<div itemprop="description">SLOAN, Harriet (Hallie) Jennie Todd, C.M., C.D., B.N., Lt Col (Ret&rsquo;d) <br />Hallie passed away peacefully at home on Jan 21, 2016, her 99th birthday. Predeceased by her sister Clare (Ted), she will be greatly missed by her brother Bill Sloan (Joan), and her nieces and nephews. Born in Winnipeg, she grew up in Saskatoon and qualified as a nurse in Vancouver. Hallie served overseas in France with the 8th CDN General Hospital during World War II after D-Day, participated in the liberation of Belgium and the Netherlands, and chose to remain in the Army to serve during peacetime. Nursing and teaching became her passions and she rose to the rank of Matron-in-Chief of the Canadian Forces Medical Services. After retiring from the military she began a second career as a director of the Canadian Nurses Association. Her second retirement signalled the beginning of her tireless volunteer life supporting the establishment of the Perley and Rideau Veterans&rsquo; Health Centre, the Nursing Sisters&rsquo; Association of Canada, and fundraising to support education for military nurses through the Canadian Nurses Foundation. She was privileged to participate in several pilgrimages commemorating WWII Campaigns in Asia and Europe. It was her sincere wish to continue to keep alive the memory and respect for the military and civilian contributions made for Canada and freedom. In 2004 she was awarded the Order of Canada in recognition of her outstanding leadership for 50 years and advancing military nursing and patient care. She was also a Dame of the Order of St John, and last year as a D-Day veteran received the Legion of Honour. Friends may pay respects at the <br />Kelly Funeral Home, Kanata Chapel <br />580 Eagleson Rd. Kanata ON K2M 1H4 <br />613-591-6580 <br />Visitation with Family Friday, February 19, 2016 after 1 p.m. A Service in Memory of Hallie will take place in the Chapel at 3 p.m. Donations in memoriam to the Canadian Nurses Foundation, the Alzheimer Society, the Salvation Army, or the Perley and Rideau Veterans&rsquo; Health Centre would be greatly appreciated by her family.
