Lillie was born in Scotia, MO, on September 3, 1917, daughter of Arvel Walker and Tressie Walker nee Clonts. On November 24, 1938, she was united in marriage to Clarence Elbert Wymer and two children came to bless this union. On May 10, 1982, she was united in marriage to Charles Lawrence Stout and their families were joined as one.

Lillie is survived by her daughter, Judy Johnston of O’Fallon, MO; by her step-children, David Stout and wife, Kim, of Chesterfield, MO and Carole Clanton of Kirkwood, MO; by one brother, James Walker and wife, Bonnie, of Ballwin, MO; by two sisters, Ina King of Wentzville, MO and Vera Wymer and husband, Howard, of Richland, MO; by one brother-in-law, Robert Wymer and wife, Marian, of Sullivan, MO; by two sisters-in-law, Ester Clonts of St. Louis, MO and Ava Cartwright of Bourbon, MO; by her former daughters-in-law, Nancy Wymer of St. Louis and Phyllis Wymer of Pacific, MO; by five grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, seven great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great and great-great-nieces and nephews, cousins, other relatives and many friends.

Lillie was preceded in death by her parents, Arvel and Tressie Walker; by her husbands, Clarence Wymer and Charles Stout; by her son, Richard Wymer; by one brother, Jason Walker; and by one sister, Wilma Crabtree.

Lillie was a Christian and member of St. Clair United Methodist Church in St. Clair, MO. During her working career she was employed as a meat wrapper in various grocery stores. Lillie was active at the St. Clair Senior Center, quilted at St. John’s United Church of Christ in St. Clair and was a member of the St. Clair Garden Club. She continued to make quilt tops throughout her life. She loved to play bingo, play many different card games, cook and bake. She also liked to watch St. Louis Cardinal baseball games. Lillie had a special affection for her little Bishon dog, Maggie. What meant most to her was time spent with her family. Her children and grandchildren held a special place in her heart, as she did in theirs. The love they shared and many precious memories they created will be cherished by them all forever.

A kind and loving mother, grandmother, great and great-great-grandmother, sister, sister-in-law, aunt, great and great-great-aunt, cousin and treasured friend, she will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved her.
