YORKTOWN - Anne B. Stanfield, 71, passed away in her home Saturday, May 23, 2009 after a courageous two-year fight with cancer.

A native of Victoria, she was a resident of the Peninsula for 60 years. She was a life member of Phi Kappa Delta. She had worked at First National Bank and Mary Immaculate Hospital, but her proudest accomplishments in life were that of a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.

She had been a faithful member of Chestnut Memorial United Methodist Church, where she was active in the food pantry and had been one of the founding members of the USDA Program for Berkley Village, along with her husband, Gene, and former missions director, Judy Teagle.





She is survived by her childhood sweetheart since sixth grade and husband of 52 years, Harry E. "Gene" Stanfield; one daughter, Abby Stanfield of Yorktown; one son, Brad Stanfield and wife, Denise of Yorktown; three grandchildren, Heather Lauren, Brittany Leigh, and Taylor Nicole Stanfield; many cousins and other family; and also a number of dear friends, including her devoted friend since high school, June Sharp.

The family will receive friends from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, May 25, at Peninsula Funeral Home. A funeral service will be conducted at 2 p.m. Tuesday, at Chestnut Memorial United Methodist Church, with the Rev. Larry Edmonds officiating. Burial will follow in Peninsula Memorial Park.

The family requests expressions of sympathy take the form of memorial donations to Chestnut Memorial United Methodist Church's Food Pantry, 1024 Harpersville Rd., Newport News, VA 23601, or to Peninsula Cancer Institute of Williamsburg, 120 King's Way #3100, Williamsburg, VA 23185.

Peninsula Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Thinking of Eloisa today (mine and Abby's nickname for her mom) That high pitched laugh. The way she talked to her cats like they were people and still wondering why she never let us cook in the kitchen! Miss you.~ Joan

Come, Ye Disconsolate

Words by Thomas Moore; alt. by Thomas Hastings
Music by Samuel Webbe

Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish.
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."

Here see the bread of life; waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
