Jimmie Ruth Sellman
 
Jimmie Ruth Sellman, 83, of Shelbyville, passed away Friday September 23, 2016 and was pronounced on Saturday, September 24, 2016 in Alvin, Texas after a long courageous battle with cancer.
 
Service will be 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, September 27, 2016 at Mangum Funeral Home Chapel with Bro. Jim Moss and Bro. Ronnie Wheeler officiating. Burial will follow at the Sellman Family Cemetery in Shelbyville. Visitation will be Tuesday starting at 10 am at Mangum Funeral Home Chapel.
 
She was born June 26, 1933 in Shelbyville, Shelby County, Texas to Thomas M. and Ethel Irene (Moore) Phillips. She graduated from Shelbyville High School in 1950. She was a member of Ephesus Baptist Church in Shelbyville. Jimmie's love for each and every one was truly larger than life itself and her love for God poured out through her generosity and her sweet smile and loving touch. She gave us all strength and courage to survive all of the roads through our lifes journeys to stand together and to be strong. She loved singing and humming songs and most importantly, reading the Bible, sitting on the front porch in the mornings drinking coffee and watching the animals. She also loved fishing and spending time with family and friends. She was the most loving, caring and selfless woman. So many speak of unconditional love, our mother showed it daily in her life. We remember her laughing many times when we were out as a family shrimping all the way down the pier and my dad would say the phone is ringing and mom would take off running half way up the pier before realizing there is no phone out here. She was a wonderful cook she made the best homemade biscuits of anyone. She loved the outdoors, her flowers and plants, and all her stray and wild cats. She enjoyed playing games and the company of her friends.
 
She is preceded in death by parents Tom and Ethel Phillips, husband Henry Ennis Sellman Sr. , daughter  Lois Turner, daughter Phyllis Reed ,  grandson Brent Thomas Sellman, sister Francis Eddins and brother Thomas Henry.
