Minnie Helen Heckert Sloan
1924 — 2021
On February 11, 1924, Minnie Helen Heckert Sloan was born. She left us on September 24, 2021 to be reunited with her “sweetheart” and “Poppy”, Dean Sloan.
She was born in Bluff City, Kansas to Elmer Harrison and Vera LaRue Bishop Heckert.
In the mid 1930s, the family moved across the state to Tribune, Kansas by horse and wagon, where her father became a wheat farmer and cattleman. During her 97 years, Helen witnessed dust bowls, The Great Depression, world wars, men on the moon, and the age of technology.
Her most prized possessions and greatest accomplishments in this life have been her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She never missed an opportunity to share their adventures, talents, and most recent accolades. Her sense of humor was contagious and her “Grannyisms” would send us into fits of laughter.
Helen is preceded in death by her parents, siblings, Elmer, Carl, Hattie, Eugene Heckert, and her husband, Dean Sloan.
She is survived by her children, Bill LeBow of Chandler, Arizona, Marilyn (Brady) Koroulis of Kaysville, Utah, Martha (Bill) Clemson of Elizabeth, Colorado, and David (Winnie) Sloan of Simi Valley, California. Helen was blessed with 8 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.
The family would like to extend a sincere thank you to ReNew Home Health and Hospice, especially to Tammy Goodwin, Kelli Davis and Bailey Sanford for their loving care of Helen and support of family members. Also, to the administration and staff of Whisper Cove Assisted Living and Memory Care for being so kind and welcoming to our mother.
A graveside service will be conducted at the Farmington City Cemetery on Friday, October 1, 2021 at 11:00am. Online guestbook at www.russonmortuary.com.
