Shelley Von Stout-Henkener departed this life to be with her Lord on February 8, 2011 at North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, Colo. She came into this world on June 21, 1955, born to Billy and Dorothy Stout and resided in Hooker, Okla. She soon took on the nickname, Dinky given to her by her father. She carried that nickname her whole life when one day she became an aunt, and her nieces and nephew adopted the long term name of Aunt Dink. Shelley was a lifelong member of the Hooker First Baptist church, attended Hooker Schools, was a member of the Rainbow Order for Girls and participated in the high school chorus. In 1973, she graduated and completed her high school diploma at the Colorado School for Girls in Colorado Springs, Colo. Upon graduating, she relocated home to the Hooker and Liberal communities where she discovered and pursued her passion for cooking and preparing meals, working in various restaurants learning new cooking skills. Her love for Colorado took her back to Loveland, Colo. where she continued to learn about cooking and perfecting her recipes. While living there, Shelley met her match, not only in the kitchen, but for her heart as well, Matthew Henkener. They were joined in marriage on April 24, 1999 and brought into their life a dedicated and loving dog named JRT Weezer. Matthew and Shelley shared extreme passion for cooking and entertaining their friends in the whole dining experience. They often had competitions between each other to see whose dish was the most exquisite, with their friends and family of course being the judges. Sharing the desire to experience cuisines of other cultures, Matthew and Shelley traveled to many different countries with their loving friends, often bringing those recipes back to their family to experience. During one of their trips to Italy, they took a cooking class together that brought even more ideas and zest to their Italian dishes. Shelley is preceded in death by her father Billy Stout, two sets of grandparents, R.H. and Nannie Mayer and Earnest and Gladys Stout. She is survived by her loving husband Matthew Henkener of Loveland, Colo., her parents Dorothy and Burl Spears of Hooker, Okla., brother Rev. Robert L. Stout and wife Joan of Quimby, Iowa, brother Billy (Bud) Stout of Hooker, Okla., niece Robin Lytle of Cherokee, Iowa, niece Amanda Stout of Hooker, Okla., nephew Mikeal Stout and wife Kenya of Yukon, Okla., great nieces, Kennadie Klein, Casady Curtis and Kiaser Stout. She is also survived by step sibling, Steven Spears and wife Sheena and their family and many friends who loved her very much. Funeral services will be at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, February 12, 2010 at the First Baptist Church in Hooker, Oklahoma with Bro. Jim Roebuck officiating. Interment will be in the Hooker Cemetery directed by Roberts Brothers Funeral Home, Inc. in Hooker, Oklahoma. The family suggests memorials be made to their favorite charities in care of Roberts Brothers in Hooker, Okla.
