Betty Sue Sellers

October 26, 1928 — March 7, 2024

Southaven, MS

Betty Sue Sellers, born Betty Sue Rainwater on a crisp October day in Lawrence County, Arkansas in 1928, has left behind a legacy of love and warmth that will forever resonate in the hearts of those who knew her. On March 7, 2024, in Olive Branch, Mississippi, the world lost a remarkable woman whose kindness and unwavering love touched the lives of all fortunate enough to have crossed paths with her.

Throughout her life, Betty dedicated herself to caring for others with grace and compassion. As an administrative clerk for the State of Arkansas and later as a receptionist for Dr. William Pope, DDS in Memphis, she brought joy to those around her with her infectious smile and genuine concern for everyone she encountered.

Betty's heart knew no bounds when it came to her family. She found immense joy in simple moments like birthdays and holidays, where she would shower her loved ones with warmth and affection. A devoted mother to her three children - Stanley Sellers (Pattie), Richard Sellers (Marifran), and Susie McIntyre (Allan) - Betty took pride in their accomplishments and cherished every moment spent together.

In addition to her children, Betty leaves behind a rich tapestry of descendants who were the light of her life. Her grandchildren Edith M. Yriart (Neil) and John Sellers (Jaime), as well as her great-grandchildren Jacob Sellers, Jordan Sellers, and Jeanie Sellers, will always carry forward the love and values she instilled in them.

Betty was not only a matriarch to her immediate family but also a beloved daughter and sister. She is preceded in death by her husband of 64 years Barney Sellers, parents John Addison and Lozia (Wright) Rainwater, along with her sister Bertie Joe Burtnett.

Betty found solace in various hobbies and interests that brought color to her days. An avid bridge player who enjoyed weekly games with cherished friends for over 50 years, she also found peace as an active member of the Southaven First Methodist Church. Whether trying her luck at penny slots or penny poker at the casino or crafting beautiful ceramics, Betty's zest for life shone through in everything she did.

To know Betty was to be touched by an angel on earth - a woman whose kindness knew no limits and whose love encompassed all who knew her. She will be remembered not only for the rum balls she lovingly made or the Easter baskets she sent without fail but for the enduring impact she had on the lives lucky enough to have been graced by hers.

As we bid farewell to an extraordinary soul who brightened our lives with love and laughter, let us carry forward Betty Sue Sellers' spirit of kindness and compassion into our own interactions - thus keeping alive the memory of a truly remarkable woman whose light will continue to shine brightly in our hearts forevermore.
