Theresa A. Doyle TroutAugust 4, 1910 – October 14, 2004
Theresa A. Trout, 94, of Grand Junction passed away on Thursday, Oct. 14, 2004, at Mesa Manor. Theresa was the youngest of five children born to Tim and Kate Doyle at their homestead at Cattle Creek, near Glenwood Springs. She married Alvin U. Trout on June 25, 1927, at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Glenwood.Theresa’s pioneer spirit, along with Alvin’s, allowed them to move their three children across Colorado and numerous states. Theresa helped Alvin run his own road construction company during the 1950s. They returned to the Cattle Creek homestead during the ’60s and later retired to Arizona in 1974 for 10 years. They missed their grandchildren and Colorado, so they moved back to settle in Grand Junction.Theresa was very proud of her large extended family, and the family of her. She celebrated her 52nd year of sobriety in May. Her example of following the 12-step program has been monumental in changing lives not only to her family, but also to friends and strangers as well.She is survived by son Eugene Trout of Grand Junction; daughter, Fay McCoy of Denver; niece Frances Westhoff-Baker of Grand Junction; 15 grandchildren; 30 great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; and numerous grandnieces and grandnephews.She is preceded in death by her husband; a son, Arden Trout; a grandson, Eric Trout; a granddaughter, Joanne Trout; and a great-great-grandson, Cody K.
