Helen Eileen Troutt "Gigi" was born on February 29, 1924. She entered into eternity with Jesus on April 13, 2011. Being a resident of Redondo Beach for over 60 years she was very active in the community. Much of her energy and time was spent with her children's PTA and scout groups. During and after her twenty years at GTE, the Elks Lodge and Deers occupied many happy hours for her. Survivors include her three children Bucky, Jori and Kelly; nine grand children and six great- grand children; a beloved brother-in-law Robert L. Troutt, two nephews, one niece and their families. Many memories flood her family's hearts; including her being a beloved mother and grandmother. All will remember her as an amazing cook and generous friend to many. The Service will be held at Rice Mortuary on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at 11:00 AM. Burial will be at Pacific Crest Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Helen's name to the SPCA.

  1. We were so sorry to hear of Eileen’s passing. She had been our neighbor for 22 years. She was always so friendly, cheerful, and kind. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Bill and Susie Lippert

  2. My deepest sympathy go out to you, during this difficult time. I love the picture it reflects on how I remember her.

  3. I read Mrs. Troutt’s obituary in the Daily Breeze and was so sorry to hear of her passing. I remember Jori so fondly from the summers in Hermosa on the strand at 9th street and so Mrs. Troutt’s name caught my attention. My deepest sympathy to her and all her family in this time of greatest sorrow. Sincerely, Linda (Lynne) LaFleur

  4. Memories of my childhood are intertwined with fond memories of your mom and of course Bucky, Jori and Kelly. I especially remember her love of animals and Taffy.
