Patricia K. Stanton


Patricia K. Stanton, 79, of Walton, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, June 5, 2020, surrounded by her loving family at the Post-Acute Medical Specialty Hospital of Wilkes-Barre.

Born on April 12, 1941 in Shavertown, she was a daughter of the late Eli and Olive Bryden Reynolds.

Pat was the glue that held the family together. She loved her family dearly, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to cook and sharing a delicious, home cooked meal always brought the family together. Christmas was especially important to Pat because it was a special day to celebrate and be around her beloved family. Memorial Day, Pat could be found at Walton or Franklin cemeteries lovingly placing her beautiful potted plants at the graves of her family and friends she missed so much. Pat was an avid bowler, loved hummingbirds, enjoyed traveling with her husband Junie to visit their many close family and friends and she loved to spot sharp-looking cars around town. Her favorite car was a Ford Bronco or anything else that caught her eye. In Pat’s eyes Junie could do no wrong. No matter what issues they had over the years they always worked things out. Pat was a former member of the Plymouth Church in Walton. She will be dearly missed by all who had the opportunity to know this wonderful woman.

Survivors include her beloved husband and best friend, Clayton “Junie” Stanton Jr. of Walton; devoted children Mark Eckert of Walton, Tina Stanton of Walton, Amy Stanton of Walton and Crystal Stanton (Valarie Moore) of Walton; brother Alan “Tink” Reynolds (Cathy) of Walton; sisters Gloria “Betty” Thomson and Barbara Wormuth (Ron); grandchildren Garrett Eckert (Beth), Kyle Eckert (Lynn), Brett Eckert (Nichole), Chasity Eckert, Tanner Eckert, Chad Conway (Lisa), Christopher Conway (Lisa), Cody Conway (Jamie), Chelsee and Caleb; great-grandchildren CeCe, GW, Kyla, Brayden, Aubrey, Harper, Anthony, Austin, Bryden, Dustin, Devin, Caleb, Belle, Tristan and Kaident and her very special canine companion for many loving years, Milo. Pat is also survived by 10 grand dogs and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. 

Besides her parents, Pat is predeceased by her brother Marty Reynolds.

Calling hours, to which relatives and friends are invited to attend, will take place on Friday, June 12, from 3-7 p.m. at New Hope Community Church, 45 Stockton Avenue, Walton. Calling hours will take place outside the church; social distancing guidelines must be met, and face masks are required. A graveside service to celebrate Pat’s life will be held on Saturday, June 13, at 2 p.m. at Walton Cemetery, 55 Fancher Avenue, with Pastor Larry Light officiating. Again, social distancing guidelines must be met, and face masks are required. The celebration of Pat’s wonderful life will continue following the graveside service outside at T.A.’s Place in Walton where snacks will be provided.

Memorial donations in Pat’s memory may be made to the Delhi Animal Hospital, 15891 NY-28, Delhi, NY 13753. Dr. Evans took wonderful care of Pat’s four legged friends for many years and during her illness always called to ask how Pat was doing, and that was much appreciated by the Stanton family.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Courtney Funeral Home, Walton. To leave a message for Pat’s family visit the online tribute at
