Donna (Hesser) DelVecchio finally found peace April 14, 2017 after a long and valiant fight with Sarcoma cancer. Initially diagnosed with cancer in August of 2014, doctors in January 2015 gave her only a few weeks to live. Her faith and desire to be with family and friends gave her the strength and will to live fully and to persist against this terrible disease.
Donna is survived by her loving and caring husband Larry, who was her devoted partner throughout her life and her children, Alex and Christina, who meant the moon to her. She is also survived by her loving parents George and Nancy (Brown) Hesser, her brother and sisters, Robert Hesser (Jeannine), Christine Hesser (Margaret Mary Burke) and Jennifer McErlean(John); and six nieces and nephews who she adored and loved spending time with them.
Through Donna’s love of bowling, she met many wonderful friends who became extended family. She would be upset that we cannot name everyone individually, who gave her support and love throughout her life. However, a few friends in particular, Diane (DeDe) Gudknecht and Michael and Tami Italia, whom Donna considered part of her family, were especially devoted to her through this long and devastating illness.
Friends and family are invited to celebrate her Funeral Mass 11 AM, Friday, April 21, 2017 at St. Jude Church, 321 West Butler Ave., Chalfont, PA where the greeting will begin at 9:30 AM. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Donna’s memory may be sent to the Sarcoma Foundation of America www.curesarcoma.org.
