, African Violets and the tennis we played. She will always live in my heart and soul. Peace Dottie and Chris Roberts

Dear Mr. Stanton, I just heard the sad news. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Thank you for giving me the chance to get to know you and Mrs. Stanton. In my mind, I envision
Mrs. Stanton with a huge smile on her face, piloting her Piper Cub towards her next great adventure...

Mrs. Stanton, I can picture you happily tending God's lovely gardens. You surely will enjoy doing that.

Tears came to my eyes as I read the obituary in the CDT. Shirley Stanton (Mrs. Stanton!!!!) was the first person I met in the College of Business Administration's Boucke Building at Penn State when I arrived on campus to begin studies for my MS (Business-Accounting) degree in 1960. As an International student from South Africa I felt quite insecure as I faced an uncertain future, and Shirley's pleasant, supportive approach to mentoring students made a significant contribution to setting my mind at ease.
I returned to South Africa after graduation in 1961, and then came back to Penn State for the Ph.D program in 1964. And what a pleasant surprise it was to see Shirley still at work as a mentor for the CBA's students - in the same pleasant, supportive manner as I had observed in 1960/61.
I shall never forget Shirley Stanton. She was a lovely person, and a beautiful human being.
