We mourn the passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Eleanor died peacefully at Michener Extendicare. She was born at a rural property in Sinnett, SK. to Stoney and Anna Helgason.

She then worked in L.I.D. offices in Saskatchewan until she married Tom (Bud) Hicks in 1954 and raised four children. Mom was known for her baking, cooking, and enjoying her social groups including her Bridge ladies and the Koffee Klatch. Eleanor spent many years as a volunteer including the John Howard Society and Sunnybrook United Church.
