Margaret "Marty" Hettinger, age 80, passed away in Omaha, NE, on September 1, 2022, after a two and a half year battle with pancreatic cancer. She was born June 4, 1942 to the late Raymond and Elnora (Kiser) Lowry in Lyman, NE. Margaret lived the majority of her life in Mitchell, NE, graduating from Mitchell High School in 1960. While in the Valley, she worked more than 30 years in the Mitchell and Morrill Medical Clinics. Margaret enjoyed reading, crocheting, and painting. Her pride and joy was her family.
