     Alma Marie Ivey Trotter, 83, of Aiken passed away on Feb 27, 2023 after an illness. She was surrounded by her loving family at the time she passed.

     Marie was born June 4, 1939 to Abbott and Frances Ivey in Warrenton Georgia. She graduated from Johnston High school in 1957 where she met the love of her life, Gene Trotter, and they wed in March of 1958, going on to have four children, Doug, Dean, Dennis and Dawn.

She was most known for her beautiful smile, warm hugs, quick whit, and her wonderful, distinctive laugh. To know her was to love her.

She is survived by her loving husband of sixty five years, Gene Trotter, her three sons, Doug Trotter (Julie), Dean Trotter(Tara), Dennis Trotter, and a daughter Dawn Trotter, one grandson Greg Trotter (Laura), and three granddaughters Ashlee, Taylor and Stacey Trotter, and two sisters Loretta Ivey Johnson and Carolyn Ivey Harmon (Gary).
