Mrs. 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.

Pallbearers: Bill Sloan, Malcolm Sloan, Jr. David Sloan, Joshua Sloan, Andrew Sloan, Lance Farrar, Trey Kimbro and Victor Jeffreys.

    Dear Sloan family, we are so sorry for your loss. We are also grieving the loss of Ann, our wonderful neighbor and friend for 19 years. We know that being home with Jesus gives her great joy, and we thank God that we will see her again when our journey here has ended. In the words of a wonderful song from way back in the 1970s, “Friends are friends forever if the Lord is Lord of them.”
  3. Karin Wilkerson says:
    Bill, Sharon, Malcom, David & Family, My deepest condolences on the loss of your mother, sister, grandmother and friend. She was certainly one special lady, but all who knew her, knew that! I was so blessed to have known her the past couple of years as she touched my heart with her out pouring of love for ALL those around her. She was an inspiration and an amazing example of what kind of person God desires His children to be. My prayer is that you find peace in knowing she is rejoicing and shouting the praises of God with all those loved ones gone on before and that He give you comfort through this difficult time as only He can.

    Ann was a beautiful person! She was so faithful to her father and I always enjoyed our visits when she would bring Brother Baker to the Senior center for lunch. Always a sweet smile and selfless spirit.

    Mrs. Ann was a sweet soul. There wasn’t a time I can remember when she didn’t have a smile on her face. She made you feel like the most important person in the world when she saw you. I will miss her dearly as will my husband who knew her much longer than I did. I was just happy to have known her.

    Aunt Ann will forever remain in my heart; she was a beautiful & kind Christian person with the face of an Angel ; she taught me so much over the years in the way that she lived her life through & for the Lord. She was a huge Blessing in all of our lives.
  9. Rachel Binion says:
    Mrs. Ann was one of my Sunday School Teachers at Mt. Olivet. She played the piano so beautifully over the years. She always spoke in such a soft tone, she always greated you with a smile, and a hug. She was the most sweetest person I have ever met that walked this earth. I truly believe she was an angel. I had a special bond with Mrs. Ann as I grew up. Even as the years passed each time I saw her she would greet me the same. She was dear friend to my grandparents as well. To think of Mrs. Ann you always thought “love” she showed it to so many people in many ways. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She will always hold a special place in my heart. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

      Some of my best childhood memories were spending weekends at Aunt Ann & Uncle Malcolm’s house! We would make the best homemade ice cream! Aunt Ann would put all the ingredients in the container, pour in the ice & rock salt & we all took turns turning the churn handle, knowing the reward was a big bowl of the best ice cream ever! Uncle Malcolm grilled the best hamburgers & all the kids played tag, climbed trees &
      enjoyed life to the fullest. Aunt Ann always showered us with her loving, Godly spirit & made sure everyone had everything they needed. She was a perfect example of a true Christian. Her loving, caring, non-judgemental ways will carry on in my heart forever. She was a true angel to all!!
  10. NANCY BUSH says:
    I had never met such a sweet, loving, caring, person as Ann. She made me feel so welcome when I first came to Mt. Olivet Baptist Church. She would always give me a sweet kiss on the cheek which made me feel so loved. Ann I sure will miss you. As you said to me that we were kindred spirits. I love and will surely miss you.
  11. Kathy Maher says:
