Obituary for Joan Jean Selleck

Joan Jean Selleck

Age 88 of Owosso passed away Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at Hospice House of Shiawassee County.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11am Saturday December 15, 2018 at St. Paul Catholic Church with Father Dieudonne Ntakarutimana officiating. The family will receive friends at Nelson-House Funeral Home on Friday December 14 from 4pm to 8pm with a rosary being prayed at 7pm.

Joan was born May 23, 1930 in Saint Johns, the daughter of Charles and Alberta (Turner) Ellerbrock.

She graduated from Owosso High School Class of 1948 and worked for Consumers Power until her marriage to Richard Selleck in Owosso on August 25, 1951; he predeceased her on January 25, 2014.

Joan was a member of St. Paul Catholic Church and also a volunteer for the Red Cross. She worked alongside her husband, Dick supporting him in the day to day operations of the Richard Selleck and Sons Agency.

A homemaker, in the true sense of the word. Always a welcome and a card game for anyone who stopped over. Her Sunday dinners could attract a crowd from 8-28 and like the parable of the loaves and the fishes, there was always enough for everyone, whoever turned up.
Joan was a golfer in the summer and a bowler in the winter and then worked out in the early morning exercise group at the YMCA.
Joan never stopped participating in life.

Above her fireplace is a sign “Who are all these kids and why do they keep calling me Mom?”  Her family was proud to call her Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma and Aunt.

Joan is survived by her daughters Kristine (Richard) Smith and Mary Selleck; sons Jim (Debbie) Selleck, Pat (Shelly) Selleck, Mike Selleck, John Selleck, Mark (Teresa) Selleck, Bob Selleck (Denise,)and David Selleck (Shawn); grandchildren Jason (Beth), Michael (Jen), Faith Shick (Gram), Steve, Jonathan, Sara, Lluvia (Oscar), Kaila McCarthy (Ivan), Jay, Billy, Rosie, Jenessa, Casel and Malan; great-grandchildren Collin, Cryselin, Meara Rose, Isabella, Oscar, Jude, Aedan, Bronson, Reagan and Tori Joan; and many other loving nieces, nephews and friends.

She was predeceased by her husband and her parents.

Memorial contributions are suggested to St. Paul Athletics and Hospice House of Shiawassee County.
