Sellers, Nancy A.

Nancy A. Sellers (nee Page), loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 21, 2021.

Sellers; children Christy (Jason Harston), Richard (Lisa Miller); grandchildren Page (Matthew Haskell), Rachel (Jason Geminert), and Alexander; brother Roger Page (Karen).

Nancy grew up in Rocky River and earned a Bachelor of Education from Kent State University, where she met and married her beloved husband.  When Martin began active-duty service in the U.S. Army they were stationed together in Bremerhaven, Germany where they took advantage of many opportunities to travel throughout Europe.  Nancy was a faithful and supportive wife to Martin when he served an overseas tour of duty in Vietnam, and so grateful when they were finally reunited.

She was a passionate educator and beloved by her many sixth-grade students at St. Anthony of Padua School; her particular interest in Roman, Greek, and Egyptian history was evident in her memorable lessons, and creative projects.  An avid and skilled bridge player, Nancy was a sought-after partner and loved hosting her bridge group.  She was known for her bright wit, beautiful smile, joyful laugh, and her legendary baking skills; her friends and family were grateful recipients of her famous cheesecake and brownies.  As a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for over four decades, she served as a dedicated Sunday School and Primary teacher for many of those years.

A memorial service and celebration of her life will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 25000 Westwood Rd, Westlake, on Monday, November 29, 2021, from 7:00-8:00 p.m., with refreshments to follow.  Livestream of the memorial service will be available via Zoom.
