Hedderman-Ellenes, Linda Ann
Birth: Tuesday, July 31, 1951
Residence: Port Republic, Maryland
Death: Friday, June 20, 2014 at the age of 62

Linda Hedderman-Ellenes, 62, of Port Republic, MD passed away on June 20, 2014. She was born on July 31, 1951 to Nelson and Alma Hedderman.

Her life was filled with family, laughter, and love. As a child, she was a bit of a tom-boy and was selected for a competitive boys' baseball team before girls played on baseball teams. The coach was delighted with her skills, until one play-off game when she slid into home and her hat flew off, letting her pinned-up hair fall down. The coach cried, but had to release her from the team.

Linda graduated from Bladensburg High School in one of the first vocational cosmetology classes offered by the school. She increased in skill and faithful customers until she became an owning partner in Lindas II, a beauty shop in Landover Hills.

At the age of 40, Linda sold the shop and moved into the field of information technology. Through hard work and perseverance, she earned an AA degree from CSM that she applied to her new career. As an analyst for Mil Corporation, she supported systems and system training for the Navy and TSA and took great pride in her accomplishments within the organization.

Her final years were consumed with a battle against cancer. As in all things, she approached this with the same determination and fortitude that she had for meeting all challenges in her life. She spent three years engaged in a valiant fight and finally succumbed surrounded by those who loved her most dearly.

Through her entire life, there was never a task too small or too large, or a favor she was not willing to cheerfully do for others. As a result of her positive attitude and good heart, Linda had a wide circle of friends and family who loved her unconditionally.
Linda is survived by her husband and long-time best friend, Elwood Ellenes; her mother, Alma Davis; her father, Nelson Hedderman; her sister, Donna McKalip; and her brother, Alan Hedderman. She also leaves behind her in-laws, Knut and Eleanor Ellenes, Torvald and Sherry Ellenes, Berit and Steve Veletis, and Christian and Carolyn Ellenes. She will be greatly missed by her nieces and nephews, including Amy Hedderman, Bobby Hedderman, Ryan McKalip, Eric Ellenes, Nora Ellenes, Bryan Ellenes, Amy Fontana, Krista Bowman, and Alexandra Veletis and several great- nieces and great-nephews.

She was an active member of St. John Vianney Parish, where she and her husband set-up social breakfasts after Sunday Masses. A memorial mass will be offered on June 30, 2014, 11:00 AM at St John Vianney Catholic Church 470 Main Street, Prince Frederick, MD 20678.

Funeral arrangements provided by the Rausch Funeral Home, Port Republic, MD. Contributions made be made in Linda's memory to the American Cancer Society.
