Eleanor was born September 20, 1911 in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. She grew up and was educated in Canada, and as a child had many fond memories of visiting her paternal grandparent’s plantation in Georgia, USA during her summer vacations. Eleanor and her husband, Earl retired to New Smyrna Beach, FL in 1970 after selling their business in Niagara Falls, Canada. She will be remembered as a very independent lady who was also a giving and generous soul. Eleanor would help others before herself. She was a beloved member of Grace Episcopal Church, Port Orange for over 30 years. She was preceded in death by her two husbands, Earl Cripps and Norman Sedore. Eleanor is survived by her niece, Marion Austin and her husband, Keith; two nephews, Kenneth and Doug who all reside in Canada. Also her close friend and trustee, Bryan Heath.
