Clarence B. Stoner, age 100, of Ephrata, passed away peacefully on February 6, 2023, at Fairmount Homes.

Born on November 9, 1922, he was the son of the late Alvan P. and Sadie Stoner.

A lifetime farmer, he was preceded in death by his first wife of 60 years, Martha (Good), in 2004, and by his second wife of 13 years, Irene (Martin), in 2019. As a child, Clarence was a member of Metzler’s Mennonite Church, and after moving to Jonestown, Lebanon County, in 1951, he was a member at Meckville Mennonite Church. He enjoyed dairy farming. In semi-retirement, he sold Jacques Seed and bought heifers for Heifer International. Family vacations were clamming in the Delaware Bay or overnights at a mountain cabin. He enjoyed weeks in Florida each winter until health dictated otherwise. Some of his favorite times were enjoying the camaraderie of family at summer picnics and holiday dinners.
