Doris Jean (Parker) Stout, better known as “Nana”, left this world peacefully to enter into heaven at the age of 77 on March 8, 2021. She resided in Denton, Texas for the last 7-1/2 years but her heart was always in her hometown of Amarillo, Texas.
Her life celebration will be held on Monday, March 15, 2021 at 1:00 P.M. at Boxwell Brothers Ivy Chapel located at 2800 Paramount Blvd in Amarillo, Texas with Pastor Jim Loper of Cornerstone Church officiating. Viewing will be available during normal business hours on Saturday and Sunday, March 13th and 14th. Visitation with the family will be held on Monday from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. before the service. We would love to hear stories and memories of how she touched your lives. Graveside services will be immediately after the service at Llano Cemetery. Please enter the gates on 27th street.
Doris was born on December 30, 1943 in Vernon, Texas to Dixie Rea and John Raymond Parker. She graduated from Dumas High School in 1962 and moved to Amarillo soon after.
She worked as a senior clerk at SPS Construction Services and retired after 28 years. She has so many wonderful friends that she met during her career and she considered them extended family. The best advice she had was “Find a job you absolutely love going to and it will never feel like work.”
Doris met the love of her life RC Stout and married on October 27, 1967. He preceded her to heaven on December 26, 1982. I know he was waiting at the gates of heaven to welcome her with a big hug and smile!
She is survived by her daughter, Staci Workman and husband Troy of Denton, Texas; her grandchildren, Blaine Genson of Denton, Texas; Brett Genson and wife Jennifer of Amarillo, Texas; and Jayci Genson of Denton, Texas. She was so excited about the arrival of her first great-grandson, Reagan, due in May but we know she will be watching from above and he will grow up knowing that a sweet and wonderful Nana is his guardian angel. Doris is also survived by her brother, Johnny Parker and wife Becky of Amarillo, Texas; and her sister and best friend, Barbara Drinkard of Amarillo, Texas; many nieces, nephews and cousins will also miss her and she loved them all dearly. Family time was very special to her!
She now joins in eternal life with her parents, her sisters, Wazetta Dickey and Peggy Miller, and her brother Gary Parker.
Our sweet mom, Nana, sister, aunt, cousin and friend will be missed more than ever because she was one of a kind and irreplaceable. Our stories will never end and our love will continue always and forever. Until we meet again….
