Upon her retirement, she was active as a volunteer for Macon Hospital. She was a longtime member of Williamson Road(Southside) Church of Christ in Macon, Georgia, Flanders Road Church of Christ in Toledo, Ohio, and was supported in her later years by her church family from Thomaston Road Church of Christ in Macon, Georgia. Ms. Sellers lived with her daughter's family in Sylvania, Ohio, until 2014, at which time she returned to Macon. The family thanks Bolingreen Health and Rehabilitation Center, and Hospice of Central Georgia for their thoughtful care.
