Obituary For Farrah Lynn Jeanette Hachey

** Updated information:

A Celebration of Life for Farrah will be held on Saturday, August 28, 2021 at 1pm at The Golden Age Centre, 10222 101 Avenue, Grande Prairie, Alberta.

Our hearts are torn as we try to meet the surreal task of saying farewell to our Farrah; we know she would not like to have an impersonal obituary to be part of her goodbye; so this will be a tribute of sorts, and prelude to and eventual Eulogy – she might not like that term either so we shall see what wonderful ways we can create to honour her with deepest love and gratitude for the gift she was.

Farrah was born in Edmonton, Alberta on December 21, 1976 after she and her Momma were taken to the Royal Alec Hospital for urgent specialized care via air ambulance. a beautiful and very tiny Christmas angel at 4 pounds 2 ounces she came into the world with a feisty will to make it. That never changed. She was tiny and exquisite; born with pneumonia and other effects of being over 6 weeks premature; she stayed at under the expert care of the Royal Alec neq staff; her Mother is eternally grateful to the guardian angels who kept her baby safe and made her strong. She came home a month later at a whopping 5 pounds, to the delight of her Grandmother, Aunties and 2-year-old Brother. She was so loved, and she and her Brother grew and thrived in the circle of that love.

Farrah attended Wembley Elementary; Grande Prairie Christian School; Grande Prairie Composite High School; the GPRC where she excelled in Calculus and anything math related; she also completed 2 years of an Electrician’s apprenticeship, through the Women in Trades Program. Farrah was a very bright and diligent, she was a people person and also thought deeply about life’s mysteries and journeys. An intriguing combination of a delicate soul who could also be a force to reckon with; she was magnetic, and a delightful young woman. She had many friends of all backgrounds and worldviews and respected them all. Her best friend ever, her big bother Paul, sadly left this world too soon, and left a crushing wound on her tender heart and cast a long shadow over her spirit with his passing – things were never the same for her. He was her truest friend and champion who protected and cherished his little sister and played brilliant and hilarious pranks on her. She carried him in her heart in every season of her life to the very end. She took comfort in the brilliant destination of eternity with him and her many family and friends gone on before her. She also possessed an abundance of humility and would likely be giggling and rolling her eyes if she were to read these words.

Farrah loved people she had profound compassion; she was accepting, and inclusive of others she always had good words to say about the people who came into her life. She loved sharing the outdoors; she loved animals of all kinds and had a number of kitties over the years the most precious of these was Jenny who was the tiny angel who saved her as she grieved her Bother’s passing; her other baby and fur soul-mate her puppy Bodee who is lovingly cared for by her good friends Lee and Leanne who were her part of her family of creation. Also like a sister is Robin, and her beloved Ben, a boy she adopted as her little brother years ago, and she watched over like a son. Friends of her girlhood, Sarah, Bobby Jo, Tarra; Char, have been very supportive to her family in this time.

Farrah enjoyed dance and was in ballet for many years she also took highland dancing; and violin; she attended Pioneer Girls; she had many interests. A true tomboy, she could fix her own car; collected more tools than most men and was quite handy around the house. She loved a good challenge and would always help a friend in need. Her sense of humor is literally legendary among those who knew and loved her – a mischievous wit and genius comebacks at the drop of a hat was one of he most enjoyable qualities she possessed – she loved to make overly serious things lighter and her impish grin and cute comic mannerisms left everyone in a better space after a few laughs with Farrah.

She was an imperfect, but loving and conscientious human being; who did the very best she could with the many dimensions of love, loss, and hope she encountered along the way. She longed for good things for everyone, she coached and, perhaps at times, mentored others in subjects of faith, love, self-compassion, and healing - and often sacrificed at a deep level to sustain those values. Perhaps, in part, this is why she is no longer here, but she gladly gave and received from other sojourners the wisdom of life’s lessons. These are a lot of words, but not nearly to enough to attempt to share the gift that was Farrah; generous, captivating, sweet spirit, with a wounded heart and imperfections that only made her able love us more – we were blessed in her being here with us.

Farrah is survived by her mother Debra Beauchamp-Turner (Alan); father Harold Hachey (Marchon) beautiful little sister Enora; aunties Cyndi Beauchamp-Ray (David); Julie Beauchamp-Hills (Neil); Angi Beauchamp (Jason Gaudet): Lindy Beauchamp-Chester (Ben) Mary-Ellen Beauchamp; many cherished and loving cousins: Amy and Jesse Watson; Lindsay, Jordan and Ethan Hills; Braden Kezar; Keeley and Landon Stubbs, Micah Chester; great cousins Zachary Watson; Logan and Brody Vollman, and many cherished extended family members and dear friends.

Farrah was predeceased by her brother, Paul H. Peter Hachey; grandmother, Anna Janette Lambert; grandfather, Malcom Beauchamp and her beloved cousin, Gregory M. Watson

  • THE BROKEN CHAIN.... We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly. In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to loose you, you did not go alone; cause a part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seem the same, but as God calls us one by one the chain will link again. God bless you Farrah, I'm so sorry.... - Sandra Holgate
