     SLADE -- Jo Heyer Slade, born March 27, 1925, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and a grand one at that, passed away on Saturday, September 4, 2010. She was 85. She was born Billie Jo Ellis in Chandler, Arizona, one of five children of Horace and Henrietta Ellis. Her father's depression-era electrician's work brought her to New Mexico, where she graduated from Carlsbad High School. She was married to Charles Nowell Heyer, Pat Maxwell, and Ernest Slade. In her final years, her companion was her beloved Lhasa Apso, Saki. Jo Slade was a consummate executive secretary, working at Sandia Labs, GE Tempo, Kaman Sciences, and for Dean Fitz of the UNM School of Medicine in its earliest days. She was an accomplished cook, painter and poet laureate of her family's personal greeting cards. She brought humor and grace to whatever she did and never forgot the lyrics to her favorite 40's songs. Her greatest skill and dearest love was caring for and nurturing her children, grandchildren, and great - grandchildren, always accepting and treasuring their unique, even eccentric, qualities. She is survived by her sons, Lynn Slade (Susan Zimmerman), Stephen Heyer, and Barton Slade (Natalie); her daughter, Sheron Criswell (Bill); six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and many other loving family members. She will be greatly missed, but never replaced.3

      SLADE, HALEY ALEXANDRIA July 29, 1993-September 17, 2013 Haley Slade, beloved daughter, sister, and friend, passed away September 17, 2013. Haley was a 2011 graduate of Sandia High School. After completing requirements for an Associates Degree at Central New Mexico Community College, she entered the University of New Mexico this fall with plans to major in business with a communications minor. She was a voracious reader and a straight-A student. Haley loved the outdoors, especially, skiing, snowboarding, four-wheeling, camping, and with enthusiasm, all kinds of motorsports. She was also a heck of a shot with a .22. Haley was always a leader, and a constant and faithful friend and family member. Her twin brother, Taylor, says she would defend anyone, whether or not you might think they deserve it. Her greatest joys came in helping others and caring for animals. She is survived by her brother, Taylor; her sister, Lisa; her best friend, Kayleigh; and her loving parents, Bart and Natalie Slade. They and all who knew her will miss her and the imprint she would have continued to make on their, and all of our, lives. There will be a Celebration of Life for Haley from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 26, at Calvary Chapel, 4001 Osuna Rd. NE, Albuquerque. In lieu of flowers, donations would be welcome to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105.2
