Mrs. Trevino was born May 30, 1947, at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to the late Colonel Frank Donald Conant, Jr. and Joy Hawkins Conant.
Marcia was an "Army brat" who spent her entire youth and early adulthood moving around the country and overseas. She’d lived in Germany, Virginia, Maryland, Kansas, California, New Mexico, Alabama, Texas and Georgia before finally coming to South Carolina. She met her husband while visiting her Dad at the Fort Hood Army post in Texas. They married immediately upon his return from Vietnam in 1969, and then she finished her undergraduate degree at Virginia Tech. They settled for good in the Lake Wylie/Clover area with their three children in the late 1980s, finding an extended family among the Bethel Church congregation, where she was very active. Wherever she was living, she loved visiting family, reading (especially mysteries) and regular trips to the beach.
She was preceded in death by both her parents and sister Joy Susan C. Campbell. Survivors are her husband of 51 years, Ruben Edward Trevino; daughter, Anita J. Trevino of Greenville, SC; sons, Theodore Matthew Trevino (Pauline) of San Diego, CA, and Timothy Edward Trevino of Breckenridge, CO; sister, Donna C. Burke (Mike) of Roanoke, VA; and grandchildren, Alexis, Milena, and Oslo Trevino.
