Nancy Victoria Sells
(December 31, 1923 - August 8, 2011)
Maybeury- Nancy Victoria Sells The world lost a part of its heart on August 8, 2011, our mother and friend, Nancy Victoria Sells. She lost her battle with this life and has gone on to her heavenly home to be with her Lord and her family that has gone on before her. She was a woman whose kindred spirit and gentle ways left a mark in many people’s lives. She will be truly missed, but fondly remembered by those who knew her. Her life was an open book, which was enjoyed to the fullest and shared by all. Her family was her life. Such a selfless woman, whom always had such a sweet smile and a warm hug for anyone she came in contact with. Gardening was one of her passions. Many people remarked about her love for flowers. Her gardens were immaculate to say the least. She loved all seasons. She always had kind words for everyone. She loved to be surrounded by her family and dear friends, whom were many. Momma, you will always be alive in our hearts, but, we know that you have gone on to a much better place and that you are finally at peace. You always said that you felt so richly blessed to have your family, but, what you didn’t know was that “WE” were the ones that were blessed to have been born unto you. We love you momma. I hope you dance…May you rest in heavenly peace …Heaven just got another Angel.
