Martha Eliot Sloane
FALLS VILLAGE — Martha Eliot Sloane, 75, of Falls Village, died unexpectedly on Aug. 23, 2021, at the Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie. She was the loving wife of Randolph Hogan.
Born on July 8, 1946, in Princeton, N.J., she was the daughter of William Milligan Sloane and Martha Chamberlin Sloane.
Martha spent her professional career in New York, the city she loved. She possessed a tireless work ethic and had held executive positions with the firms Baker & Taylor and R.R. Bowker & Company.
A natural ability to work with and listen to people led her to launch Martha Sloane Consultants, a successful executive recruitment firm, focused on publishing and finance. She loved her firm and her clients.
Martha was resilient, energetic, generous, and sweet to the bone. Helping people in all situations and walks of life came naturally. Everyone remembers her infectious laugh. She loved to dance and was a devoted doo wop music fan. When she wasn’t tending to family or her French Bulldogs, she could be found in her garden.
After New York City, Martha lived in Upper Grandview, N.Y., for many years before retiring to Falls Village in Amesville 10 years ago. She is remembered as a beloved member of this community and was active in several organizations.
In addition to her husband, Randy Hogan, Martha is survived by her sister, Isabel and her husband, Drew; her two brothers, Alex and Ward, and their wives, Jeanne and Michelle; her niece, Jessica Robbins and her husband, Dan; and her nephew, Nick. Jessica and Nick were the apple of her eye.
Besides her parents, Martha was predeceased by her brother, Bill.
The family plans to celebrate her life later in the year. Memorial contributions may be made to the Little Guild Animal Shelter, 285 Sharon-Goshen Turnpike, West Cornwall, CT 07796, www.littleguild.org.
The Kenny Funeral Home is taking care of arrangements.
