It is with sadness that the family announces the passing of Mary Easton Slocum, which occurred on Monday, October 12, 2020 at her residence in Waterborough at the age of 91. She was born on February 1, 1929 in Arbroath, Scotland, the daughter of the late William and Elizabeth (Smart) Nairn and wife of the late Clifford Slocum.
Mary was very involved in her local Legion Branch # 60, being a member of the Auxiliary for 50 years and secretary for 37 years.
She enjoyed playing cards, bingo, dancing and music. But it was spending time on the family farm that she enjoyed the most. She was the last surviving member of her family.
Mary will live on in the hearts of her daughters: Christine (Daryl) Morton, Wendy Reese, Elaine Vincent, Debbie (Mike) Chown; sons: Daryl (Marlene) Slocum, Gerald (Judi) Slocum, Brian (Linda) Slocum; son-in-law Howard Reese; seventeen grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren. Along with her parents and husband Clifford, she is predeceased by her son-in-law Eric Vincent, grandson Bradley Slocum, sisters Ester Nairn, Elizabeth Hooper, Janet Price and brother James Nairn.
