In memory of
Valena M. "Val" Stoner
Valena M. 'Val' Stoner Known for adventurous spirit; great-great-grandmother Mrs. Valena "Val"Stoner (nee Elmore) died peacefully on Nov. 22, 2019, in Mt. Arlington, N.J., just shy of her 100th birthday. Visiting in the Prout Funeral Home, ( www.proutfuneralhome.com ), 370 Bloomfield Ave., Verona, N.J., will be on Tuesday, Dec. 3, from 4 to 7 p.m. Services will be held in the Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church, Oak Ridge, N.J., on Wednesday, Dec. 4, at 11 a.m., followed by burial in the church cemetery. Born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Val lived on Lake Swannanoa in Oak Ridge and Fox Hills in Rockaway, N.J., before moving to Mt. Arlington in 2017. She also greatly enjoyed time with family at former homes in South Lake Tahoe, Nev., and Singer Island, Fla. A loving homemaker, she was active in her community, serving as past president of the Union Township Junior Woman's Club. She was also very active in the Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church, serving on session, as an elder and organizing and assisting with the rummage sales, which was a year-long undertaking. She served as vice moderator of the Palisades Presbytery and attended the General Assembly twice. Val had an adventurous spirit as she traveled the world with her late husband, Roy, and enthusiastically skied and played tennis well into her 80's. She was predeceased by her husband of 67 years, Marvin Leroy "Roy" Stoner; her parents, Burl Buford Elmore and Cora Mae (nee Cook) Elmore; and her siblings, Elaine Nelson and Bill Elmore. Val is survived by her loving children, Maureen (Jack) Wiswall, Skip (Linda) Stoner and Doug ( Barb) Stoner; cherished grandchildren, Courtney, Matthew, Kyle, Kristin, Kara, Todd, Kimberly, Brett, Ryan and Kate; adoring great-grandchildren, Perry, Alexis, Fatima, Abbas, Sadiq, Zainab, Zephyr, Parker, Willem, Riley, Jaxon, Cason, Aiden, Brianna, William, Cody, Anna, Ben, Isabella, Sam, Jake, Abbey, and Danny, and really awesome great-great-grandchildren, Kadija, Amina, and Anakin. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church (Memorial Fund), P.O. Box 302, Oak Ridge, N.J. 07438, in Val's memory would be appreciated.
