Donna L Whitton Obituary

   Donna L. (Miller) Whitton, age 92, of Tionesta, PA, passed away peacefully  on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at her home in Tionesta.  She was born February 11, 1931 in Oil City, PA, daughter of the late Henry J. “Harry” and Bessie (Daugherty) Miller, and was the last surviving member of her family of twelve.

   On January 21st 1950 in Oil City she married Stephen O. Whitton who died April 13, 1998.   The couple raised a large family in Tionesta of eight children.  Donna loved raising her family and being a devoted “stay at home mother”.   She loved to cook and everyone knew she was the “Boss of her Kitchen”.   She enjoyed flowers, gardening, a good book read, and crossword puzzles.  She so much enjoyed family and friend get togethers of recent years under her pavilion.  She was a kind and beautiful soul who welcomed all to her home…so many called her “mom”.  She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

   Surviving are the following sons and daughter: Randy (and Marsha), Ken (and Rennie), Jim (and Lee), Todd (and Darla), all of Tionesta.  Sandy (and Rick) Grundmeier and Orrie (and Vickie), all of Mound, Minnesota. 

   The highlight of her life were her 21 precious grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren, too numerous to name.  Many nieces and nephews.  A daughter in law Kathy (and Al) Wirth of South Carolina.  A very special friend Anna Marie Pedaci of Tionesta. 

   In addition to her parents, four brothers and seven sisters, and her husband, she was also preceded in death by a son, Stephen Whitton in 2012.  A daughter Sally (Whitton) Bayless and her husband Corb, are also deceased.   A special aunt, Aunt Eva Carson, is also deceased…along with Donna’s companion Chester Book.     

   There will be no public visitation however a Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.  Burial will be alongside her husband Steve at the Amity Lutheran Cemetery in Tionesta. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to Clarion-Forest VNA Hospice 271 Perkins RD Clarion, PA 16214.  Arrangements are under the direction of the Norman J.
