Clara Edna Sellors, age 79, of Macomb, Michigan passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on September 9, 2014. Clara will be remembered for her love of family and friends as well as her kind and gentle nature.

Clara is survived by her fun loving husband of fifty-six years, Frank; her children, Linda (Timothy) McNelis, John (Connie Johnston), and Toni (Scott) Ayers; her daughter-in-law Rena Sellors; her grandchildren, Terese, Michelle, and Thomas McNelis, Sean and Jacob Sellors, Brianna, and Olivia Ayers, Anthony, Andrew and Anjalee Sellors; brother, Anthony (Barbara) Santilli; sister, sister-in-law, Lucille Marine and many extended loved ones and dear friends.

Clara was preceded in death by her parents, Pasquale and Annunziata Santilli (Fazi), sister, Helen Silveri, and her son Frank Sellors.

Clara was a very strong and determined woman who worked hard at whatever she did. Besides dedicating much of her life to raising her children and helping her parents, she worked with her husband in their catering and restaurant business. She also enjoyed working as a secretary in the administration office at Wayne State University. She retired from the Taylor School District as an Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent. Several plaques line her office wall recognizing her efforts. After retiring, she volunteered to fill in as a secretary for St. Donald's Church in Roseville. She did such a good job, the priest hired her and they became lifelong friends.

Clara had strong faith in God. Truly, she lived the commandment, "Love your neighbor as yourself." Her legacy is the example she set for each and every one of us.
