Twelve Mile, Indiana

Eileen J. Slifer, 88, Twelve Mile, passed away on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, at her residence.

Born July 2, 1931, in Cass County, Indiana, she was the daughter of Hugh Arnold Kingery and the former Alta G. Morrow.  On September 12, 1948, at the Baptist Temple in Logansport, she was married to Howard “J.R.” Slifer, and he preceded her in death on January 27, 2009.

Eileen attended Metea High School, and she lived most of her life in Twelve Mile.  She served on the Cass County Planning Commission from 1978-2010.  For many years, she had belonged to the Eastern Star, and she was a lifetime member of the VFW.  She worked alongside her husband for many years at their Ford dealership in Twelve Mile, Slifer Motors.  Many nights were spent with family and friends over the years listening to music, playing cards, and helping with events sponsored by Twelve Mile Fire Department, American Legion, and the Eagles Lodge.  She was known for her ornery wit and feisty personality.

Survivors include two daughters, Donita J. (Jim) Hook, Logansport; and Anita E. (Steve) Boldry, Rochester; eleven grandchildren, Rob Hook, Wendy Burton, Doug Hook, Bill Hook, Eric Slifer, Marcus Slifer, Gabby Slifer, Libby Bahr, Tammy Bonnell, Brad Boldry, and Scott Boldry; nineteen great-grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
