Betty Lou Stout, age 90 of Joplin, passed away Saturday, November 14, 2020, at Mercy Hospital, following a long lived life.

Betty was born on September 12, 1930 in Bolivar, MO, the daughter of the late Otto and Adrian (Churchman) Cossins. She graduated from Bolivar High School. She attended Joplin Junior College. Betty married the love of her life Willard Stout on March 28, 1948 in Bolivar, MO. Together they were blessed with three daughters. After moving to Joplin, she had various jobs working for the Social Security Office, the IRS, Channel 16, and Beltone Hearing. In 1978, she and her husband, Willard, founded Pizza by Stout. She attended St. Paul’s Church. She was also a member of the Joplin Women’s Club, Soroptimist International of Joplin, Beta Sigma Phi Sorority and Hui Investment Club. She loved playing cards and was a member of the 99 Club, the Hand & Foot Club, and the neighborhood bunco group. We will greatly miss our very loving, personable and classy Betty.

She was preceded in death by her husband Willard Stout on February 15, 2009; and her daughter Gayle Diane Stout on December 5, 2007.

Betty is survived by two daughters, Joy Stout-Monahan and husband Mike, Joplin, MO and Cynthia Kay Stout-Aguis and companion Greg Holt, Joplin; four grandchildren, Casey Cusick, Stacey Agius-Carter and husband Justin, Nicole Cusick, and Carly Agius and companion Gerhard Heilman; and four great-grandchildren, Anniston, Frankie, Johnnie, and Otto.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Mercy ER and the Joplin Gardens for their care of Betty.

A Graveside Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. Friday at Osborne Memorial Cemetery. Pastor Aaron Brown will officiate.

A Celebration of Betty’s Life will be held at a later date when we are free from the Coronavirus concerns. Memorial contributions may be given to the Joplin Humane Society in care of the mortuary.

Arrangements are under the direction of Mason-Woodard Mortuary & Crematory.

Dear Family of a great lady. She added much to the lives of many in Joplin. I know you are sad but feel proud of the kind of woman she was in life.

My condolences to Joy and the entire Stout family. Your parents took a big chance opening a restaurant and you all worked hard to see that it thrived and stayed a success. That restaurant was an important hub for Joplin; it was the place for the gathering of friends, families, classmates and business associates and that contribution to the community has hard to replace. My thoughts are with you as you grieve and celebrate the life of a dear and hardworking lady. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Debby Woodin.
