Elizabeth A. Slocum

November 3, 1928 — April 2, 2013

Elizabeth A. Slocum, 84, of Marathon, died on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at home.

She assisted on the family dairy farm in Freetown for decades and taught school at McGraw for a short time.  She was a member of St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Marathon and was active in the Altar and Rosary Society.  She was also a member of Little York and Marathon Garden Clubs, Auraca Herb Society, Seven-Valley Golf League, Cortland County Cooperative Extension and Farm Bureau and a former Republican Committee Member.

Elizabeth is survived by her six children, Thomas (Bernadette), Paul (Robin), John (Valerie Fox), James (Linda), Nancy (Gary Sprouse) and Mark Slocum; eight grandchildren, Kelley, Jenny, Zachary (Maryana), Andrew, Dorthea (Tom), Michael, Sarah (Jason) and Sonya; siblings, Mary (Andrew) Jacobi, James (Jeanne) McMahon; sister-in-law, Laura McMahon and many nieces and nephews.  Elizabeth was a life long resident of Marathon.

She was predeceased  by her husband, Beryl in 1998 and by siblings, Rita, Richard, Ralph and Paul McMahon.

A funeral mass will be offered 12:00 p.m. Friday at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Marathon.  Burial will be in Marathon Cemetery.  Friends of the family may call Friday from 10:00 until 11:45 a.m. at St. Stephen’s Catholic Church.  In lieu of donations, we think that Mom would like it if you planted a flower in her memory.

The family wishes to thank Dr. Salmon and Dr. El Hassan, Mary Doss, Cheryl and the lovely ladies who helped so much, particularly this last year.  We are also eternally grateful for the honorary Slocums, Jennie Ference, Susan Cave and Dorothy Griep whose kindness and dedication meant so much to Mom and also to her dear friends who called and sent cards.
