Obituary for Leona J. Elmendorf

Leona J. Elmendorf, affectionately referred to as ‘Lee’ was a long term area resident.  She died at the age of 85 years old on Saturday, September 8, 2018, at the Lutheran Care Center, Poughkeepsie. Lee’s selflessness and strength brought joy to the lives of all who had the pleasure of knowing her.  
       Lee was born in Poughkeepsie on January 1, 1933.  She was the daughter of the late John and Marion Overfield.  She graduated from the first class of the newly opened FDR High School (now Haviland Middle School). Lee worked as a secretary for the Town of Hyde Park Highway Dept. for 20 plus years until her retirement.  She was also a member and longtime treasurer of the town of Poughkeepsie Senior Group.  She enjoyed traveling with the senior group with notable trips to Ireland, Scotland, Hawaii and Alaska.  
       On July 6, 1975, she married Charles ‘Chuck’ Elmendorf. He predeceased her in 2000. Survivors include her two sons, Ernest J. Hedrick Jr. and wife, Lorraine of Salt Point NY, Keith Hedrick and wife Donna of Modena NY; four grandchildren, Raymond and wife Roseanne, Michael and wife Colleen, Ernie and wife Ashley and Kristilee; four great grandchildren; Hannah, Mollyanne, Oliver and Weston; and brother, Richard Overfield of Florida; and many nieces and nephews.   
       Lee enjoyed life with friends, but especially enjoyed her time with family, spoiling her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren whenever she could. 
       Calling hours will be from 4 to 7 pm, Thursday, September 13th, at Sweet’s Funeral Home, Inc., Rte. 9, Hyde Park.
