Marie was born on January 26, 1946, the daughter of the late Howard Caldwell Simpson and Virginia Ethel Aderholt Simpson. Marie understood the importance of first impressions, always ensuring she looked her best. She was known for never leaving the house without having her hair, makeup and accessories in place. A wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, her family was her world. She was so incredibly proud of all her grandchildren and loved spending time with them. Marie loved to cook and the family always knew there would be too much food at any holiday or celebration. Her presence will be missed by many, but continue to live on in all that loved her. 

Those left to cherish Marie’s memory include her loving husband, Charles Davis Sell; her daughter, Dawn Deese (Randy); her daughter, Kim Benton (Greg); her son, Adam Sell; her four grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
