Elizabeth Bush Sellers

Elizabeth Bush Sellers, 100, died peacefully Sunday, October 24, 2021 after a brief hospitalization in Macon.
Born in Barnesville to Jackson and Evelyn Bush, she was well loved in the community throughout her life and was, in turn, devoted to it – her father having been integral in the establishment of Lamar County in the year before her birth.
Mrs. Sellers was active in the Barnesville-Lamar County Library and the First United Methodist Church, and later in life she followed in the footsteps of her mother by contributing a regular column, Flashback,” to the editorial pages of The Herald Gazette.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Edgar.
She is survived by her two sons, David (Pam) and Walter (Jerri), both of North Carolina; four grandchildren: Jack (Sarah), Ben, Matthew and Ryann Elizabeth, all of North Carolina; one great-grandchild, Evie; a sister, Jacolyn, of Columbia, SC; and several nieces and nephews; as well as her Barnesville family, who – whether related by blood or not – played an integral role in her day-to-day livelihood, offering her the joie de vivre that helped her reach her 100th birthday.
Per her wishes, the family will hold a small, private graveside service at Greenwood Cemetery at a later date. Details about a public celebration of life will be forthcoming. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the First United Methodist Church or the Barnesville-Lamar County Library.
Williams-Westbury Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
