HIGHTSTOWN - Mary Jane Stout, 64, of Hightstown, passed away on Dec. 28, 2012, peacefully in her sleep to the sounds of her favorite Oldies tunes.
Predeceased by her father Albert Eugene Kramer; her sister, Jeanie Ann Magee; and grandson, Nicholas P. Dollard. She leaves behind her mother, Alice Kramer; her husband, Howard "Rat" Stout; her children, Dawn "Dillar" Dollard, Daniel "Yo" Stout, and Bill Stout; five grandchildren, Heather Dollard, Cassie Dollard, Victoria Dollard, Alyssa Stout, and Andrew Stout, and many more family members who love her very much.
Born on Feb. 2, 1948, Mary grew up on dairy farm in Hightstown, she enjoyed spending her time ice skating on Petty Lake. Little did she know, her favorite childhood hobby would later introduce her to the love of her life, Howard E. Stout. Mary "G-Mizzle", was married to Howard "Thug-Pa", on Nov. 14, 1970; they were married for 42 years. She worked as the grounds supervisor for Meadow Lakes Senior Living for 38 years. She enjoyed socializing with co-workers and the Meadow Lakes residents, caring for each of them as if they were family. Her knowledge of plants was vast and each garden she touched flourished.
Her hobbies included traveling, fishing, yard-saling, and planning for the next family get-together. She'd always be the last one to arrive as she was determined to get everyone there, even if that meant picking them up herself. She was truly the glue that held the family together.
Mary Jane Stout; the loving wife, the caring daughter, the nurturing mother, the adventurous grandma, the fun aunt, the best friend, led her life with her heart. Not a day went by without her doing her "good deed of the day," always encouraging those around her to do the same. A woman known for her over-sized Hawaiian shirts, magical personality, and quirky, fun-loving way of life, has left an imprint on all of our hearts that will never be forgotten, and we will all miss her very very much.
The great Bargain Outlet in heaven better be prepared. Mary Jane Stout has arrived.
