Adele Hanchett
February 17, 1947 - November 11, 2020


We say goodbye to our Wife, Mom and Grandma, Adele Taylor Hanchett, age 73, on Nov 11, 2020. We have been blessed to know her. She was a strong woman full of faith and kindness.

Adele was born on Feb 17, 1947 to Mabel Davis and Leonard Allen Taylor in Boise, ID. She has one sister and two brothers.

Adele attended Utah State University where she meet the love of her life, Robert Brent Hanchett. They married on June 23 1966, in the Salt Lake Temple then went on to have 8 children together, 7 girls and 1 boy. Denise (Matt) Sunkees, Nicole Hanchett, Travis Hanchett, Portia (Troy Floyd) Hanchett, Raquel Hanchett, Monique (Bridger) Murray, Farah Alexander, and Kelee (Beau) Dugan. Adele's children have blessed her with 33 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren and 2 more on the way with many more to come.

Adele loved the Lord and lived her life with Christ being the center of every thought and action. One could feel her love through her example. She took meals to the sick, visited family and friends at home and in the hospital when needed. Her thoughts were not of her own comfort but for the comfort of others. She lived her religion with every action and service she did. Her greatest joy was working with children.

Adele served our community in many ways. At home, church, work and play. She was a homemaker, teaching children to cook, clean, make canned goods and many more life skills. She worked with the Scouting program for 20 years. She coached girl's and women's softball for 20 years. She was a big supporter of Trees for Charity. She loved to decorate her home for every holiday. At 70 plus years she still would go out in the cold and make sure all her Christmas lights were turned on.

Adele owned and operated Bridal Affairs for over 25 years. Through the years she touched many lives with her talents and love for others. From their first prom dress to their wedding gowns, she had a way of making each and every one of them feel like they were the center of the world.

Adele has been reunited with her daughter Nicole, her parents, her brothers and her great grandchild. She will be missed until we meet again.
