Nancy C. Sloan, 73, of Greene passed away January 30, 2023 after a decades long battle with Lewy Body Dementia. She was predeceased by her husband of 51 years, Ed Sloan; parents, Walter and Vivian Cairns; in-laws, Henry and Christine Sloan; brothers, Bryce and Bill Cairns; sister-in-law, Nancy (Redner) Cairns and niece, Wendy Fagan. She is survived by her daughter, Jennifer (Peter); grandchildren, Lauren and Zachary; step-grandsons, Austin, Arik (James), Dylan (Alecia) and Fletcher; step great-grandson, Jacob as well as a sister, brother-in-law, many nieces, nephews and their children. She was 1 of 38 first-cousins and thoroughly enjoyed the large family gatherings. Nancy and Ed were married June 21, 1969. They moved to Greene in October of that year as they both had begun working for Raymond Corporation. She was an incredibly dedicated employee for over 40 years. Her favorite job was working in the photo shop. Her mentor taught her not only how to take perfect pictures but how to develop the photos; from there the passion blossomed. Nancy was artistic with handmade crafts and had an eye for color. For years, Nancy painted the wooden items that Ed made for family and friends. She painted and adorned pumpkins for Halloween. For many years, she decorated the Main Lobby at Raymond as well as the Church altar for Holidays. She had been a member of The Voices of Raymond when she was early on in employment. She also performed small roles in the local Performing Arts as she loved to sing. Many years later, she joined the choir at the Congregational Church in Greene. She was an avid golfer, belonging to two different leagues until arthritis made it too difficult to grip the clubs. She would get lost in Hallmark movies because they were sappy with happy endings. Nancy loved having Jennifer’s friends stay over and the door was open to all. They also hosted Exchange Students from Brazil, Australia, Norway and Finland. She is still considered the “American Mom” today. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend. Being “Mimi” brought immense joy. She taught Lauren how to paint, bake and ride a bicycle. She was also an animal lover that donated to the local charities regularly. She was truly selfless, compassionate, generous and genuine. A funeral service will be held 11:00am Saturday, February 4, 2023 at the First Congregational Church UCC, 28 N. Chenango St, Greene, NY 13778. Friends of the family may call from 10:00am until the time of service at the First Congregational Church. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice in Nancy’s honor.
