Donna was born in the family homestead on July 7, 1936 in Springfield, PA, daughter of the late Frederic and Cecil Mae Boughton Mattocks.
Donna loved to teach her high school business courses and support her students in the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). She traveled with her students who won many competitions around the country. A proud teacher, she kept up with business training as it advanced from shorthand and typing to business software. She spent most of her 30-year career at Towanda High School. She also taught business courses at Lackawanna Community College.
Donna was a proud and supportive wife through many things including years of traveling along with her children to softball games, remodeling homes, and working in tandem with her husband’s business and community activities. She was an amazing mother who never missed a sporting event or school activity and supported her children unconditionally. She also found time for her much loved gardens and bird feeders and for playing with and teasing her grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the FBLA at Towanda High School. Checks can be made out to Towanda High School - FBLA and mailed to 1 High School Drive, Towanda, PA 18848. Please note “in honor of Donna Hettich” on the check.
Due to current travel and gathering restrictions, a memorial service will be scheduled and announced at a later date.
