She was born in Harris on Aug. 27, 1918 to George and Grace Atherton.  Millie graduated from Paseo High School in Kansas City, Mo.  on Oct. 27th, 1940. She married Loren O. Trout of Ottawa and they have enjoyed over 70 wonderful years together.  She was a proud 50-year member of the P.E.O. sisterhood and the Fairway Methodist Church.
