Former Almanac staffer Joan Sellman dies at 81

 

Joan Sellman, a longtime resident of Woodside and a former staffer with The Almanac, died Dec. 10 at Brighton Gardens in Santa Rosa, following an extended illness. She was 81.

Ms. Sellman was the wife of the late George Sellman, who served as superintendent of the Woodside Elementary School District for 23 years.

In the 1990s, she retired after many years in The Almanac's business office, dating back to the days when it was located in Woodside.

A memorial service for Ms. Sellman will be held in Woodside at a later date. A complete obituary will appear in a future issue of The Almanac.

I am very saddened to hear of Joan's passing away. The entire Sellman family was a huge part of my life growing up in Woodside as I am the daughter of the late Larry and Hanna Wenrick. My heart goes out to Joan's family and many, many friends. Such a kind, gentle and lovely lady.
