Barbara Gray Sellew
Barbara Ann Gray Sellew was born April 15, 1931 and transitioned from this life naturally October 12, 2022 in Kitty Hawk. Barbara was immensely proud of her Hatteras family heritage and her grandfather’s service to the United States Life-Saving Service at Little Kinnakeet L.S Station. Barbara was raised in Norfolk and attended Larchmont, Blair and Maury High Schools and relocated to the Outer Banks in 1998 to get closer to her family roots.
Barbara was predeceased by her husband Robert “Bud” Sellew, and by two sons, William and Thomas Lawrence. She is survived by her granddaughter Katy Lawrence Simpson (Nicholas) and by her great-grandsons Jude and Reid of Maryland. Barbara is also survived by many cherished close friends and neighbors.
Barbara’s directives for cremation will be honored and there are no plans for services at this time. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to Adoration Home Health and Hospice based in Manteo, NC. Please share words of comfort with the family at www.gallopfuenralservices.com. Gallop Funeral Services Inc. was entrusted with arrangements.
