Cordelia was born in Shawnee on May 8, 2003, to Terry Lee Sloan and Carrie Sue (Furgerson) Sloan. She was a member of the National Honor Society at McGregor High School, where she was a junior. Cordelia was Miss Teen McGregor 2019, a cheerleader, a member of the Interact Club, PALs, FCA, First Baptist Church, UIL, Drama Club, and Girl Scouts. She excelled in gymnastics, powerlifting, played a percussion instrument in band, played soccer and volleyball, and was a baseball, softball, volleyball, and basketball manager, a nursery worker, and a gymnastics teacher. It’s easy to see that Cordelia was full of spirit and life. She loved making horrible Tik Tocs, “YOLO”, taking pictures, and being embarrassed by her brother and sisters. Cordelia was kind, loving, giving and will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her.
