Selma was a most kind and caring nurse. No matter how busy and all the turmoil that was going on the ICU she was always smiling. A good neighbor and a good friend. She will be missed by many remembered by all who knew her. May God comfort all her faithful family. Jean Adkins

I had the privilege of working with Selma for 20+ years as president of Annie Penn. Selma was one of the most compassionate, caring and competent nurses I ever knew. She was so reassuring and so focused on providing excellent patient care. She was very respected by her peers, colleagues, patients and families. She was a tremendous credit to the nursing profession and I will miss her greatly. She was one of a kind. Rest in peace Selma.

Even though our paths in adult life took us to different locations, i have never forgotten her. She is in my heart and now by the side of another dear classmate Karen Hale Sineath. I am very sorry for you.

I taught Selma in the 11th Grade. She has been a good friend since then and was a lovely, caring person to know. Selma was an amazingly talented nurse. She made outstanding contributions in her career and in her personal life. My sympathy to her family....

So sorry for your loss, Selma was such a sweetheart, and a real angel of mercy to those under her care in the ICU at the Annie Penn Hospital. I grew up in Reidsville, my mom was a nurse at Annie Penn, as was another dearly departed friend worked side by side with Selma for years. Heaven is an even sweeter place now with Selma home with Jesus. She was so kind. Sincerely, John Butler

Selma was a dear friend of mine and my family. She was one of the sweetest and kindest friends that I have ever had. She always was trying to help out everyone. We shared a common interest in friends, plants and pets. She will be a missing part of my life, but I know that she will be in a better place. I know God has a place for her in heaven.

Sorry to hear of Selma's Passing. I worked with Selma at Annie Penn Hospital for 25+ years and saw what a kind and dedicated to her patients as well as coworkers. She was always happy to help in any way she could and always had a smile for you no matter the kind of day she was having. Annie Penn lost a most valued employee when she left us. Knowing Selma I know she is probably up in Heaven looking down and smiling on us all because she is in a good place and no longer suffering. Will miss seeing her.
Dawn and family, remembering you in prayer during this sad time. God Bless...
SO SORRY TO HEAR THIS. I WORKED WITH SELMA AT ANNIE PENN FOR YEARS. SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING.

Selma and I were in the same graduating class at Morehead High School, and I met her as a child at the bottom of Grove Street when the sisters visited Mrs. Harp with my friend Diane. Even then she was just the sweetest girl, and the whole family was so nice. I was not aware that she had been ill and am saddened to hear of her passing. Selma's smile and kindness to everyone will be missed, and my regards to her family.
