Maria “Leni” Stallard- Abington, Virginia


Maria Stallard, affectionately known as Leni, age 87, passed away at Johnston Memorial Hospital in Abingdon, Virginia, on Sunday morning, April 5, 2020.  Ms. Stallard was born on June 18, 1932, in Kempten, Allgau, Germany to the late Maximilian Joseph and Maria Garhammer Keller.

Ms. Stallard was raised in Germany and resided there until she married the late Hubert Allen Stallard in 1954, and she became a citizen of the United States.  From Germany, they moved to Pound, Virginia, and later to Salisbury, Maryland.  After she retired from Wells-Fargo Bank as a loan officer, they moved back to Abingdon, Virginia.

Ms. Stallard was incredibly gifted in all things domestic including gardening, sewing, crocheting, and knitting.

In addition to her parents and her husband, Ms. Stallard was preceded in death by two sisters, Gertraud Keller Detzel and Maximilie Karin Keller Miller.

Those left to cherish Ms. Stallard’s memory are six sister-in-laws: Eunice Dotson of Brook Park, Ohio, Georgie South (Don) of Independence, Missouri, Dorothy Kelly of Kent, Ohio, Geraldine Hurt (Robert) of Myrtle Beach, South Caroline, Norma Stallard of Pound, Virginia, and Anna Dotson (Buddy) of Defiance, Ohio; a multitude of nieces and nephews; and her good friends George and Elizabeth Schaefer of Salisbury, Maryland.

Ms. Stallard will be interred with her husband at Mountain Home National Cemetery in Johnson City, Tennessee, in a private ceremony.  No other services are scheduled at this time.

The family and friends of Ms. Stallard would like to extend a heartfelt and sincere “thank you” to the staff at Commonwealth Senior Living and Johnston Memorial Hospital, for the care and kindness that was shared with her.

We will miss our precious beautiful Aunt Leni. So many wonderful and happy memories at Aunt Leni and Uncle Hubert home in Maryland and Virginia. Aunt Leni was very talented in sewing , crochet, knitting and needle point. She loved working in her yard and gardening. She loved her poodles. But the love of her life was Uncle Hubert. She was so good to our grandparents Richard and Goldie Stallard which was her mother and father in law. We were truly blessed to visit with her and see her on her birthday at the nursing home . Always enjoyed taking her to eat and visiting her when she still had her home. She so enjoyed visiting us here in Nyrtle Beach and had a wonderful relationship with all her dustier in-laws. She was a very loving Aunt and always dressed beautiful and her hair was always perfect. We will miss you so much. Thank you to all who helped and caring for her at the nursing home and hospital in Abingdon, Virginia. Thank to Joyce Millsap who looked after and cared fir our Aunt. Our hearts are broken that we can but gather together as a family at this time because of the corona virus. Praying for all of our family. Test in Oea e Aunt Leni. Until we see you again.
