Adele Josephine Shrout of Boulder passed on to her creator at home September 24 2019. Born to Antoinette and Patsey Pandiscio in Fittzburg, Mass. Aug. 31 1920, Adele lived a colorful, talented and determined life rooted in the fine arts of an emigrant Italian family from the Naples, Italy area.
She met her husband, Archie R. Shrout ,Sr. in East Orange N.J. where they soon married. Afterward they moved to her husbands farm in Grain Valley, Mo., where she always said she took to farm life "like a duck out of water". During WWII she worked for the Dept. of the Army as a draftsperson in Enid OK. while her husband trained in Aviator School for the Army Air Corp. According to Adele, she always kept her Italian heritage under wraps due to the Axis..." draftsmen were in short supply so they hired me". After the war she worked as a colorist of black and white sepia portraits at home. When employed by the Montgomery Ward Advertising Dept. at their headquarters in KC Mo. she was the head artist who drew figures of the clothing models for the company's mail order catalogue. She often said that her work was viewed by more people than her favorite artist, Michael Angelo.
She moved to Boulder with her family in 1971 establishing a successful home business as a colorist for most all photographers between Boulder and Denver. Her talent for oil colors were very much in demand until direct color replaced black and white. Widowed in 1969, she obtained her Colorado Real Estate license in 1961, retiring in 2010 after working for many real state Boulder brokers. Customers said she was like a blind wrestler, " once she got ahold of you she never let loose". Many commercial sites in Boulder/Longmont were listed and sold by her, including Rayback Plumbing, now the Rayback Center, and the Macukins corner. Much of the commercial property along south Hover road was listed by her in Longmont when they were small farms.
Adele loved ballroom dancing, her "social singles", family and travel. She coveted her daughter, Candace Marie.
She leaves her three sons, Archie, Ron and John; and seven grandchildren: Laurel Rhines (Fl.), Raoul and Derek ( Boulder/Denver), Monica Sorrell (Cal.), Colleen Spencer (Cal.), Siera Shrout (Cal.) Dwight Shrout ( Boulder) and seven Great Grandchildren.
A Mass of the Christian Burial will be said by Rev. Jim Baird 10am Oct. 3, 2019 at St. Matin De Pores Catholic Church on Table Mesa Dr. with a lunch in the banquet hall to follow Mass. Interment will follow at Green Mountain Cemetery ,1pm.
Viewing and Rosary at the Greenwood and Myers Mortuary, 2969 Baseline Rd. Boulder, 4-7pm Wednesday. Oct 2.
Please consider flowers or a contribution to Tru Care Hospice.
