Obituary of Victoria M. Sellers, 72


Victoria “Vickie” M. Sellers, 72, of Bellefonte, passed away on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, at home surrounded by her family. Born in Bellefonte, on January 7, 1947, she was the daughter of Edward McNichol, who survives at home in Bellefonte, and the late Norma (Hopple) McNichol.

Vickie was a graduate of Bellefonte High School. She attended beauty college in New York. She worked as a beautician for Vincent Laposata until he retired. She then bought his beauty shop and continued to run it for seven years. Most recently, she was a beautician at the Mount Nittany Residence until her retirement.

In addition to her father, Vickie is survived by two sons, Edward Ranio (Kristine), and Jason Ranio (Shannon); and three grandchildren, Shane Ranio, Tanisha Ranio, and Olivia Ranio. Also surviving are three sisters, Barbara Catherman, Kate Washburn, and Kris Matson.

Vickie loved spending time with her grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking. She was very outgoing and especially looked forward to the times she spent traveling and vacationing with “the girls,” Barb Dolan, Melissa Fulton, Glenda Zook, Bonnie Leathers, and Judy Mitchell. She will be remembered by her vibrant personality and all the precious memories that she leaves her loved ones.

A Celebration of life will be held at a later date in the Spring. Services will be announced closer to time of service in the newspaper. Arrangements are under the direction of Wetzler Funeral Service, Inc. in Bellefonte.
