Selma worked at various places and retired from Meals on Wheels in Hazen in 1999 as a site manager. She was a previous member of the Hazen Lions and Eagles Clubs.

Selma enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren and going to their activities. She loved that her great grandchildren gave her the name “GREAT”. Selma loved traveling with Jerry, especially the many cruises they went on and their trip to Africa. Their winters in Arizona and playing weekly bocce games with their friends were a highlight of their special time together. Selma also enjoyed camping, planting flowers, and getting together with her friends to play games.
