Geraldine Stout Stanfield
Born of Henry Stout and Dona Lumpkins Stout on January 10th, 1923.
Married Jeff Travis Stanfield April 24th, 1948 in the First Baptist Church of North Hampton, Massachusetts.
Preceded in death by her parents, sisters Vivian Stout Deloney, Lucille Stout Helms, Trula Stout Shipman, Jewel Stout Goolsby, Lurlene Stout Harmon, and her brother Henry Stout. Survived by her sons Henry (wife Jane), Luther (fiance' Mary), and Charles, ten grandchildren and numerous loving nieces and nephews.

She was a beloved member of the Tom, Oklahoma, First Baptist Church. "Gerry", as she was known, was an amazing woman of towering strength to the end of her days. She did not suffer fools gladly in her youth, but grew as an adult to become a mentor to all people within her influence as a schoolteacher and a civic leader, always encouraging others and helping them to find paths to achieve their best potential. She was a retired educator from the States of Tennessee and Oklahoma. She was a member of the Tennessee State Education Association, the Oklahoma State Education Association, The National Education Association, and the Oklahoma Retired Educators Association. She also served terms as President of the Delta Kappa Gamma International Society, the Twentieth Century Study Club and the Idabel Oklahoma Educators Associaion. She represented her fellow teachers to the State Legislature of Oklahoma. She served on the Board of Directors of the Southeastern Oklahoma Library System, the Kiamichi Youth Shelter, the Kiamichi Drug and Alcohol Treatment Center, and lastly the Residents Council of McKendree Village until her age no longer allowed her to meet her own high standards of performance.

She is missed by all in her passing, but will live on in the hearts and minds of all who were fortunate enough to know her. We are diminished by her loss.
Services will be held 2pm Sunday, March 29th at Hermitage Funeral Home with Wendell Poole officiating. Visitation will be Sunday, March 29th starting at 1 until service time.
