Mindy Fetterman, who was a business reporter and deputy managing editor for the Money section at USA Today, died Thursday at the age of 68.

She was also business editor of the Dallas Morning News from 1998 to 2000.

An obituary reads, “Over the course of a classic journalism career, Mindy moved from the Moline Daily Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune to the Rochester Times Union to the masthead of USA TODAY, where she was the managing editor for content strategy, and a deputy managing editor in news and business. During the height of USA TODAY’s influence, she led coverage of the 9/11 attacks, aviation safety, ‘road warrior’ business travel, and personal finance. Post-journalism, she was an executive vice president at Burson Cohn & Wolfe and a senior director at Palisades Media Group.

“At every step, Mindy made close friends and kept them, from her freshman dorm-mates at the University of Kentucky to a stint as business editor of The Dallas Morning News to fellow dog owners in Old Town Alexandria, Va., where she lived for more than 25 years. If you knew Mindy, you eventually knew all her friends, or at least some good stories about them.”
