Trevor, Jonquil

Jonquil Trevor, 2004 Inductee

Her husband, Elleston, was an internationally know author and playwright, but Mrs. Trevor is the one in the family who left her mark on the early history of Fountain Hills. She was a member of the Women’s Club, the Desert Singers (an early day women’s choral group) and she championed a community litter pickup campaign called “The Trash Bash.” She coordinated volunteer efforts among local organizations and individuals for the trash pickup. Always with a smile and her perky English accent, she had a talent for getting people to say “yes” to her volunteer requests. She and her husband, Elleston, opened their home to the community for several large functions including a town party for Ford Motor executives at Fountain Hills’ 10th Anniversary celebration. The Trevors were among the first members of the Fountain Hills Saddle Club and she crusaded to have a cattle guard removed by the county on Shea Boulevard at the Town’s eastern boundary.
