Lenore (Thompson) StoutJanuary 1, 1939 ~ February 8, 2017 (age 78)
Lenore Ann Thompson Stout was born January 1, 1939 in Pittsburgh, the only child of the late Kenneth V. and Lanomi Baldwin Thompson. She died February 8, 2017 at home surrounded by her children.
Lenore graduated from Bentleyville High School in 1956. In later years, she eagerly anticipated the class reunions and loved reminiscing with her classmates. She attended the Grace Martin Business School after high school and worked as the executive secretary to the Vice President of Alcoa before starting a family. In 1983 she completed her Nursing degree at the Washington Hospital School of Nursing and went on to work as a home health care nurse for Centerville Clinics.
Lenore was a lifelong resident of Bentleyville, owner of the Thompson-Marodi Funeral Home until 2015, and belonged to the First Presbyterian Church since 1949. The church was an important part of her life and it is where she celebrated many milestones. Her high school sweetheart, J. Barry Stout, proposed to her and they were married on July 18, 1959 in that church. Lenore and J. Barry celebrated their 56th anniversary together before his death on October 29, 2016.
Her faith, community, and especially her family were the most important parts of her life. She was a dedicated and loving wife and mother, and she was known to many for her sweet and generous nature.
She is survived by six children, Lisa Stout-Bashioum (Robert) and Lori Jansante (Dion) of Bentleyville, Sharee Stout (Douglas) of Pittsburgh, John Barry Thompson Stout (Jodi) of Kansas City, Missouri, Shannon Hemmingson (Brian) of McMurray, and Bethany Stout (Thomas) of Pittsburgh; 15 grandchildren Jonathan, Joshua, Brynne, Samuel, William and Benjamin Bashioum, Derek and Jason Jansante, Ayli and Fia Davidson, Jacob and Eli Hemmingson, Tiernan and Rhys Jenkins and Noah Stock; brothers-in-law William Stout (Saundra), Gary Stout (Donna), James Rupert, sisters-in-law Cindy Carmella (Ron), Diann Stout, Betty Stout, and several nieces and nephews. In addition to family, she will be greatly missed by her best friend Yvonne Wildman and her committed caregivers, Jean, Lacey, Leanne, Shellie, Dori, Gayle, Mary Ann, and LuAnn.
Preceding her in death in addition to her husband and parents were in-laws T. Philip Stout, Jean Stout, James A. Stout, Jane S. Rupert and several aunts and uncles.
