Obituary for Barbara A. Sellers-Ayers

Barbara A. Ayers Sellers was born in Orange NJ at Orange Memorial Hospital on February 12,1936 to the late Curtis Ayers and Beatrice Parks. She attended the Orange Public School system up until high school and received her GED in 1970. Barbara was married to Eugene C. Harvey II 1955; they later divorced in 1970. Out of that union she had two children Eugene C. Harvey III and Donna J. Harvey. In 1978 she met her soul mate Herbert Sellers who she then married in 1986.

Barbara worked for the Orange Public School system from 1971 to 1986. In 1986 her and her husband Herbert relocated to Willingboro NJ where she continued her career working for the Willingboro School system. Barbara continued to work for the district until retiring in 2003. Barbara was Barbara, if you knew her you know what I mean. She kept it very "100" as the kids say today, she said what she wanted to and how she wanted to say it. She was very loving to her family, she was a great mother, grandmother, great grandmother and wife. She was very stern and very feisty, she was a no nonsense woman! Barbara had several hobbies which included drawing, painting and crocheting. She touched so many hearts and will be forever missed. In her last days she was surrounded by her daughter and caregiver Donna Harvey, a very close niece Teresa Colman, great niece Kendall Coleman, her granddaughter LaViv Younger, great grand children Landon Younger and Lana Younger who she called meme and her very special friend/son-in-law Curtis Sanders. After fighting dementia Barbara won her battle and earned her wings into heaven on the morning of July 20th 2020. Barbara is proceeded in death by her son Eugene C. Harvey III, husband Herbert R. Sellers, sisters Edith Ayers, Margaret Dixon and brother Paul Dixon. She leaves behind her daughter Donna Harvey, granddaughter LaViv Younger, great grands Landon and Lana Younger and "daughter's in love" Robyn Banks, Tonia Johnson, Yvonne Bynum and a host of nieces and nephews.
