Calais – Joyce (Leavitt) Wanetta Sellars, 85, passed away on December 19, 2020 at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor after a long battle with health issues. Joyce was born on September 28, 1935 in St. Stephen, NB, Canada to Ida (McCarty) and Walter Leavitt.
Joyce was a hard worker and held various jobs in Calais and St. Stephen area. Her greatest accomplishment she would say was her loving family. She watched over her grandkids and great-grandkids and was the best “Old Gram” any child could want. The stories of “Old Gram” taking care of the grandkids still bring a smile to everyone’s face.
Joyce was predeceased by her parents; three sisters, Mary Richards, Jackie Leavitt and Jean McCurdy; two brothers, Raymond and James Leavitt; and her beloved husband Donald Sellars. She is survived by her only child, Linda (Sellars) Clark and her son-in-law Mike Clark; two grandchildren whom she loved dearly, Shannon Carr and husband Mark, and Shawn Clark and wife Toni; and her four great-grandchildren that she was so very proud of, Josh Carr, Cassie Carr, Matthew Clark and Haylie Prickett. She will be missed by her loving sister, Ruth (Levitt) Johnson. She had many nieces and nephews that will fondly remember her for her laughter and spunk.
A graveside service will be held at a later date in the Calais Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations in Joyce’s memory may be made to a charity of one’s choice. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.
