Kathleen Janet (Stout) Patterson, age 82, of Delray Beach, Florida, passed away peacefully Saturday, May 16, 2015, at her daughter’s home in Massachusetts, surrounded by her family who treasured her.

She was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan but spent the greater part of her life in Florida. Beloved for 35 years by the late Robert Leo, cherished mother of Mary (Patterson) Dodge and son-in-law Larry, and devoted grandmother to Robert. She is also survived by her eldest sister, Mae Shumard of St. Claire Shores, Mi. and her younger brother, Jack Stout of Branson, MO., in addition to her 17 nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly. She also leaves many grand nieces and nephews. She was the daughter of the late James Stout and Margaret (Campbell) Stout Esher. Katie is pre-deceased by her sisters – the Stout girls – Mary Stout, Helen Johannson, Jessie Firestone, Agnes Rusk, Ruth Mauro and Shirley Fronrath.

Katie was a very strong and caring woman who would always do for others. She cherished the time spent with family and friends. She loved the beach, reading, cooking and entertaining. Her home was always open and welcoming. Her vibrant, optimistic, never-say-no attitude and outlook earned her respect, admiration and love from family and friends alike.

She was a long time employee of the Boca Raton Resort and Club in multiple capacities, Social Director, Membership Office and Secretary to the General Manager. Katie was the first concierge at Presidential Place in Boca Raton, Florida. Here she devoted her time, energy and love to the homeowners for almost 20 years until her retirement three years ago.

She will be greatly missed...every second of every day.

A private, family memorial service will be held in June. Memorial donations in Katie’s name may be made to Cancer Center Mass General Hospital North Shore, 102-104 Endicott Street, Danvers, MA 01923.

Memorial music “Be Thou My Vision” by Pastor Peter Vantine.

Aunt Katie was so special to John and me. This lady was beautiful inside and out. John talked about Aunt Katie with such endearment it was incredible. She was his favorite aunt, for sure! The memories that John has back when John was in the Navy, are memories he will always cherish! There are too many memories to write In a such a small space. Aunt Katie will be missed and forever in our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers to Mary, Larry, and Robert Love, John and Laurie Firestone

Aunt Katie was always with us when we were young. She would hold contests with all of us cousins and the prize would be a Potatoe! We would all moan and she would laugh. So many memories. I loved my Aunts and miss them all. I hope they are all together looking down on all of us smiling. Love you Katie, thank you for all the love. Margaret
Loved u aunt Katie!! May u rip
I only knew Katie for the last decade of her wonderful life. She was a very special lady. Always kind, considerate, generous and interested in those who came in contact with her. Katie treasured her family above all else and never had a bad word to say about anyone. She always saw and sought out the best in people. I treasure the time I spent with Katie and I know she's up in the clouds looking down on all the people she encountered in her life. Will miss you Katie. Martin XO
