Dorothy Faye Stoner, 98, passed away on July 4, 2020 at her home in Polson, MT with her family surrounding her. Dorothy was born January 24, 1922 in Savage, MT.

An educator and counselor in the Missoula School District from 1964-1980, Dorothy showed care and loyalty toward her students by supporting them and taking a stand for those who needed an ally and mentor. Dorothy had an eye for beauty, and loved to draw, watercolor, and garden. She was a loving mother and grandmother and enjoyed hosting and spending time with family and friends.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, William Gerald Stoner, and survived by her two sons, William Stoner of Polson, MT, and Jon Stoner of Pocatello, ID, and her grandchildren, Kristen, Mari, and James.

A memorial service will be scheduled later this year to commemorate Dorothy’s full life.

I have many fond memories of Dorothy, as she and Bill were good friends of my parents, Vera and Harlan Riese. As a family we got together many times, and I especially remember our stays up at the family home on Flathead Lake. I always remember that Dorothy was a good cook. I think she saw me as a challenge, as I had very little cooking and baking experience. Dorothy took on the task of teaching me how to make bread, and with her help I actually succeeded. I always enjoyed times with your mother, we shared many good times and laughter. I extend my sympathy to all of her family.

Thank you Paula for your memories. Your tribute brought back a story about your mom and mine from 45+ back. Dorothy was walking over to your house to drop something off. It was evening, and Vera was animatedly sweeping off the driveway and talking to herself about plans for the next day's art class for her second graders. Vera didn't notice mom approaching and mom startled her when they were a foot or so apart. Vera whirled around, gasped, and said, "Oh H--l s--t!!" Mom, stunned, sputtered and said, "No, dear, I'm Dorothy!" Thanks again, Will (Bill, Jr.)

Dear Will, John, and family,

We were so saddened to learn of Dorothy's passing. Jim and I hold so many wonderful memories of our shared years together on Tarrs Lane. From vegetable gardening, potluck dinners shared, helping us with our boat, eating Bill's great cookies and sitting in the sunroom sharing stories and laughter, your family will always hold a special place in our hearts. Please know that you have our deepest sympathy.

With love,
Ginni and Jim Lionberger

A year before I moved to Polson my mom passed away. I felt lost without her. Dorothy was one of the first people I met when we moved here and we became fast friends. She shared her love of gardening with me and we would talk for hours about every subject under the sun. Her friendship meant the world to me and was very instrumental in healing my grief. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have known her and will always miss her. Lovingly, Claudia Barry
