Carol Patricia (Heers) Sislane, age 86, passed peacefully at the home of her son, Scott, and his wife Margaret, in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire on November 13, 2021, she was surrounded by loving family.
Carol was born in Boston, Massachusetts on May 28, 1935. She grew up in Natick, MA and graduated from Natick High school. She was predeceased by her father Percy Cedric Heers and her mother Svea Youngquist Heers, both of Natick, MA. She is survived by her younger brother Richard G. Heers, of Butte, MT.
While studying Art and Design at the University of New Hampshire, Carol met L. Ronald Sislane at a UNH-Boston University social. They married in 1956 and later they had a family of four daughters and a son.
Carol enjoyed the outdoors, traveling and meeting new people wherever she went, especially in Southport and Bar Harbor. She loved animals and was always willing to rescue and nurture injured wildlife. She had a particular interest in genealogy and took great pride in her German and Swedish heritage. Carol had an uncanny ability to recall life stories and details over several generations. She was very creative, yet few knew she was a talented artist or that she played piano. Carol could make anyone she met feel special and within minutes feel like she’s known them a lifetime. The sacrifices she made throughout her life told of her unconditional love for her family. We will remember her for her for these reasons and many more.
She was a member of the North Fryeburg Community Chapel and a Deaconess and longtime member of the Sweden Community Church.
Carol is survived by husband, L. Ronald Sislane of Sweden, ME; Linda (Sislane) Seidman and Robert Seidman of Poughquag, NY; Virginia Sislane of Troy, ME; Julie (Sislane) Atherton and Dennis Atherton of Standish ME; Penny (Sislane) Williams and Patrick Williams of Lovell, Maine; Scott and Margaret Sislane of Wolfeboro, NH; grandchildren: Alec Seidman, Wallkill, NY, Mitchell Seidman, Poughquag, NY; Heather Dyer Ruel and Shawn Ruel, Standish, ME; Jessica Lee Dyer, South Portland, ME; Justin Williams, Auburn, ME; Anna Williams, Portland, ME; Sara Williams, Lovell, ME; Michael Sislane, Laconia, NH; Katherine Sislane, Dover, NH; Abigail Sislane of Keene, NH; great grandchildren: Winn Ruel, Heisey Ruel, ME; Jillian Sislane, Max Sislane, NH.
