The family of Nicole (Hachey) O'Neil formerly of College Street, Bathurst, is deeply saddened to announce her peaceful passing at the Edmonton General Hospice on Sunday April 24th, 2022 at the age of 60.

She survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Donald O'Neil, daughters Dana O'Neil and Ashley Blasco (William), 4 beautiful grandchildren: Ava-Jo, Cassidy, Rhys and Patricia.

As well as her siblings: Aurele Hachey (Georgette), Denise Hache (Gilles), Jeanine Hachey and Benoit Jr. Hachey (Joan) as well as many loving nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents Benoit Sr. Hachey and Leona (Boudreau) Hachey as well as her brother, William Hachey and sister Claudette Dugas.

How does one find the words to sum up such an amazing person and their life?
Not just across our country but across the world, Nicky touched the hearts of many!

Anyone that knew her knows just how big of a heart she had. Whether or not she was really in a position to help, she always found a way. Her family was her pride and joy. A proud daughter, sister, amazing wife, incredible mommy and best grammy, she loved unconditionally with all that she was.

Many of you will know, family was more than just blood relation to her, not just from the hockey players she and Don billeted, but many friends from all over the world were adopted as family also. She was always one to be sure your heart was full, and your belly too!

There is no doubt the words kind, loving, caring and loyal, among others, come to mind when we think of Nicole, goofy, a talented cook, phenomenal baker and accomplished singer. Above all, she was strong, many have even called her a superhero.

Without a doubt, she will be missed by many, but she was at peace, going home, and ready to watch over us all.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
