Evelyn Trouth was born to a Minnesota farm family. Her formal education began in a one-room schoolhouse in Sioux Valley and she progressed to Saint Mary’s Nursing College in Rochester, Minn. as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Her career took her to top hospitals in the Twin Cities, San Diego and Denver. She worked performing basic nursing duties to caring for the terminally ill.
