Obituary for Annie R. Stoute

Annie R. Stoute was born on November 3, 1931 in King William County, Virginia, daughter of the late Frank Bowens and Carrie Banks. She attended Wilday School in King William County. Raised in a Christian home, Annie accepted the Lord at an early age. She attended and was baptized at Zion Hill Baptist Church now known as Trinity Baptist Church in Westpoint, Virginia. At the age of 16 years, she became an Usher.

Annie married the late Albert Braxton, Jr. in 1949 and with this union they were blessed with four children: Brenda Ann, Martha Denise, Albrette and Lionel. In 1953, the family moved to Fanwood, New Jersey. Later, Annie became a long time resident of Roselle, New Jersey where she was a member of Second Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Kelsey. She became an Usher and a member as well under Pastor James Moore until her illness made it impossible.

In 1970, she was employed with RCA Corporation for a number of years while doing domestic day work. Later, Annie worked for Bloomfield Molding in East Orange, New Jersey for over 20 years. After leaving Bloomfield, she became a Home Health Aide with Premier Health Care Service in Scotch Plains for the next 40 years.

Annie met her husband, Leonard Stoute whom she loved dearly. They wedded on April 16, 1993 and resided in Rahway, New Jersey for the remaining years. Annie loved to laugh, dance, listen to music, hug and you know talking and cooking. She was known for her famous potato salad, cabbage and those sweet potato pies. She had an impact on everyone; she came in contact with. Annie touched so many countless lives with that beacon of light she carried. When Jesus said, let your light shine for all the world to see.

She was a loving and caring devoted Christian woman who loved the Lord Jesus Christ. She loved her husband and family dearly. The world saw what Annie truly did. She was known by many and will truly be missed. “Kitten,” “Ma,” Nana,” and “Big Nana” were some names she was affectionately called by her family.

Annie was predeceased by her son-in-law, Douglas Johnson; and two sisters: Madeline Chamberline and Merteen Norris.
