Sloan, Mary Katheryn -
Willard - Mary Katheryn (Katheryn) Thompson Sloan passed away peacefully at the age of 86 at Willard Care Center on September 2, 2017 at 9:50pm.
She was born to J. Ray Thompson and Laura Dodd Thompson on October 5, 1930 and resided in Hayden, MO with her siblings William Ellis, Laura Dean, Warren J., Lee Hayden, Sidney Kenneth, Val Gene, and Donna.
She wed Paul Sloan in Harrison, Arkansas on August 12, 1950 and had their beloved twins Paulette and Paul Ray Sloan on August 7, 1951 while he was serving in the Korean War.
Katheryn was witty and beautiful and will be remembered by her many adoring grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, brother and sister-in-law’s, and a host of loving friends for her sweet disposition, her generosity, and her amazing cooking and baking skills.
She and her husband Paul Sloan spent their adult lives working on the milk farm and serving the Willard community at Glidewell Baptist Church. They enjoyed traveling as often as the milking life would allow and especially enjoyed taking trips with their children and grandchildren.
Mary Katheryn was dearly loved and will be greatly missed but we know that she is resting in the arms of her Lord and Savior and we will see her again.
We will be joining together to honor Katheryn and her blessed life at Glidewell Baptist Church, 5801 North Farm Road 141, Springfield, MO 65803, on Wednesday, September 6, 2017. Visitation will be held at 1pm and funeral services at 2pm.
