Slocum, Jeanne T. NISKAYUNA Jeanne T. Slocum, 81, formerly of Clifton Park, entered into eternal life on Sunday, July 15, 2012 at Wynwood of Niskayuna. Jeanne was born on December 28, 1930 in Elmira, N.Y., the daughter of the late James and Mary Frawley Tormey. She was a graduate of Elmira Catholic High School and St. Joseph's Hospital School of Nursing. Jeanne was employed as a registered nurse at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C. She married her loving husband, Lt. Col. Donn C. Slocum, on August 2, 1952. Donn and Jeanne's family moved and lived around the world while Donn served in the United States Air Force for 20 years. After Donn's retirement from the USAF, she was very happy to return home to New York State. Jeanne shared her talent for nursing with her growing family and her community. She was an active member of the Clifton Park Halfmoon Ambulance Corp. and a volunteer for the American Red Cross. Jeanne was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and a cherished "Grammie" who brought a warm smile, a listening ear, and a point of view to all those she loved. Her love made a house a home with open doors that always welcomed others in to join the family. She had a mother's hug that lasted long after she let go, which we will always remember as her special gift to all of us. She was a communicant of St. Edward the Confessor Church. Jeanne was predeceased by her parents; a grandson, Christopher Goody; and her eight brothers and sisters. In addition to her husband, survivors include her devoted children, Michael J. (Debra) Slocum of Marietta, Ga., Kathleen S. (Paul) Goody, of Burnt Hills, Peter J. (Cheryl) Slocum of San Jose, Calif., Julie C. (Lino Cohen) Slocum of Ballston Spa, Timothy J. (Ann) Slocum of Burnt Hills, Mary (James) Slocum Fogg of Ballston Spa, Patricia S. (Matthew) Hall of Manlius, N.Y., Thomas C. (Kimberly) Slocum of Ballston Spa and Christopher R. (Julie) Slocum of Chapel Hill, N.C. Twenty-seven grandchildren, one brother-in-law and sister-in-law, and several nieces and nephews also survive her. The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to Dr. Paul Sorum, Maplewood Manor of Ballston Spa, Wynwood of Niskayuna, Hospice of Schenectady, and Sha-Tay Terry for all of their outstanding care. Calling hours will be held on Sunday, July 22, 2012 from 4-8 p.m. at the Gordon C. Emerick Funeral Home, 1550 Route 9, Clifton Park.
