Irene St. Pierre Trott, 86, passed away on July 1, 2019 in Gilbert, Arizona. She was the widow of James Trott. They shared 40 years of marriage together until his death in 1997.
Born in Brunswick, Maine, she was the youngest daughter of 13 children born to Willie and Reine St. Pierre. She attended St. John’s school in Brunswick. She moved to California with her husband in 1959 and, although she spent the following 60 years in California, always considered Maine her true home.
Irene and her husband were active members of St. Pius V church and the Elks Lodge in Buena Park. She was a sales associate with JC Penney where she retired after 20 years. She enjoyed reading, sewing, knitting and bingo, and will be remembered for her love of bus trips with her husband and friends to casinos both near and far.
She is survived by her daughter, Deborah (Sam) DeLeese; son, Lawrence (Janet) Trott; son, Jeff (Sylvia) Trott; grandchildren, Samantha Wilcox, Katelyn Keverian, Michael Trott and Travis Barrera; great-grandchildren, Paisley, Courtney and Landon Wilcox; three siblings and numerous nieces and nephews.
