Obituaries » GLADYS A. GROUT
GROUT, GLADYS ADELLE JONES, was born Sept. 21, 1925, at Indian Creek, Tex., and passed into the Lord’s presence Jan. 4, 2014, at home in Frisco, Tex. She met the love of her life, Raymond Grout, while working at Camp Swift near Austin, Tex., in the early years of World War II, where Ray was stationed before shipping out overseas. For 35 years, they made their home in Montpelier, near Ray’s birthplace. Upon Ray’s retirement, they moved to Marble Falls, Tex., to be nearer to Gladys’ family. And finally, they moved to Frisco to be closer to their daughters. Always, Gladys created a warm and loving home for Ray and their four children, and she loved spending time with grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who knew her as Mom Grout. She loved color, Texas sunsets, making things grow and, most of all, her family and her Lord. Her sweet spirit never failed her, and her life was a shining example of the fruit of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. She is survived by her sister, Helen Corbitt Mueller, of Austin, Tex.; daughter and caregiver Cheryl Murray, of Frisco, Tex.; son and daughter-in-law, Bruce and Tyan Grout, of Bend, Ore.; daughter and son-in-law Karen and Ted Ellis, of Dallas, Tex.; and daughter and son-in-law Robin and Richard Bradley, of Florence, Ky.; 11 beloved grandchildren; and 20 great-grandchildren.
