YANCY JOAN MARIE SLOAN
1938 - 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Yancy Joan Marie Sloan on the 17th day of December 2014 at the age of 76, but with fortune and joy having had Yancy as a mother and grandmother.
Yancy is survived by her sons, William Sloan (grandchildren, Rhiannon and Spencer) and Charles Sloan (spouse Marcy, grandchildren Kelsie and Morgan); as well as many relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her husband, Archibald Alexander Sloan.
Born in Flin Flon, MB. Yancy spent her adult life in Winnipeg. She was devoted to her family and when her children were young, spent countless hours volunteering at the local community center where she made many lifelong friendships
Yancy had a special interest in the activities of her children and grandchildren. It didn't matter what sport her children were playing, you could always hear from the stands, HURRY! HURRY! QUICKLY! QUICKLY! SHOOT IT! SHOOT IT!! She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, whether it be baking cookies, making crafts or swimming in her pool, it was always a great time at Grandma's. Yancy was also known to enjoy the odd game of bingo, unfortunately she wasn't able to win that “Big” pot she was always talking about.
No service will be held and in lieu of flowers, if you wish, make a donation to the organization of your choice
We would like to thank the staff at the Riverview Health Centre.
Wojcik’s Funeral Chapel & Crematorium, 2157 Portage Avenue, 204.897.4665, is in care of arrangements. wojciksfuneralchapel.com
When we were children, and wanted something Yancy would always say, "When our ship comes in". At the time we may not have realized but having her in our lives, our ship was always in.
She will be greatly missed
