Martha "Ruth" Sellers

Martha Ruth Jackson Sellers of Marion, passed away Thursday, March 17, 2022 at her residence.

Ruth was born in Martinsville, Va. on May 23, 1930 to the late Albert Wade Jackson and the late Martha Flack Jackson. Ruth was employed in the furniture and textile industry for many years as well as being employed within hospitality at the historic Hotel James in Marion. She spent the remainder of her years searching for the perfect job that she described as "tasting pies and cakes." She was a member of Moore's Grove Baptist Church in Mill Springs, NC and later transferred her membership to Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist in Marion, NC. Ruth was a gifted seamstress. She was well known for the beautifully tailored clothing that she made for her two girls, friends and family. On a sunny day, you would find her working in her front yard tending to her flowers. She loved people and her home was a hub for entertaining friends and family.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, James M Sellers who passed away in 1962; a daughter, Rose Marie Sellers; a grandson, Josh Pritchard and siblings, John Junius, Willie Clayton, Mallory, Mac Roy, Wade Hampton, Sara Ann, Lucy Mae and Norma Jean.

Those left to cherish her memory are a daughter, Dr. Janice Macopson and her husband Elmer Sr. of Marion; four grandchildren, Elmer Jr., April, Travis and Brandy; nine great grandchildren and five great great grandchildren.

The funeral will be held in the Chapel of Beam Funeral Service on Wednesday, March 23, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. The family will receive friends from 12:00 p.m. until 1:00 p.m. prior to the service at the funeral home. Interment will follow at McDowell Memorial Park.

Memorial contributions may be made to Amorem Hospice, 1721 Enon Rd., Valdese, NC 28690.

Janice and family,
I am saddened to hear of your loss. Your mother was such a beautiful and kind lady. When I was growing up with granddaddy Jonas, I enjoyed my visits to your house. I pray for your strength and peace.
