Ann-Baker-Sloan

Mrs. Ann Baker Sloan, 88, of the Leeville Community passed away peacefully in her home in Lebanon on September 10, 2022.

Born June 5, 1934, in Robertson County, Tennessee, Billie “Ann” Sloan was the daughter of Bro. William L. and Bonnie Anderson Baker.

She was a member and faithful servant of the Mt Olivet Baptist Church where she started a food pantry to help others and faithfully played piano every Sunday morning until she retired.

Prior, she was a stay at home mom before she volunteered as a candy striper at Vanderbilt Hospital which she enjoyed immensely, always doing for others. She worked alongside her husband in their medical supply business.

After being a stay at home mom for many years, she decided she wanted to go back to work. She so enjoyed her years at Wilson Bank and Trust, with fellow employees and customers. She and Daddy both enjoyed their retirement years growing beautiful flowers, ferns and vegetable plants. Her mornings were filled with Bible reading and journaling with what she said the Lord wanted for her or for what He wanted her to do that day.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Malcolm Sloan, father, Bro. William L. Baker, and mother, Bonnie Anderson Baker. Father-n-law Oplis Sloan, Mother-in-law Eura Krantz Sloan Van Atta.

Survivors include her four children, Bill Sloan of Lebanon; Malcolm Sloan Jr. of Hermitage; David (Gena) Sloan of Mt. Juliet; and Sharon Sloan (Victor) Jeffreys of Mt. Hope, AL. Brother-in-law, Bobby (Nan) Sloan, Sister-in-Law, Joyce (Jack) Worrill of Knoxville. She was blessed with 6 grandchildren and 11 great children with 2 others on the way.
