Obituary of Donna M. Chubb

Donna Mae (Helwig) Chubb, 74, of Bechtelsville, PA, passed away on March 10, 2021, at Phoebe Allentown Health Care Center. She was the wife of Gary Lee Chubb, with whom she shared 55 years of marriage.

Born in Fountain Springs, PA, on September 28, 1946, Donna was the daughter of the late Edward and Catherine (Long) Helwig.

Donna graduated from Ashland High School in 1964, and then began her career as a hairdresser. She owned and operated her own salon in Quakertown, Donna Chubb’s Hair Styling, for over 40 years.
