     Danette Stanley, age 68, of Flora, Illinois, and formerly of Clay City, passed away Thursday, July 21, 2022, at Ascension St. Vincent Hospital in Evansville, Indiana.

     A funeral ceremony celebrating the life of Danette will begin at 10 a.m. Monday, July 25, 2022, at Frank & Bright Funeral Home in Flora.  Interment will follow in Clay City Cemetery.  Visitation will be from 5 until 7 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.  Memorial donations are suggested to Clay County Cancer Crusaders, and will be accepted through the funeral home.  To share a memory or condolence, visit:
