Lynette Elaine Sides Sloan, age 67, of Hendersonville, TN, passed away Sunday, September 10, 2019, at Hendersonville Medical Center in Hendersonville, TN.
A native and long-time resident of Athens, she was the daughter of the late Darrell Ray and Evelyn Wanoka Reynolds Sides and was preceded in death by a son, Jason Daniel Sloan.
Lynette was a loving mother to two sons, Nana to three adoring grandchildren, and colleague to librarians around the state of Tennessee. She was known for her generous spirit and willingness to give above what was needed to love others and to serve the libraries of Tennessee. She will be missed by so many but she did what we all long to do with our lives-leave this world a better place than we found it.
Lynette served in the library system for 44 years with 34 of those years in Tennessee. Over the years she was a branch librarian, head librarian, regional director and finally director of regional libraries. She loved libraries and the communities they served with her whole life.
Survivors include a son and daughter-in-law: Nathan and Sarah Sloan
Grandchildren: Asia, Isaiah, and Jeremy
Brother: Danny Sides
