I first met Ann in January 1981, when I enrolled in the Commercial Foods program at the Vo-Tech. I instantly feel in love with her and her energy. Ann was the kind of person that you felt you knew for years, as soon as you met her. I learned so much from Ann and she was the driving force that made me become a culinary teacher. To Ann’s family, I send my deepest sympathy.
I hope someone in her family reads this. I often thought of Mrs. Stout over the years and today I was sitting at my desk and thought I would do a google search on her to see if I could find her... I am sad to know she passed away. I was a student of hers in 1992 and 1993 at the Port Charlotte Culinary Arts School. I have such fond memories of her. I remember her laugh like I heard it yesterday and her beautiful smile. She was so patient with all the students. I remember talking to her about her daughter who passed away and how much that hurt her. I remember her sharing with me her album when she sang. She taught me how to cook and clean and I was very successful in the Culinary Arts profession in large part to her. I want whoever to read this to know she made a huge difference in my life and I am sure many others. I would love to e-mail her family if someone can tell me how to reach them via e-mail. My name is Andy and my e-mail is email@example.com
Her daughter Anna used to babysit me when I was younger. I had know her mom shortly during this time. Prayers to the family.
Dearest Ann, I know your deep faith has placed you with the Lord, and that gives me comfort. I clearly remember the day we met in Tom Wagoner's office the summer of 1980--you'd just been hired to be my partner in developing and opening the Commercial Foods program at the "Vo-Tech". You were first my friend, and then my colleague as you taught me so much. You have touched the lives of so many--countless people have been influenced in a positive way by you. You are an inspiration as to how to live with a chronic condition, meet it head on, doing everything you can to stay healthy, all while enjoying your family, friends and professional relationships. Blessings to you, Ann, and prayers for your family who, like me, will miss you so very much...With love, Terri
My condolences to Ann’s family. She was a special person and talented educator.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
My condolences to Ann’s family. She was a special lady and dedicated educator. She helped make my time at CTC much more enjoyable.
Now you truly are an angel.
We have all lost a very good friend. Ann was a hard worker for many good causes and she will be missed by many. Charlie, May you be granted the extra strength to make it through this difficult times. Ann will be remembered and honored in many ways.
My deepest sympathy to Ann's family. She was a kind and classy lady. Find comfort in the good times you shared, knowing that God has a new angel in heaven.
I met Ann this past spring in Silver Sneakers aerobics. She was so much fun to chat with. And what a Dynamo. We even walked together on the treadmills. She introduced me to the Retired Teachers of Port Charlotte which I became a member. I'll never forget her friendship. She will be so missed. By the way everyone in Silver Sneakers was in awe of her.
Ann Stout knew how to live a fulfilling life. She was devoted to her faith, family, friends and students. I learned her secret, be honest, kind, happy, forgiving and always give the world the best you have. It was an honor to have known you. Rest In Peace with your Lord dear Ann.
Ann was so special to me. When I was at CTC, she was the person who came to my office and offered her help with ever project. Whether it was a snack before an advisory meeting or a professionally prepared three-course dinner for the Council on Occupational Education event, Ann led the way. She gave all the credit to her students.
Not only did she run the Tech Center’s Culinary Arts and Commercial Foods Department, she was a mentor to many students. She offered them professional advice in the food industry, job-hunting skills, and techniques to improve their personal presentation. In many ways, she was a mother to them.
It was my pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Ann
I have had the pleasure of serving on The Salvation Army Advisory Board with Ann for many years. Our Board was blessed with Ann's great faith, kindness, common sense and commitment. With her beautiful smile, Ann was always happy to talk of her love for her Lord, her beloved Charles, her children and family. Ann's friendship was a treasure to my life.
I first met Ann when working at the cultural center then years later i had the great pleasure to reunite with Ann at the YMCA silver sneakers exercise workout. She was an inspiration to me and I will always remember her beautiful smile and warm heart.
Ann was a special lady, she loved working with the students here at CTC. It was always a pleasure to go to lunch room and find her winning smile and great passion for teaching her students. You will be missed and now God has a special lady in his care.
Wonderful Lady I had the pleasure of working with when first hired. Many laughs when Culinary was located in the Culture Center. Prayers and thoughts to family.l
Ann is a member of our Charlotte VoTech Family. As a fellow teacher, I loved lunch for many reasons! Ann's smile was as delicious as the dessert, her hospitality as soothing as any comfort food. Gods Peace, Ann.
Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss.
