Though he did some ranch work (McCullum Land and Cattle Company) when he was a kid, anything mechanical was his love. He was a pioneer in the airline industry in Mont., Wyo, Colo., Idaho, S.D. and Wash. He was nicknamed “Spot” because of his ability to spot and identify airplanes in the air before anyone else.

In March of 1968 while working in Fredrick, Okla. for Dallas Airmotive, Inc. he was recognized by the governor for his contributions toward the industrial development activities of the State of Okla. and named Okla.

Sellars, Joseph
Joseph Sellars - Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain - February 13, 1879 - Death On the Trail. To a person who has never crossed the snowy range in the winter time it is next to impossible to convey an idea of the perils encountered by those who have to traverse the narrow, steep and treacherous trails in some of the mountain passes. Snow slides are of frequent occurrence especially in the early winter before the snow which falls very rapidly has become packed. A very slight jar or agitation will sometimes start an avalanche of several acres. The last victim we have heard of was Mr. Joseph Sellars, the faithful carrier who carries the mail from Silverton to Barber's ranch. The trail crosses the range at Cunningham gulch, and it is a dangerous road even in the summer time. He was coming east a week ago last Thursday and at Deep creek, a locality about one mile beyond Grassy Hill station, he was caught in a slide and carried down into a deep ravine and buried several feet under the snow. Mr. W. D. Watson, the keeper of Grassy Hill station, and several others exerted themselves to recover the body but did not succeed till the Monday following in finding him. The above particulars are gleaned from the Del Norte Prospector, and yesterday we learned from C. L. Weinberg that two other citizens of Silverton perished at the same time. One of them is named Morrison and the other Fred Gardner, a young lawyer formerly of Pueblo, and well known to many of our citizens. The mail had not been recovered at last accounts.

Selleck, W. E. (Mrs.)
Mrs. W. E. Selleck - Pueblo Chieftain - May 9, 1904 - Wife Killed and Husband Injured - Mrs. W. E. Selleck Meets With Fatal Accident on Fifteenth Wedding Anniversary - On the eve of her fifteenth wedding anniversary and but two days before her forty-third birthday, while driving with her husband Saturday evening about 7:30 o'clock, Mrs. W. E. Selleck was thrown from a buggy sustaining injuries from the effect of which she died about an hour later without regaining consciousness. Mr. Selleck was also seriously injured and is at his home on Dalton Heights in a precarious condition, not yet realizing that his wife is dead. Saturday forenoon Mr. Selleck purchased a new horse, and in the evening suggested to his wife that they take an evening ride to the city. She readily consented, and as soon as dinner was over they started. The horse was frisky when they started out, but not dangerously so, and no fear was entertained by either. Chatting pleasantly they drove until they reached the long hill leading to Bessemer. Here they decided to go through Bessemer, and turning the horse started up the hill. They had not gone far, however, when one of the shafts on the buggy broke. The horse became frightened and started to run. Mr. Selleck was doing everything in his power to bring the horse under control when the woman becoming excited reached over and grabbing one of the reins pulled the horse head around. The buggy was cramped and Mrs. Selleck was thrown violently to the ground. Hitting on the left side of her head, she sustained a fracture at the bass of the skull which rendered her unconscious. It was later discovered that three ribs on the left side were broken, and the left shoulder blade was broken besides several severe bruises. Mr. Selleck was not thrown from the buggy, and the horse plunged ahead, righted the buggy. Dashing up the hill he ran for about 100 yards. Mr. Selleck wildly endeavoring to get him under control. Finally plunging down an embankment, he ran into a fence throwing the occupant of the buggy several feet. He was rendered unconscious and suffered severe bruises though it is not know whether he was injured internally or not. Both the victims were picked up and taken to their home in an ambulance. Mrs. Selleck never regained conscious ness and before the physician who was immediately summoned arrived she had breathed her last. Owing to the precarious condition of her husband he has not yet been told of his wife's death. It is though, however that he will recover. Yesterday was the fifteenth anniversary of the marriage of the two victims of the runaway and today Mrs. Selleck would have been 43 years of age. She is survived by her husband and three children, all living at home. The funeral will be held from the residence tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Mrs. Selleck was a member of Carnation Circle, Woman of Woodcraft, who will have charge of the services. Interment will be made in Riverview cemetery.

Senum, Olive G.
Olive G. Senum - Pueblo Chieftain - June 28, 2002 - Olive G. Senum, longtime Pueblo resident, passed away on Saturday, June 22, 2002. She was born Oct. 2, 1919, in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada. Olive graduated in 1956 from the University of Colorado with a bachelor's degree in nursing. She practiced as a Registered Nurse in a multitude of health care settings, including hospitals, public health, and finally as a nursing instructor at SCSC, retiring in 1983. She is preceded in death by her loving parents, Tom and Cora Senum. Although she was a naturalized citizen, her pride as an American and especially a Pueblo resident were paramount in her life. Her cats were constant and precious companions. She was an active member of the Tabor Lutheran Church and enjoyed Bible study group on Wednesday and the Project Group on Thursday. In addition, she was a volunteer at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. She is survived by her beloved friends, Miriam and Tom Lindahl, their children and Suzie and John Fox. She leaves behind Canadian and American relatives and wonderful Pueblo friends, particularly those in her church. Olive will be missed because the total of her life was spent practicing the "gentle art of caring" to quote the first modern nurse, Florence Nightingale. Viewing at 3 p.m. Saturday, followed by funeral service at 4 p.m. at Tabor Lutheran. Those who wish may send contributions to the Tabor Lutheran Church Memorial Fund, or the Pueblo County Humane Society through the funeral home.
