June Elizabeth Sellers

February 6, 1932 — May 14, 2017

June Elizabeth Sellers, age 85, passed away peacefully at home on May 14, 2017 in Astoria, Oregon. She was born on February 6, 1932 in Afton, Tennessee to Joseph F. and Nancy Grace Childress, the youngest of seven children. She was raised in West Virginia until the age of 12, and then her family moved west to Oregon. She graduated from high school in Vernonia, Oregon and then trained as a nurse at Good Samaritan in Portland, Oregon. She married Bobby Elton Sellers on August 5, 1950. June devoted her life to taking care of people, whether it was her family or as a caregiver to the elderly and ill. She attended Grace Community Bible Church in Astoria. June will be remembered for her quiet strength and selfless love for her family. Her generous, sweet, and kind nature made everyone feel special. She could make you laugh with her quick wit and sense of humor. She loved cooking and telling stories, so you never left her home without a full stomach and a full heart. She is survived by her three children, daughter and son-in-law Barbara and Barry Craft of Long Beach, son John Sellers of Warrenton, Oregon, and son and daughter-in-law Joseph and Teresita Sellers of Knappa, Oregon; five grandchildren, Eric and his wife Stefanie, Amy, Sarah, Hillary, and Shawn; six great grandchildren, Tristan, Lucas, Aiden, Elise, Kaelyse, and Shamus. She is also survived by an uncle, Harry Childress of West Virginia and children, sister-in-law, Clarice Sellers of Orlando, Florida, and numerous nieces and nephews who she loved dearly. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bobby, of 60 years. A memorial service will be held at 1 pm on Saturday, May 27, 2017, at Grace Community Baptist Church, 1195 Irving Avenue in Astoria, Oregon. A reception will follow. Her internment will be with her husband at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon. The family would like to extend their gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Croos and family for providing attentive care and comfort over the past few years. Remembrances may be made to Lower Columbia Hospice Astoria.
