Sally Newsome Hout Obituary

DOYLESTOWN – Sally Jo Newsome Hout, age 77, passed away after a long-fought battle with Alzheimer’s.

Born on February 18, 1946 in Columbus, GA to the late Ivy B. and Rosie (Wade) Newsome, she had been a resident of Doylestown since 1971. Sally had retired from both Ameritech and Allstate Insurance in customer service and had attended the Doylestown United Methodist for many years.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Dale A.; brothers, Ben, Jerry, and George “Sonny” Newsome; sisters, Bessie Powers, Mildred Bolding, Kate Newsome, Pauline Ganus, and Betty Barth. She is survived by her daughters, Heather (Matt) Gentner of Doylestown, Kimberly (Mark) Galehouse of Knoxville, TN; grandchildren, Emma (Nick) Zollinger, Madelyn Gentner, Gillian Gentner, Josephine Galehouse, Isabelle Galehouse, Lola Galehouse, Zachary Galehouse, and Megann Galehouse; brother, Toby (Fay) Newsome, Scarbrough (Toko) Newsome; sister, Maxine Hunter; numerous nieces, nephews, other family and friends.

"Nana" enjoyed baking, sewing, puzzles, dancing, spending time with her granddaughters and snap chat filters.

In Sally’s understanding in the early stages of the disease, she selflessly has made a donation to the University of Maryland, Brain and Tissue Bank to help further the research in developing a cure for Alzheimer’s.

A private inurnment will be held by the family at Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Alzheimer's Association Online obituary and guest registry are available at
