Edalene Page Hope


Edalene Page Hope, age 95, passed away peacefully Wednesday, November 17, 2021 surrounded by family at T J Samson Hospital. She was born February 22, 1926 in the Oak Hill community in Monroe County, KY to the late Grady and Evie Davis Page. In 1944 she married Harry Gladwell Hope, who preceded her in death in 2004. They were married 60 years.

   She was a wonderful neighbor, friend to many, known for her quick wit and loved by all. She was a member of the Willow Shade Church of Christ, Summer Shade Homemakers Club and Metcalfe County Democratic Women’s Club for many years.  “Ma” was always cooking and preparing for others and welcomed everyone in her home.

Granddaughter Jane Ellen said it best – “There is a little bit of her in all of us”.

   Preceding her in death besides her parents and husband were 6 sisters, Velma Nichols, Thelma Martin, Holda Billingsley, Orene Garmon, Dora Henry and Louise Page and three brothers, Burford Page, Finis Page and Ira Page.

I'm so sorry to hear of Mrs. Hope's passing. She was a wonderful lady.I remember when we were raising the tobacco on my Uncle Gene's farm. Gladwell would let Uncle Gene keep his tractor at their house. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. RIP Beautiful Angel
