Frances (Misty) Mae Trotter, 87, of Johnston, Iowa passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones, on Wednesday, May 11, 2022. She was born to Frank and Mary (Moorehouse) Trotter on May 9, 1935. She worked at the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy (I.L.E.A.) at Camp Dodge, Iowa, where she retired after many years of service. She was also a long-term member of the American Business Women Association (ABWA). Misty, as she was lovingly referred to, enjoyed shopping, going out to eat, Paul Newman, reading, animals, and spending time with family and friends. She had a giant heart and loved doing things for other people.

Misty is preceded in death by her parents Frank and Mary Trotter and her sister Janice (Bill) Mull. Misty is survived by several step-nieces and step-nephews, as well as many adopted family members.

A memorial graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Monday, May 23, 2022, at McDivitt Grove Cemetery in Urbandale, Iowa, where she will be laid to rest.

Misty was a strong, independent woman who was very loving, giving, fiercely loyal, stubborn, opinionated, and always herself. She adored animals and people.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa or to the American Red Cross. She will be greatly missed, but is finally at peace and is no longer suffering.
