Della Mary Hicks made her last wildly inappropriate comment on May 16th. Della was born August 23, 1954 the second born (and obvious favorite) of five children to Bill and Ruth Braziel. She liked four letter words almost as much as she loved the ocean and her boat. She leaves behind a dysfunctional family that she was very proud of. Her husband of 47 years, Roddy, her children: Jamey, Brandon & Jessica, six grandchildren, four siblings, a sh*tload of nieces, nephews and friends she thought of family. They will tell stories of her misbehavior to their children's children forever and Roddy will feel the ghost of her censure every time he chews ice for the rest of his days. A Celebration of Life is scheduled on June 5th at Esker Point Beach in Groton, CT to remember a life that was lived to the fullest. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Della brought joy to everyone who knew her. She was loved by all the boat families on Center Dock in Noank. If you had a bad week, all it took was a short visit with Della and life was good. She will be missed.
