SLIMMONS (NEE HARPER), Eileen

Message by grandson Cory
Today the world has lost an amazing soul, an incredible wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Today, we lost gramma Slimmon and she will be missed by many and all of the people she ever encountered. She was a beautiful kind caring woman that always treated everyone as though they were her own. Grandma truly looked for the good in world, when all she had to do was look in the mirror and she would have found what was good in the world. I miss you and will forever cherish all you taught me. Love you always. Grandson Cory
