Birth: Jan. 6, 1911
Death: Sep. 16, 1977
Tuscaloosa County
Alabama, USA

Mother of Sarah and Billy Stanley; sister of Mrs. Goldie Cater, Mrs. Viola Gentry, Mrs. Ona Bell Justice, U. V., Edward and Henry Osmer.
On your Find A Grave Memorial# 53494862, the obituary listed

the survivors' surname incorrectly.

Instead of Osmer, it is Hosmer.

Here is Martha Hosmer Stanley's father's obituary.
