Yvonna Inez Stoudt made her first trip home when she was 18 years old and the Lord told her it wasn’t time yet and she had to go back. On April 12, 2018, she was finally allowed to go home to be with her Savior.
If you have a penny with a cross cut out on it, you may have met her because she spent her life pointing people to her Savior because He was here to save us all. Born July 14, 1933, in Anson, Texas, she was a true Texas lady and was proud to be a Texan. She also loved the mountains of Wyoming where she met her sweetheart and husband of over 61 years, Homer Stoudt, who she has missed since September 2010. She was always busy and made a wonderful home for her family which consisted of husband Homer and her surviving daughter Janet Short and son Victor Stoudt and wife Kathy. Her grandchildren are Cheryl and Cory McMahan, Amanda Short and Rob Thomas, Amber Stoudt, Michael and Christa Stoudt and Victor Stoudt II, along with several great grandchildren. With love Inez worked hard as a wife and partner to Homer and mom to her children and their friends. She was a great cook, loved working in her yard, enjoyed crafts of all kind, played a good game of golf, was a bargain hunter at yard sales, collector of books, encourager to Western artists and as an avid bowler she was a great competitor and teammate. She wanted everyone to enjoy the fun and was recognized many times for her skill and sportsmanship as a bowler. It was better to bowl with her than against her. She loved to laugh and never met a stranger. We will miss her, and she would want to tell everyone Jesus loves you.
Donations to the Lupus foundation would honor her life and the fight she finally won over this disease. Donations to the Salvation Army or Hospice of Lubbock could be made also. Special thanks to the sweet care takers at Promiseland Assisted Living along with Jodie Jolly and Meyer Goldberg with Hospice of Lubbock. She loved your hugs and conversations.
There will be a gathering of friends at Lake Ridge Memorial Designers, 6025 82nd Street, Lubbock on Tuesday April 17th, 2018 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.
