In Loving Memory
Una Stout was born Dec. 17, 1914, and died Dec. 19, 2010, two days after her 96th birthday, at Morton County Care Center, Elkhart, KS. She was born in Hooker, Ok, to Gilbert Stanton and Sallie Ann (Mitchell) Wiggains.
She graduated from Hooker High School and attended college at Panhandle State. Una and her husband, the love of her life, Malcolm Earnest lived in El Paso, Tx, Duke, OK, Dallas, TX, then finally Oklahoma City where they moved in 1955. She worked for Aetna Insurance for over 25 years, spending the last several years traveling and organizing group coverage. After Malcolm passed away in 1967, Una became more involved with her church, Linwood Methodist, serving as Sunday School teacher, United Methodist Women, and volunteering at the church in many other capacities. As a servant of the Lord, she took her purpose on earth seriously and spent her life helping others. She said everything she had was “on loan from God.” She was very active in various community organizations including the Oklahoma City Literacy Council. Una was petite, but she was mighty! Una had a special gift for fashion, cooking and raising Dobermans, but more importantly she cared passionately for her family, friends, and especially Jesus.
Survivors include granddaughter, Cara Gilmore and husband, John of Edmond, OK; great grandchildren, Austin Stout, Christian Gilmore and John Gilmore, Jr., Edmond, OK; and daughter-in-law, Jeannie Cook, Oklahoma City, OK.
She was preceded in death by two sons, Larry Malcolm and Terry Ray Stout.
