GREAT FALLS — “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand” (John 10:27-28).
God in His infinite wisdom and grace plucked our precious and beautiful daughter suddenly from this world of sorrows into His marvelous light and eternal rest for Jesus’s sake. We thanked God for our brave daughter as she struck out on her own at the age of 19 to move to Phoenix, Ariz., to start a new chapter in her love for life, people, and adventure; then her transition back through Great Falls to broaden her horizons. However, her plans were cut short by a loving God she trusted. Lord, thank you for our precious daughter, Daphne, and the times we spent with her. Thank you for the blessed hope of the resurrection when we will be reunited in God’s glory and eternal rest. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Daphne Nicole Sellers, 23, of Great Falls, and formerly of Phoenix, Ariz., went to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 12, 2014.
Visitation will be held Sunday, July 27, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at O’Connor Funeral Home. Graveside services will be held on Monday, July 28, at 1:30 p.m. at Highland cemetery with a celebration of life to follow beginning at 2:30 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church located at 1226 1st Ave. N. O’Connor Funeral home is handling arrangements.
Daphne was born Sept. 2, 1990, in Great Falls. She graduated from Great Falls High School in 2008 and went on to attend the University of Montana in Missoula. Over the past five years she worked in hospitality, retail clothing, restaurant, and tavern industries. She loved the Lord and was a baptized and confirmed member of Trinity Lutheran Church.
Daphne had an amazing sense of humor and was the “movie line queen.” There was not a day that went by during her last month in Great Falls that Daph and her mom didn’t exchange movie lines during casual conversation. We will miss her quick wit. What a cackle Daph was! She also loved fashion. Daphne loved to put outfits together and could do it like a pro. She wanted everyone to look and feel amazing. She also was an avid weightlifter; going to the gym almost daily.
Daphne is survived by her mother Jill O’Moore of Great Falls; father Darryl Sellers of Great Falls and Jackson, Wyo.; sister Austyn Sellers of Great Falls; brother Isaac Lee of Great Falls; grandparents Jean Sellers and Gary and Rose Shelden; niece Kyslie Jean Dear; stepfather Karl O’Moore of Kansas City, Mo.; stepbrothers Patrick O’Moore of Oregon, and Mathew O’Moore of South Carolina; and numerous loving uncles, aunts, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her beloved grandfather, Kay Sellers.
“See ya at the gun show.”
