Patty Kay Sewell, 56, of Galeton, PA

Patty Kay Sewell

 Patty Kay Sewell, 56, of Galeton, PA. Heaven earned it's most precious angel, and the earth was left without. 

Patty was a giving soul who shared her life and her love with everyone she met. She never missed a chance to tell you how much she loved you or let you know that you were important. Patty had a way to make you feel better on a bad day even if hers was worse. 

She was loving and giving even if she had nothing to give but herself; which she gave freely to anybody who needed love. In her words, she was a mom not by birth, but by love. She was known as Aunt Patty to most. 

Patty lived in Galeton her whole life and was a graduate of Galeton High School. 

Patty was a member of Lighthouse Community Church where she shared the light of Jesus with all who would listen. Most everybody remembers Patty for her hugs (she had the best hugs). 

Patty was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Penny Lampman. 

She leaves behind the love of her life, and husband of 39 years, Bill. She leaves behind 5 siblings, a multitude of nieces and nephews, her church family, and all of her family by love. She also leaves behind 3 daughters, Tonya (Thomas) Gail, Shana (Josh) McVickers, and Billie (Kevin) Sahr. She leaves behind 12 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. 

Patty loved spending time with her grandchildren and celebrated the accomplishments of all, no matter how far away they were. 

A Celebration of Patty’s life will be held on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 11:00am at the Lighthouse Community Church in Galeton. 

Arrangements have been entrusted to Hess Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Galeton.

Donna Lee Wilcox, 80, Lawrenceville, PA

Donna Lee Wilcox

Donna Lee Wilcox, caring wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away June 3, 2021 at age 80 after a courageous battle with cancer.  She died at home, surrounded by her family whom she loved and who loved her deeply.

She was born August 7, 1940 to Arthur and Naomi Grace (Kane) Lundgren in Blossburg, PA.  

She lost her mother at a very early age and missed and loved her deeply.  Donna grew up in Wellsboro, where she met her husband of 62 years.  

Together they had two children Jerry Arthur and Jay Elliott Wilcox and they shared a wonderful life together.  Donna loved morning walks, spending time with friends and family and loved horses.  

She had a fierce personality and a sense of humor that was admired by all who knew her.  She was generous and caring.  

Donna and her husband Chuck spent their summers in Lawrenceville, PA and travelled to Arizona in the winter where they shared great times with many close friends.  There was nothing ordinary about Donna, she was direct and to the point, and as sassy as they come.  

She loved her family and was proud of the men her two sons became.  She had a love of fast cars and loved to “haul ass”, as she would say.  She had too many close friends to list, but her dearest friend was Shelia Kilmer and together, let’s just say, they made memories that can never be forgotten.  She shared many laughs and memories with the Thursday morning breakfast club as well as her friends in Arizona.  She will be greatly missed.

Donna is survived by her husband: Charles Albert Wilcox, Jr.; two sons:  Jerry Arthur Wilcox and his former wife Theresa Evans Robertson, and Jay Elliott Wilcox and his wife Kimberly Spencer Wilcox; grandchildren:  David Wilcox (Christine), Whitney Wilcox, Chase Wilcox (Brittany), Seth Wilcox, Reagan Wilcox, and Ben Wilcox; great-grandchildren:  Ava, Evan, Cambria, and Riley Wilcox; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law:  Leroy and Sue Young, and Roger and Mary Wilcox; and many nieces and nephews.

Friends and family are invited to pay tribute to Donna’s life from 1:00-3:00pm Friday June 11, 2021 at Calvary United Methodist Church in Lawrenceville with a memorial service to follow in the church at 3:00pm, and a time of fellowship to follow the service.  

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 USA /, or the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 22478, Oklahoma City, OK 73123.  

Her family has entrusted the Tussey-Mosher Funeral Home, 139 Main Street, Wellsboro, PA with her arrangements.  To share a memory or condolence, please visit:

At 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 10, the Gabe Stillman Band of Williamsport with special guest Kat Riggins of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida will give a concert at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro. 

Both Stillman and Riggins will perform during the June 11, 12 and 13 Billtown Blues Festival at the Lycoming County Fairgrounds in Hughesville.

Stillman leads the band. In 2019 at the International Blues Challenge, this ace guitarist and singer won the Gibson Guitar Award, which propelled him into the national spotlight. Also in the band are Colin Beatty of Williamsport on bass guitar and Ray Hangen of Buffalo, N.Y. on drums. The trio will perform original songs from Stillman's 2020 album "Flying High", which he recorded with The Nighthawks, the legendary Washington, D.C. blues band and from Stillman's next album (working title "Just Say the Word") being released in September. 

Kat Riggins will sing blues-rock and rhythm and blues songs from her 2020 release "Cry Out", which is nominated for Contemporary Blues Album of the Year at the 42nd Blues Music Awards being held virtually this Sunday, June 6. "Cry Out" is described as "a fiery showcase or her gritty vocal channeling of a sisterhood that includes Koko Taylor, Janis Joplin and Tina Turner. She rocks on 'Son of a Gun,' rolls on 'Wicked Tongue' and simmers with a red-hot glow on 'Burn It All Down'." During her set on June 10, this Miami-born singer-songwriter will be backed by Beatty and Hangen.

Concert tickets only are $22 and $44 for the pre-show dinner and concert. To make dinner reservations and order, call the Red Skillet 570-787-4545. The restaurant is in the Deane Center with a short walk to the Coolidge Theatre.
