Mechele Rose Dachisen (nee Fish), a longtime Rockaway Township resident, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 1, 2018 in the embrace of her loving family. She was 51.
Mechele was born on April 28, 1967 in Dover and she was raised in Hopatcong. She had a smile that could light up a room and a heart of gold.

Mechele was also very active in cheerleading while in high school. Shortly after graduating high school, Mechele would meet her husband, Darren Dachisen, and the couple were married in 1989. They settled in Rockaway Township where they would eventually welcome two beautiful children into their family. Their twins, Darren Jr. and Kaylyn were the light of Mechele’s life. Mechele also had a special place in her heart for animals, especially her dogs, and she was an advocate for animal rights.
Mechele was an administrator with Samsung International in Ledgewood for several years. She put her career on hold seven years ago to raise her two children.
