Selma Karen Williams was born to Denver Wilson Williams and Mabel Mae Boyd Williams on August 6, 1944. She was born at home in Mt. Joy, Scioto County, Ohio. She married her childhood sweetheart, David Tolliver, on the Westside of Portsmouth, near Lucasville, Ohio. They spent most of their married life living in Wilmington, Clinton County, Ohio. Together they raised two sons, Brian and Bruce Tolliver.
Aunt Selma had a feisty temper and a fearless personality, she loved to travel, tell jokes, and laugh. She and David visited most of the fifty states by van, camper or motorcycle. She loved antiques of all kinds and country music. During the 1970s she was Billy "Crash" Craddock's biggest fan. Geneaology was one of her hobbies. She adored her grandchildren and her great nieces and nephews.
After they retired, Aunt Selma and Uncle Dave built a house on the Tolliver family homestead, near where they grew up. Aunt Selma became very ill soon after. She lived out her last days in a light-filled house in the middle of a peaceful field on the border of Pike and Scioto Counties in southeastern Ohio. Uncle Dave, her life-long companion, was with her when she passed away. She was an organ donor and her passing saved or improved the lives of many other folks.
Her funeral was held on March 19, 2004, at 11:00 a.m. at the Botkin Funeral Home in Otway, Ohio. Rev. Kelly McInerney and Rev. Ryan Bevins officiated. A local bluegrass musician played the acoustic guitar at her service.
Aunt Selma was laid to rest in a plot on the family property next to her home, near where she was born and grew up in Mount Joy, Ohio.
