Obituary - Marian Arlene Stout Lynes Bouck

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 6/7/24 | 6/7/24

Marian Arlene Stout Lynes Bouck passed away at her home on May 17, 2024, at age 101. Marian was born November 28, 1922 in Hallsport, New York to Harold and Gertrude Stout. There she grew up on the family dairy farm, and hated milk her entire life.

From her days at Wellsville Central School and for the rest of her life Marian was an excellent student and a compulsive joiner. From 4-H as a girl to numerous societies and clubs as an adult, she was an enthusiastic member of many organizations. 

Marian graduated from Cornell University in 1944 and moved to Middleburgh, New York to become a home economics teacher. She would live in Middleburgh the rest of her life. She spent her teaching career at Middleburgh Central school and stayed close with her former students long after she retired.

In 1946 she married a young lawyer named Melvin Lynes. They bought a house on River Street where they raised three children. She lived in that same house for more than 75 years.

After their children left home, Marian and Mel found a new shared passion, the restoration of a historic grist mill in Bramanville, New York. Mel’s sudden death in 1979 left her a widow. 

She found love again later in life. In 1990, she married Jack Bouck. With Jack she welcomed a second family into her life. Jack’s children: Bill (Gail), John (Jill) and Maggie (George) and their children and grandchildren were wonderful to Marian. She held them dear to her heart until the end. Jack and Marian had 13 wonderful years together until Jack’s passing.

Besides her families, Marian had three passions: the Middleburgh Library and its history and genealogy room, that was named in her honor, the Middleburgh Reformed Church, where she worshipped faithfully for many years, and the community of Middleburgh, where she lived her entire adult life.

Marian is survived by her three children: William (Phyllis) of Los Angeles, Peter of Las Vegas, and Deborah (David) of Washington, D.C.; four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

The Family wishes to give special thanks for her caregivers, and especially Valerie and Susan who gave her wonderful care.

A Memorial service will be held at 11:00AM on Saturday, June 15, 2024 at the Middleburgh Reformed Church, 178 River Street, Middleburgh.  Private inurnment will be in Middleburgh Cemetery.  All are invited to visit with Marian’s family from 5:00-7:00PM on Friday, June 14, 2024 at Coltrain Funeral Home, LLC, 134 River Street, Middleburgh.

Please consider a gift in Marian’s honor to the Middleburgh Library, PO Box 670, Middleburgh, NY 12122 or the Middleburgh Reformed Church, PO Box 112, Middleburgh, NY 12122
