Southern Indiana loses a leader

Suzann Slayton, 74, died Monday



“She was a wonderful person,” said Clarksville Town Council President Bob Polston. “She’ll be missed here in Clarksville, I can tell you that.”

“She had a great insight into the needs of the community and how to deal with zoning matters in the best possible way,” added Clarksville Councilman John Gilkey, who serves as the council’s liaison to the city-town committee. 

Slayton’s service to the communities she helped wasn’t limited to their people. Though she didn’t advertise it, Slayton was also a defender of animals, and donated to the New Albany-Floyd County Animal Shelter. 

“She was a lady who just liked to stay under the radar,” said David Hall, shelter director. “She would donate. She would collect cans and drop them off here at the shelter.”

A funeral service for Slayton will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, June 27, at Swarens Funeral Home in Ramsey. Visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Read her full obituary on page A4 in today’s News and Tribune.
