Martha B Stout passed away unexpectedly on February 8, 2020, at the age of 82. She had been rushed to the hospital two days earlier after being found unconscious in her home. She died peacefully surrounded by her family.
Martha was born on March 9th, 1937, in Bristol, Virginia, to Will and Ocie Triplett. She married Jack Stout on February 26, 1955 and they moved to Boise in 1958, where Jack was stationed at Mountain Home Air Force base. She was a dedicated and loyal employee, spending most of her career working for Murphy Finance and AVCO Financial Services as a loan officer and assistant manager. She retired early from AVCO to spend more time with her family.
Martha was kind, generous, frugal, gracious, thoughtful and funny. She loved vacationing in Florida and going on cruises with Jack. One of their most favorite trips was to the Northeast with her niece, seeing New York City, Niagara Falls and touring through the Amish country. Her favorite hobbies were working puzzles (for hours on end), making cards and scrapbooks, and playing pinochle. She loved spending time with family and friends and nothing would make her face light up more than seeing her two great granddaughters, Kelly and Emerson. She was immensely proud of her family and would brag about them any chance she got.
Family was incredibly important to Martha and she loved her family and friends more than anything else. She is preceded in death by her husband Jack, her parents, seven sisters and a brother. She is survived by her daughter Jackie, grandson Bradley (Tiffany), granddaughter Nicole (Anthony), great-granddaughters Kelly and Emerson, three sisters and one brother and several nieces and nephews.
A memorial will be held at Cloverdale Funeral Home at 11am on Saturday, February 22nd, with a celebration of Martha’s life to follow afterward. Martha will be reunited with her husband, Jack, at the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery at a later date. Jack and Martha will spend their 65th wedding anniversary together this year on February 26th.
