Nadine Lovere Stansbery, age 92, passed away on November 14, 2020 in Kensington,
Maryland. She was born April 28, 1928 in Kansas City, Kansas to Carl Cunningham and Bertha
Nadine graduated from Wyandotte High School, class of 1946. She married William Henry
Arnold Jr. in 1948, with whom she shared two sons, William Henry Arnold III and John Mark
Arnold. Her husband Bill tragically preceded her in death in 1955, when she was 27 years old.
In 1965, she married Alan Lee Stansbery, becoming a loving stepmother to his four children:
Michael Stansbery, Kathleen Cooper Bond, Thomas Stansbery, and Stephan Stansbery. She
worked at Graham Ship-by-Truck for nearly forty years.
A true people-person, Nadine made friends wherever she went - usually within five minutes of
meeting them. Her life was full of fun, whether it was traveling the world with dear friends,
enjoying a day with Alan on Lake Perry, playing cards, or getting to know someone new. She
was an active member of Village Presbyterian Church in Prairie Village, Kansas for nearly sixty
years. Her vibrant spirit brightened the lives of everyone who loved her, and she will be dearly
Nadine was preceded in death by her first husband, William Henry Arnold Jr. in 1955; her
second husband, Alan Lee Stansbery in 1997; and her stepson Thomas Stansbery in 2005. She
is survived by her children and stepchildren: Bill Arnold and wife Lisa; Mark Arnold and wife
Donna; Mike Stansbery and wife Judy; Kathy Cooper Bond and husband Richard; Steve
Stansbery and wife Elise; and Tom Stansbery’s wife Christine. She also leaves nine
grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
