Aida D Stainback

March 20, 1926 - May 16, 2023 Oxford, PA | Age 97 Loving Aunt, Great Aunt and Friend.

Aida D Stainback went home to be with her family on May 16, 2023 at Ware Presbyterian Village where she had made her home since 2018. She was born on March 20, 1926, recently celebrating ninety-seven years! Her husband, Thomas Stainback preceded her in death in 1998.

She is survived by many nieces, nephews as well as great and great great relatives.

After her husband’s passing, she chose to return to Kennett Square to continue the remainder of her life living with her brother in her childhood home until her move to Steward Place at Ware Presbyterian Village.

Aida attended Kennett High School and graduated from Gaucher College. After her college graduation she worked for the Delaware Social Security Administration until her marriage at age thirty-one. She enjoyed living in many places throughout her life and she and her husband enjoyed traveling extensively with the opportunity to live in Kenya, Africa.

Her hobbies included knitting, playing tennis, going to the YMCA, volunteering at the Encore shop as well as the Kennett Garden Club where she made many acquaintances and friends along her journey. She supported many charitable organizations throughout her lifetime. She also loved all animals and nature, and was never without a pet to dote upon and love.

Aunt Edee as she was lovingly called enjoyed all her extended family. She especially found joy when she was around the younger generations. She was witty, always stylishly dressed and viewed her age as just a number.

She will be missed by all who knew her.

  1. Edee was like a second mother to me. I met her when I was six years old in Jersey City, and she and Tom lived in the same apartment building as my family. I spent many wonderful hours with her and Tom. In her later years, I would visit Edee and Leonard in Kennett Square. There will never be another like her. My condolences to her family.

  3. I feel so utterly privileged to have known Aida and more importantly to call her my friend. Aida was a beautiful soul. She was sharp, quick witted, physically fit, and loving. If you knew Aida, you knew pure joy. She loved to entertain, care for animals, take care of Leonard, and show off her style. Even in her late 80’s and early 90’s, she out-exercised those 30 years her junior at the YMCA…even doing a 2 minute plank with ease.

    I know that her husband and Leonard were waiting for her with open arms.
    I will miss you my friend.
