Andover, Ohio – Elynne J. Slater, age 79, died on Monday, May 18, 2015, at St. Elizabeth Health Care Center in Youngstown, Ohio. She was born on July 4, 1935, in Ashtabula, Ohio, a daughter of Beulah Sarah (Fobes) and Elwyn John Kinleyside. Elynne was a 1953 graduate of Andover High School and attended Kent State University for two years. She worked for the Pymatuning Valley School System for more than twenty-seven years, serving as school district Treasurer for the majority of her career. On April 4, 1981, she married Richard S. Slater. Elynne attended the United Methodist Church, was a board member of the Andover Public Library, as well as serving on the Country Neighbor Board of Directors. When she was able, she enjoyed playing the organ, attending live performances, an occasional Saturday afternoon auction with Dick, and reading. Elynne loved entertaining in her home and was a gracious hostess. She most enjoyed being around people, especially those that were close to her heart, her family. Grandma very much enjoyed her grandchildren and treasured the time spent with them, whether it was beating everyone at game of Scrabble or fishing in the pond on the family farm.
