August 25, 1931 – April 13, 2018

Adele K. Hachtel, age 86, of Newark, DE and formerly of West Grove, PA, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 13, 2018.

Born in College Point, NY on August 25, 1931, she was the daugther of the late Henry A. and Stella (Goldsmith) Fehn.  Adele dedicated her career as a bookkeeper, working at Simes Lighting Co. in NYC, the DuPont Co. and Lithographic Arts in Newark.

A true baseball fan, you could always find Adele cheering on her beloved Brooklyn Dodgers and in later years, the NY Mets.  Adele enjoyed traveling, swimming, reading and cross-stiching.  While residing at Jenners Pond, she sang with the JP chorus, bowled with the Wei bowlers and managed the Heron’s Nest gift shop.  She will always be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and dear friend to many.

In addition to her parents, Adele was preceded in death by her brother, Jack Fehn.  She is survived by her loving husband of 67 years, Warren E. Hachtel; son, John E. Hachtel (Jane Angelone) of Rochester, MN; daughter, Jayne L. Hachtel (Deborah Smith) of Elkton; granddaughter, Joanna Hachtel of Fargo, ND; niece and nephew, Jack Fehn (Heather) and Nancy Fehn; great nephews, Harrison, John and Paul Fehn; and great niece, Kate Fehn.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 10:30 am until 11:30 am on Thursday, April 26, 2018, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 121 West Park Place, Newark, DE, where a memorial service will begin at 11:30 am.  Entombment will follow in Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery, 2465 Chesapeake City Road, Bear, DE.

    Our sincerest condolences prayers to all. Very nice memories we had when we all lived in College Point . I remember Aunt Del trying to teach me how to knit but being Left Handed it was a trial and a lot of patience. Our summers where always fun with barb-b-ques and swimming in the “pool” when we where young !! Now Aunt Del is joining her family and friends to watch over us! So sorry .Give Dad hugs from his Goddaughter and all the family from us .

    I just loved this lady, I have known her for 40+ years, as she worked for my Mother’s company when I was a teenager. She was ALWAYS smiling, positive and oh so sweet. Never a cross word to say about anyone or anything. I can still hear her laugh right now.

    I cannot imagine how much her family will miss her, she was so dear. Warren is also a real sweetheart, and I can see how they were married for so long. A perfect and beautiful couple! They even “starred” in our TV commercial once when my Mom had her gift shop!

    Adele was helping my Mom with her books up until just a couple of years ago, when they both couldn’t go out that much like they used to. My Mom, Kay Sciarra trusted her to the ends of the Earth.

    She will never be forgotten, and will be so dearly missed.
