Delia Hachey

Obituary of Delia Elizabeth Hachey

The death of Delia “Duckie” Elizabeth Brown, Young, Hachey occurred at the DECRH on Saturday 19, June 2021. Born 20 August 1929 in Marysville, she was the daughter of the late Amber (Collings) Brown and Charles Brown.

Delia, known as Duckie for most of her life grew up in Marysville. She attended the Marysville School and FHS.

Although most of the Browns worked at the Cotton Mill, after high school, Delia went to work at the Marysville Store. In her later years she often told stories of her days at the Marysville Store including the fact that they closed for special Marysville Royals baseball games. Other memories of her youth included lots of tales of time on the river swimming and skating.

While working at the Marysville Store she met and married Mullan Young. They settled in Marysville and started their family. After a few years and two children the family moved to Ontario where two more children were born then the family moved back to Marysville.

Delia was widowed at a young age with four children from the ages of 4-12. She learned hairdressing and soon had a successful business with a salon set up in her home. She was able to earn a living and be home for the children.

In time Delia re-married and the family moved to Germany to join her husband, Louis Hachey. In Germany a daughter was born and after 3 years the family returned to Marysville where a few years later another daughter was born.

Sadly Delia was once again widowed and left with two very young children.

Delia was an exceptional person who faced many tragedies in her life but showed great strength and resilience and just carried on doing what was necessary.

In her sixties she made a move to Stanley and was very active in the community.

She was a mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, aunt and friend. (A special mention of her friend Susan York).

She was a talented artist. She sewed and made countless wedding dresses, prom dresses, coats, blouses and skirts. She even made cases for Walter’s drums. She was a singer, gardener, crafter, confident and handy person. One thing she was not was a complainer.

She was a member of a variety of clubs and organizations over her life and attended the United Church of Canada.

Her last three years were spent at Paradise Villa. The family is grateful for the care she received there.

Delia is survived by her son Walter Young (Barbara), and four daughters, Judy Smith (Late Stephen), Edith Dextraze (Gerry), Dianne Hachey (Doug Scott), and Michelle Tommy (Geoff), nine grandchildren, Stephanie Young, Graham Smith (Ralphina), Colin Smith, Mathieu Dextraze (Chrissy), Emily Dextraze, Gen Douthwright (Jeremy), Conner Scott, Kaitlin Tommy, Kristen Tommy, 5 great grandchildren, sisters in law, and several nieces and nephews.
