Obituary: STOUT, CUELLA

Cuella Sherratt Dalton Stout1922 ~ 2013LAYTON, UTAHCuella Sherratt Dalton Stout born May 16, 1922 to John and Mary Sherratt of Cedar City, UT passed away April 2, 2013 at Apple Village Assisted Living, Layton, UT after a long bout with old age. She was known for "mothering" her nine brothers and sisters who were also her playmates since they lived out on the ranch far away from town. Brothers and Sisters who survive her are Orlon Sherratt, Elaine MacRae, Bonnie Deem, and Robert Sherratt. She loved to sing, participating in her school choir and later leading the LDS Sociable groups in song on their bus trips and adventures. She loved to write what was in her heart and was so proud when a story she wrote about her grandson, Adam Roberts, was used for the Friend magazine in 1988. For years she decorated cakes for special family occasions and taught others how to do it too. While traveling with her husband Don's Air Force group she held positions in several LDS auxiliaries simultaneously and helped to create LDS church branches and get chapels built where there were none in the South. She lead Girl Scout and Cub Scout groups and was even in charge of the base Bible School at Altus, Oklahoma for a while where she was recognized as a woman of great faith. She was the ward photographer for the Bonneville ward when she lived in Salt Lake City and was also the copier fixer for the ward when Bishop Joseph B. Wirthlin was bishop.Her dream of becoming a nurse became a reality when she went to Trade Tech in Salt Lake City (now Salt Lake Community College) to become an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) after the death of her first husband Donald A. Dalton. She practiced at LDS Hospital in the 1960's and early 1970's. It took eight years for Lyman Stout to convince her to marry him and they traveled together as Rock Hounds, seeing much of the USA and attending LDS temples wherever they went. After his death she would take groups of people with her every morning to the temple. She loved her family and the gospel of Jesus Christ and would take numerous photographs of anyone who came her way (everyone was family). She was preceded in death by her first love Donald Adams Dalton of Parowan, UT who blessed her with four surviving children in their Air Force travel; Donald Michael Dalton, Carl Paul Dalton, Jennifer Christine Leavitt, and Laura Jean Roberts. Her second love, Lyman F. Stout who blessed her with his five children also preceded her in death, as did his sons Frank and Wesley Stout. Marrie S. Adams, Allen Stout, and Mark Stout survive her as do many beloved grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren from all of her children.Funeral services will be held Monday, April 8, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. with a viewing prior at 9:30 a.m., at the Metcalf Mortuary Chapel, 288 W.
