It is with heavy hearts that the family of Brenda Lee Hachey announce her passing, which occurred on December 25, 2022, at the Saint John Regional Hospital, Saint John, NB. Born in Saint John on December 17, 1965, she was the daughter of Donna (Allen) and the late Henry Hachey.
Brenda had a passion for Bingo, even foregoing, or rescheduling, family dinner to make sure she was at her favourite seat, bingo dabber in hand. Brenda also had a love of classic hard rock like AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, and Guns’n’Roses.
Brenda claimed she didn't like the dog, yet she was the first to cook an extra hotdog for Chewy, and make sure that Chewy got the skins off any chicken the family would be eating.
When it came to Brenda’s family, Brenda was fiercely loyal, and would be either the first to defend everyone, or let you know when you were the one to make offense against someone she cared for. She doted on both Kayla, and then Terry, making sure they always knew they were loved.
Brenda is survived by her adoring husband, who loved her at first sight, Shawn Tait; children: Kayla Hachey and Terrance Tait; Mother, Donna Hachey; Mother-in-law and Father-in-law Donna and Travis Goddard; father-in-law, Bruce Tait.
Brenda is also survived by her brother Jim (Wanda) Hachey; Sisters-in-law Melanie (Dennis) Hawthorne, Tiffany Davis, Angelica (Marvin) Petley, and Joseph (Brenda) Beauregard: nieces; Christina Hachey, Stephanie Hachey, Brooke Armstrong, Courtney Brown, and Jaime-Leigh Tait; nephews: Spencer Hawthorne, Brogan Davis and Isaac Davis, Azareth Johnson, Calvin Basque, Adrian Basque, Nick Basque and Damien Mahoney; and extended family members: Sheryl Allen, Dora Marsden (Allen), Sharon Allen, Kim Gennis (Allen), Gail Bennet (Allen), Wendell Allen, and Sandra MacPherson (Allen).
In addition to her father, Henry Hachey, Brenda was predeceased by her sister-in-law, Norma-Mae Armstrong.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Reid’s Funeral Home (506-832-5541), 1063 Main Street, Hampton, NB, where visitation will be held on Thursday, January 5, 2023, from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. A private interment will take place at a later date.
