Eleanor Fae Heslop (1923-2009) was the wife of J Malan Heslop.
Eleanor Fae Heslop, who was known throughout her life as Fae, was born Eleanor Fae Stokes to Joseph Alfred Stokes and Georgiana Petersen on November 29, 1923. She met J Malan Heslop at Weber College, Ogden, Utah, and they were married in the Salt Lake Temple on 12 May 1944. J shipped out for Europe almost immediately while Fae worked at the Boy Scout office in Ogden, Utah. After World War II they moved to Logan, Utah, where J attended Utah State Agricultural College and Fae worked in the purchasing department of the college. They moved to Salt Lake City in 1948 when J joined the Deseret News staff as chief photographer.
J and Fae raised a family of five children—Paul, daughter Lyn, Scott, Ann, and Don and became the grandparents of nineteen. During J’s busy career, Fae was not often able to accompany him on his international travels; however, in 1985 she was one of the tour guides on the BYU “Temples of Europe and Lands of the Bible Tour.” Although she didn’t contribute photographs she did maintain a journal of this trip. She served with J as mission president of the Chicago North Mission in the late 1980s.
It was during J’s retirement years that they were able to travel extensively, including internationally, and Fae became an important photographer in documenting these trips. After almost 65 years of marriage, Fae passed away on 21 March 2009.
