Obituary Condolences

Sept. 29, 1915 - Jan. 23, 2008
Earla Margaret Stanger, 92, of Huntsville, formally of Phillipsburg, N.J., died Wednesday at Big Springs Specialty Care Center in Huntsville, Ala., of Alzheimer's disease.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Russell and Merry Thatcher; husband Joseph Stanger; son Richard Stanger; brother William Thatcher; and sister Nancy Nemeth.
She is survived by her son, Paul Stanger and daughter-in-law Tinca, of Huntsville, Ala.; daughter Earla Mabus and son-in-law Gordon, of Virginia; brother Harvey Thatcher, of Nazareth, Pa.; two sisters, Maida Kutzman, of Alpha, N.J., and Lorraine Alessio, of Phillipsburg, N.J.; two grandsons, Kevin Mabus and Russell Mabus, of Virginia; and several nieces and nephews.
Earla was a 1932 graduate of Phillipsburg (N.J.) High School, a Red Cross volunteer at Easton Hospital in Easton, Pa., a PTA president, and a librarian. She was proficient in crocheting, sewing and knitting, and an avid reader. She was a great Braves baseball fan.
At one time or another, she enjoyed living in New Jersey, New Mexico, Texas, Saudi Arabia and Germany. Her travels took her to Europe, Egypt, Mexico and China. It surely was a full and interesting life. Her family and friends will sorely miss her.
Spry Funeral Home of Huntsville is assisting the family.
