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.

Hachtel (Jane Angelone) of Rochester, MN; daughter, Jayne L.
