In Memory of

Hedy D. Jellinek

March 17, 1923 - May 12, 2017


Hedy Jellinek, 94, died on May 12, 2017, in Orleans, MA. Widow of former WQXR Music Director and Vocal Scene host George Jellinek, she was -- until crippled by dementia -- an intellectual powerhouse and the wind beneath her more famous husband's wings. Multilingual and multitalented, she was an economist, educator, editor, and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Her loss is incalculable.
