Hach, Delores A.
Delores A. Hach, 84, of Cedar Rapids, died Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2013, in her home surrounded by her family. A Celebration of her Life will be held in the Spring, close to Mother’s Day, in honor of the fact that she was like a second Mother to her many nieces and nephews. Papich-Kuba Funeral Service is serving the family.
Delores “Dorie” is survived by her nephew, Jerry (Beverly) Swore of Boone; nieces, Cindy (Ken) Ystesund of Albuquerque, N.M., Vicki Newburn and Sandra Swore-McCright, both of Cedar Rapids; and niece-in-law, Raejeanne Swore of Cedar Rapids. She is also survived by many great- and great-great-nieces and nephews; and her little dog, Missy.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Dorothy, Esther and Betty; an infant brother, Glen; and nephews, Ron Armstrong and Rick Swore.
Dorie was born July 22, 1928, in Chelsea, Iowa, the third daughter of Edward and Emma (Modracek) Hach. She graduated from Chelsea High School in 1945 and moved with her family to Cedar Rapids in November 1945. She worked in the accounting department at Rockwell-Collins for 32 years, retiring in 1991.
Aunt Dorie was happiest when she was working in her yard and flower gardens. Her backyard on Second Street SE was like a park, very well-manicured and always vibrant with colors.
Dorie was quick-witted, loving, kind and generous. She was always there for her family. Her nieces and nephews considered her their “other” Mother.
Throughout her lifetime, she was teased about the way she treated her dogs. Many people would say, “I want to come back as one of Dorie’s dogs.”
She will be forever missed by Missy, her family and her many friends. She was a sweet soul.
Dorie’s family would like to extend a thank you to the many kind folks at Hospice of Mercy, especially Jennifer, Lisa and Kay.
The family also requests memorials be directed to Hospice of Mercy, Cedar Rapids, or a charity of the donor’s choice in memory of Delores A. Hach.
