Madeline E. Ohs-Sloan
Long-time Carlisle resident who loved being outside
Madeline E. (Stephen) Ohs-Sloan, of Curve Street and a summer resident of Duxbury, died peacefully, following a brief illness, on Wednesday, June 27, at Emerson Hospital in Concord. She recently celebrated her 90th birthday and was the cherished wife of James F. Sloan.
Madeline was born on June 15, 1928, as the daughter of the late Edward and Madeline (Hankinson) Stephen.

Madeline had a profound love for nature, animals and the outdoors in general. She cross-country skied well into her seventies, enjoyed relaxing by her swimming pool and tended to the beautiful flowers in her garden. She was particularly fond of birds, and often painted and maintained the birdhouses that graced her property.
In addition to her loving husband Jim, Madeline is survived by three children, Robin Dunn and her husband Steve of Richmond, New Hampshire,;Gail Schlegelmilch and her husband Harry of Leominster and Barry Ohs and his wife Marcy of Curve Street; her grandchildren, Andy Dunn, Spencer and Adam Schlegelmilch and Leah Shanahan, three great-grandchildren, Alex, Cody and Jack, a sister, Harriet Decatur of Burlington and several nieces and nephews.
Family and friends gathered for a visiting hour in the Dee Funeral Home, on Sunday, July 1 from 12 to 1 p.m., followed by a procession to Green Cemetery, where her graveside service was held at 1:30 p.m.
Contributions in her memory may be made to Care Dimensions Hospice, 75 Sylvan Street, Suite B-102, Danvers, MA 01923 or to Northeast Animal Shelter, 347 Highland Avenue, Salem, MA 01970.
