Aline Dickens Stanford

December 22, 1934 — July 27, 2017

Aline Dickens Stanford, 82, went to her heavenly home on July 27, 2017. A firm belief in God and family supported her throughout her life and ultimately gave her peace and comfort.

Aline was born to the late Charles Hubert and Daisy Burke Dickens in Burnet, Texas, on Dec. 22, 1934. She was brought up in a Christian home and had a strong faith in God. As a child, she loved the many slumber parties with her girlfriends and often recounted these fun activities. After graduating from Burnet High School, she married John Allred Wood.

Aline was blessed with three children: Dallas, David, and Danette. Aline worked many years in the nursing field. Later in life she married the late Wayne Stanford.

Aline was doting and caring, always having time to brag on her grandchildren and love on her great-grandchildren. She was a simple woman with no frills, spending her final years a short distance from where she was born. Aline wasn’t afraid to state her opinion and did so often! She is dearly missed by her loved ones, who celebrate the fact that she is at peace with her Lord.

Aline is survived by her children Dallas Wood and friend Dawn Gidley and Danette Seiler and husband, Jerry; her grandsons Jeffrey and wife Denise (Binky) and Christopher. Granddaughters Julie, and Kim and husband Kelly; her great grandchildren Sky, Storm, Hudson, Madison, Lincoln, Jaden, and Judson. She is also survived by her brother Bob and wife Gaye Dickens and sister Chick Adelle Wood, and sister-in-law Nancy Dickens, along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She is preceded in death by her parents, brothers Bubba and James, and son David Wood. Aline was buried at the Post Mountain Cemetery after a memorial service at the First Baptist Church in Burnet on July 29 with Pastor Doug Lindley officiating the service. The family thanks you for your prayers and condolences. Memorial contributions may be made to Christian Women’s Job Corps in care of First Baptist Church in Burnet.
