August 16, 1944 - April 18, 2019
Christa Trotter was born and raised in Germany to parents Anton and Eva Marx Reiser. She married Donn Trotter on January 8, 1995 in Salem. She was a “people person” who made friends wherever she went. For a time, she was employed at the fragrance counter at the Bon Marche. She was an excellent cook and loved flower gardening and animals—her all-time favorites being a schnauzer named Max, a poodle named Toby and a boxer named Selma.
Christa is survived by her beloved husband of 24 years, Donn Trotter; her children Wendy and Greg Lay, Kevin and Jennifer Matthews, Robert and Bobbi Matthews; stepson Gary Trotter and 8 grandchildren
At her request, no services will be held. The family would like to extend a word of thanks to Bonaventure Memory Care of Salem and Kindred Hospice for their support during Christa’s time with them.
