From Adversity to Leadership: Ophelia Fetter's Journey and the Legacy of James R Fetter

James R Fetter passed on November 21, 2022. Since then, his wife, Ophelia Fetter, has become the full owner of Muncy Industries . Ophelia came to the United States in 1963 for college in California as a foreign student (not exchange student).
