Melva (Mel) Hetcher

Melva (Mel) Hetcher, 88, went home to be with Jesus on Feb. 9, 2021. She spent most of her life in Marinette, Wis., as a loving wife to Louie (passed in 1982) for 28 years. 

   Mel always had a sharp wit and loving heart. She worked as the branch secretary at GAB (General Adjustment Bureau) for 42 years. Mel attended Calvary Church Assembly of God in Marinette. She spent the last six years in De Pere, Wis., to be close to her family.

Mel is survived by her three sons: Jim Maleta (wife, Katie) of Soquel, Calif., Nick Hetcher (wife, Lynn) of Green Bay and Steve Hetcher of Bellingham, Wash.  She was a proud grandma (AKA: “GG”) of seven grandkids; 17 great-grandkids; and 2 great-great-grandkids. She will be greatly missed by all family and friends.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021, at 11 a.m. at Calvary Church, W1498 Hwy 64 in Marinette.
