Nancy Sue Singleton was born on August 14, 1939, in Dallas, Texas, the daughter of James G. (Coley) Singleton and Inez Nichols Singleton. She passed from this earth on February 29, 2016 in Forney, Texas, after a valiant three-year battle with lung and brain cancer. Nancy graduated from Forney High School in 1956. As an adult, she lived in Dallas and later in Metairie, Louisiana. She returned to Forney after she was widowed and resided in her lovely home on Kaufman Street until her death. Nancy was a talented seamstress, interior designer, and a master quilter. She loved gardening, cooking, and putting together a lovely home. She created quilts that are considered works of art, competing in area, state and national quilt shows. She was awarded the Best of Show ribbons for her quilts at the Texas State Fair in the Obituaries years 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2010. Profiled in an October 20, 2011 article in the Dallas Morning News, Nancy was quoted as saying of some of her favorite quilts: “The ones you truly love, they make your heart sing.” It was certainly true that Nancy made her family’s hearts sing. Nancy was married to Archie Eugene Sloan on March 3, 1962. Gene preceded her in death as did her parents, her daughter Cindy Jene’ Sloan, and her grandson Jason diBartolo. She is survived by her daughters Susan and Stefani Sloan, her son Christopher Sloan, her granddaughters Jordan Willmon and Cindy Jene Sloan, and her grandsons Shane Sloan and Brandon Stover. She is also survived by her sisters Betty Shipley and Debbie Stuart (Aaron), several nieces and nephews, cousins, and other relatives. Nancy will be remembered as a gentle spirit who was creative, beautiful, and loving to her friends and family. We rejoice that she has been reunited with Gene, Cindy, Coley, Inez and Jason in God’s loving arms. Graveside services were held on March 2, 2016 at the Forney Hillcrest Cemetery. The family wishes to thank the many friends, neighbors, and family who were there to honor Nancy.
