Wilma Selemon, age 95, passed away peacefully at Jameson Memorial Hospital on January 10. She was a life-long resident of New Castle and was a member of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church. Wilma graduated from New Castle High in 1939 and worked at the New Model Bakery and Shenango China.
Wilma was preceded in death by her parents, Anna and Joseph Warso; her husband of 28 years, Nicholas Selemon; three sisters, Dorothy Polenick, Eleanor Warso, Lillian Kwolek; and two brothers, Joseph and George Warso. She leaves behind a loving family of three daughters, Karen Klugman (Jeffry), Barbara Selemon (David Zuckerman), Lynn Christman (George); six grandchildren, Leah Dahl (Joel), Zoe Wilhelm (Vinnie), Seth Klugman, Nicholas Christman (Mitalee), Colin and Peter Christman; and three great-grandchildren, Jasper Dahl, Alonzo and Leroy Wilhelm.
For the past nine years Wilma was a resident of Golden Hill Nursing Home where her creative potential and social life blossomed. Writing poetry for the monthly newsletter was one of her proudest accomplishments. She was chosen to represent Golden Hill in an inter-nursing home pageant where she earned the top honor of Ms. Quality Life based on recitation of her own poems. She also earned an honorary college degree from Butler County Community College made possible by DonÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t Stop Dreamin. She was the most passionate wii bowler that Golden Hill has ever known and an enthusiastic Pirates supporter.
Keep a Life
by Wilma Selemon
When you get older and live in the privileged age,
Its just like a star leaving the stage,
Nothing is ever quite the same.
Its like the start of a new ballgame.
Especially being limited somewhat,
Something keeps saying,
Dont give up!
Thinking with a very open mind,
You are living in a privileged time.
Keeping busy with a very light work
Or a hobby of any sort.
Dont go eyeing that rocking chair.
When ill or tired, itll still be there.
As long as you keep alert,
Some gift of yours will show its worth.
The family will receive visitors at Noga Funeral Home at 10 am Saturday, January 14. A short service will be held at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Nicholas Church.
