L. Diane Hachey

L. Diane Hachey passed away peacefully at Lakeview Manor after a long battle with Alzheimer’s in Riverview, New Brunswick on Monday, January 24, 2022 in her 81st year. She was the beloved wife of John Hachey and dear mother of Ben (Ginette), Ray (Kristen), Sue (Rob) and Greg (Judy). Dear daughter of the late Dorothy and Clifford Dysart and predeceased by her sister Sharon (Arbeau). Survived by her sister Carolyn (Slocum) and countless nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Comforted by her longtime friend Ann throughout her illness and her final days.

As a mother and grandmother, Diane modelled love, joy, and patience for all who knew her. In her long career in education, she touched so many lives in Riverview. The playschool she operated for years meant the house was always full of little voices in happy, busy tones. Diane’s laughter and energy made every family get-together brighter. She was an outgoing and talkative person who always seemed to run into someone she knew whenever she was out. Diane belonged to many wonderful organizations over the years, from the Lansdowne Ladies to the Ladies’ Society to the Kinettes to Meals on Wheels. Hers was a life well-lived, and we are all richer for having known her.

Our thanks to all the wonderful, caring staff at Lakeview Manor who gave superlative care to our mother for so many important years.

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, a visitation and funeral mass to celebrate Diane’s life will take place at a later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd, Riverview (869-2007). In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Alzheimer Society of Canada, Salvation Army Lakeview Manor, or a charity of one’s choice.
