Virginia "Ginny" Dachlet

Friday, April 19, 2019

Virginia "Ginny" Dachlet, 77, passed away April 12, at a Boise care facility. She was a long-time Mountain Home resident, with committed life partner, Wayne Waters.

Ginny was born the second child of William and Edith Wolf in a small town in Wisconsin. Her father was in the Forest Service and their family moved to several small Wisconsin towns until she graduated High School Wabeno. She then moved to Green Bay and met her first husband, LeRoy Dachlet. After three children and 25 years together, their marriage ended and Ginny retired from Air Force life and moved to make Mountain Home her home.

Ginny worked at the Mountain Home News where she met Wayne Waters. They eventually opened a tax practice from their home with their business associate, Sue Morris. Ginny always had a smile, a hug, or a sweet greeting for the clients who became her close friends and extended family to both Ginny and Wayne. She was known for her lavish "Tax Day" parties, and her Rum Cakes at Christmas were always a treat that was much anticipated. Ginny made the home and the office warm and inviting.

After many years together, Ginny's health required her to move to Assisted Living. Wayne visited often until his death about a year later. The next two years Ginny made fast friends and had loving caregivers at her home there. She was visited often by her two daughters.

Ginny was tragically preceded in death by her beloved son, Jason, in 1991. Ginny is survived by two sisters, Karen and Patti, and a brother, Bill, and numerous nieces and nephews from their families. She is also survived by her two daughters, Jayne Dachlet and Karen Bermensolo, and her grandchildren, Niki and Joe, and Kylie and Claudia. Wayne's family---his daughter, Josephine, and her children, Jessica and Dominick, his sisters, brother and their families, especially Pam, who helped care for him after Ginny's health failed, were family for her as well. She will be missed by all.

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 1 p..m. to 3 p.m. at Pam Waters-Bromley's house, 965 N 10th East, where we will share refreshments, stories and memories of Ginny. Graveside services will be private and she will be at rest in Mountain Home with her departed son—whose death took a part of her heart with her. Please join us in celebrating the contribution Ginny made to our lives.
