She married the love of her life, Henry Stanton, on Aug. 6, 1952, and together they moved to Moab in 1968, where they raised three beautiful girls, Wanda, Barbara, and Amy. They were loving grandparents to three grandchildren.
Olene was blessed as a great-grandmother and was looking forward to meeting her newest great-grandchild in April.
She was a dedicated member of the First Baptist Church and attended services every Sunday. She was an active and enthusiastic part of the Grand Center, where she enjoyed quilting, playing cards, doing Tai Chi and socializing with her many friends. She could always be seen greeting people as they arrived for lunch. Her smile and infectious laugh will be greatly missed.
Olene was preceded in death by her husband, Henry Stanton; her son, Joel Stanton; and her daughter, Barbara Ann Denney.
Olene’s family would like to invite those who knew and loved her to graveside services at Sunset Memorial Cemetery on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 2 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Grand Center, 435-259-6623.
