Obituary

Eileen Maria Trout, age 61, passed away with family by her side on May 7, 2021. She was born May 26, 1959 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Jeremiah and Nora Bowler. She married the love of her life, Bogar Trout Jr. on May 31, 1997. Eileen graduated from Redford High in 1979 and co-owned Bogie’s Express with her husband. She was a member of St. Elizabeth Catholic church and taught Irish Dance at the Ardan Academy for over 20 years. She was an excellent teacher that mentored and supported the dancers inside and outside of class. She had the privilege of watching her students grow into beautiful, happy, confident adults. She brought abundant joy to many people over the years through dance. Many of her students became champions all over North America and the World Irish Dancing Championships. Eileen will be greatly missed by all whose lives she has touched with her kind heart, her love of the dance, and her joy for life. We are all much better people for having had her in our lives. Eileen is survived by her husband of 24 years, Bogar Trout Jr. and children, Joseph Patrick (Maryalice) Nick of Tecumseh, MI, Jeremy Ryan Trout of Caro, MI, Bogar Thomas Trout III of Tecumseh, MI, and Kristin (Grant) Goetschy of Freeland, MI.
