Eleanore Hedden


We regret to announce the passing of Eleanore Viola Hedden on April 29, 2010, at the Polson Extended Care Unit of Vernon Jubilee Hospital, at the age of 90 years.

She was a former longtime resident of Revelstoke prior to retirement to Vernon about 40 years ago. Eleanore played the saxophone for many years with the Backyard Band, accompanied by her husband on the trombone. She was also a fanatical and dedicated bridge player. Eleanore was predeceased by one daughter, Sandra Morrison (Dave). She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband of 70 years, Learoy Hedden of Vernon; twins Elaine (Rudy) Mayert and Marvin (Lillian) Hedden, and twins Elvin (Roseanna) and Eldon (Nora); 12 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren, as well as many extended family members.

A Celebration of Life Service will be announced at a later date.

Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home
