On Friday, April 16, 2021, Leanora “Sally” Ruth King Slider, age 50, of Donora, PA and Lancaster, OH passed away in St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital. She was born in Cleveland, OH on March 6,1971 and raised by her father, Jeremiah King, and mother, Ruth F. King, in southwestern Pennsylvania.

Sally is survived by her birth mother, Gloria Jean Cheek; life partners, Steven and Rebecca Hardin; children, William (Jessica) Slider and their children, Carmen and Rajha Slider; Malea (Christopher) Rose and their children, Varian and Christopher Rose; Carrie (Jimirro) Slider; four sisters and five brothers. Besides her parents who raised her, Sally was also preceded in death by her husband, Russell Carl Slider.

Sally had a huge appetite for learning. After high school she earned her associate degrees in Computer Science and the Culinary Arts and was ordained by the Universal Life Church. Sally had a passion for writing, drawing, reading, and cooking but “no greater love” did she have but her love for her grandchildren. She cherished every moment with them, and they are forever her pride and joy. Sally’s last wish was that her family cherish and always look after each other. In lieu of flowers, donations to her family will be accepted at 1235 East Walnut St., Lancaster, Ohio 43130.
