Eunice Lorraine (Stout) Templeton, 89, our beloved mother and sister went to be with the Lord on Jan. 22, 2016, in Las Cruces, New Mexico. She was born on July 14, 1926, in Copen, West Virginia to Warder and Virgie (McCoy) Stout.

Lorraine came to Alamogordo in the early 1950s. She came to be a familiar face in town as she worked as a waitress for 30 years at the Desert Aire Restaurant where she also was hostess for fraternal clubs like Rotary, Lions, etc. for their weekly lunch meetings. Lorraine also was secretary for the "Alamo Outcast" bowling league for 25 years.
She missed the mountains of West Virginia and loved to fish. She and Howard took their motor home to Silver Lake almost every weekend to catch mountain air and trout.

Survivors include her son, Charles Templeton of Alamogordo, N.M.; two brothers, Donald Stout and wife Mary of Charleston, W.
