April 13, 1933 ‒ April 21, 2020
Mount Vernon, Ohio
Nancy L. Sellers, age 87, of Mount Vernon passed away on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at Mount Vernon Health and Rehabilitation.
Nancy was born to Fernand (Dutch) and Billie Lannoy on April 13, 1933. A graduate of Mount Vernon High School, Nancy spent her entire life in Mt. Vernon, and on April 4, 1954 married Joseph W. Sellers Jr., also of Mt. Vernon.
In her early years, Nancy bowled in several local bowling leagues, and worked hard at being a wife and mother. After her father’s death, Nancy helped manage their family business. She also worked at Lenki Brothers Cabinet Shop and the Cougar Den on the campus of Mount Vernon Nazarene University.
Most weekends you could find Nancy camping at Wahlers’ Campground on East Harbor in Marblehead, Ohio. Fishing was one of Nancy’s favorite pastimes, and she spent many weekends with her husband and mother fishing on Lake Erie. Upon retirement, Joe and Nancy spent countless hours with their grandchildren, and Knox Lake became a favorite fishing spot.
Nancy will be remembered for her many opinions, quick wit and dry sense of humor. One of her favorite sayings was “If you don’t like my peaches, don’t shake my tree.” Another of her favorite sayings was often delivered to an unannounced visitor: “You better ring the phone before you knock on my door.” One need only mention Nancy’s grandchildren to see her softer side. They were her pride and joy.
Nancy was a member of the Mulberry Street United Methodist Church in Mount Vernon and attended New Life Community Church in Fredericktown. She was also a long-time member of the Mount Vernon Colonial City Moose Lodge #2555.
Nancy was preceded in death by her parents and her husband. She is survived by her sister, Lynda (Joe) Bell, daughters Mary Beth (Mark Wilson) Fischer and Janet (Herman) Tice, her son Joe (Zo) Sellers, grandchildren Rachel Fischer, Leigh (Josh) Shank and Mitch Sellers, Walker and Campbell (Elaine Caw) Tice, great-granddaughter, Riley Shank, nephew Jay (Monica) Bell, and a great-niece, Molly Bell.
In keeping with Nancy’s wishes, the family will observe a private graveside service.
Memorial contributions may be made to Kindred Hospice, 112 Harcourt Road, Suite 3, Mount Vernon, OH 43050.
