EDDYVILLE, Ky. (WPSD Local 6) – The mayor of Eddyville died unexpectedly in Lexington.

According to WPSD Local 6, Mayor Nancy Slaton died while attending a conference in town.  The judge-executive of Lyon County released a statement: 

“Lyon County is saddened today by the passing of Eddyville Mayor Nancy Slaton.  Mayor Slaton has served the citizens of Eddyville since 2011 as mayor. But she served a greater purpose beyond her elected office. Mayor Slaton was active in her church and participated weekly in a women’s prison ministry sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ to those incarcerated in our state prison. We ask for prayers for her family and friends as they deal with this shocking news.  Our comfort lies in knowing she knew Jesus as her personal savior, and she still lives in His protection now. Mayor Slaton will be missed greatly.”

Eddyville City Hall is open and as of now, the City Council is scheduled to meet Monday.
