Jo Trout was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina to Thelma and Olin Page. After raising her children while being stationed on several bases, Oliver and Jo retired and settled in their beloved home on the Isle of Palms. Jo was a devout Christian and served for many years at both the Isle of Palms Baptist and Sullivan's Baptist Churches as an active member and Children's Sunday School Teacher . Before her own professional retirement, "Mrs. Trout" further served more children's development though her Food Service Management Position for the Charleston County School District.

Her interests included cooking, especially for her family, along with gardening and travel. She was an avid magazine reader and loved traveling with her family. Her favorite travels included closer to home locations at Boone, North Carolina and the surrounding mountains of South and North Carolina.

Her family would like to thank the Hospice Cottage of Roper Hospital for their kind, compassionate care.
