Clydie Dixon (Oldham) Slagle

May 4, 1928 ~ October 21, 2020 (age 92)


On October 21, 2020 the Lord called home one of his angels to her well deserved place in Heaven.  Clydie Oldham Slagle, age 92, was born in Chatham County to the late Clyde Oldham and Martha Jones Oldham White. Surrounded by her family; Clydie’s passing came after a valiant battle with several medical issues.  Clydie was preceded in death by her husband of 32 years Siler Slagle, her stepfather Phil White, her sister Myrna Womble, her brother J.R. White, her son-in-law Al Slagle, and her first husband Carl Meacham.  She leaves behind Carlene (Luther) White of Chapel Hill, Candace Slagle of Franklin, Wayne (Amy) Meacham of Pittsboro, Gary (Cindy) Meacham of Chapel Hill; step-daughters, Kathy Slagle (Danny) Tinsley of Franklin, and Christine Slagle (Robert Martin) of Black Mountain, 13 grandchildren and 12 great. Clydie attended school in Pittsboro, NC and spent the first 50 years of her life in Chatham County raising her four children and working at the UNC Dental School.  She later met and married Siler and moved to western North Carolina where she spent the last 42 years of her life surrounded by the beauty of the Cartoogechaye community and the Slagle farm.  While here she worked with the Macon County Health Department for 12 years prior to retirement.  Clydie’s love of her life was her family and spending time with them.  She enjoyed crafting, gardening, reading, her church life, and being with nature.  She was a friend to anyone she got to know and developed lasting bonds with people in her community early in life near Chapel Hill and later in Franklin. The family would like to thank the devoted people from Hospice especially Sherry Dills, Lisa Dozier, and Elizabeth Thomason for their loving care of Clydie. A private family service and burial will be held.
