Lowell Sellin was born in St. Paul, MN on 2-5-1930 to Paul and Minnie (Dallman) Sellin of Ortonville and went to meet the Lord on 5-15-2015.

Survived by his wife Lenore (Motzko), his daughters Randa (Stephen) Hahn of Eden Prairie, Sandra (John) Smelter of Foley, Sara (Garrett) Haas of Albertville, eight grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and four step children. His loving sister Vadnae (Ronald) Kottke of Big Stone City and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends will all miss him.

Lowell grew up farming and graduated from the U of M School of Agriculture in St. Paul, then continued to farm for most of his life. As a boy he and his brother raised and showed cattle for 4-H projects. Lowell and his brother Jim often took their sister Vadnae roller skating. He also worked in the trucking and concrete industries. He worked for the creamery in Buffalo, making butter and received the nickname “ Ole “ which stayed with him. He enjoyed running an antique store and coffee shop during retirement. He loved music, played the Hawaiian guitar and went square dancing in his youth. His family was the Light of his Life.

Lowell was a kind and gentle man that was loved by many and will be greatly missed.

    Dear Sellin Family, especially Randa, Sandy, and Sara and their mom Helen. We are in Arizona at Tracy and Bob’s, staying with Ben, while they are out of the country. We have such pleasant memories of Lowell, and it was hard watching him deteriorate over the past few years. We saw him about a month ago, and realized he couldn’t keep going on much longer. Dave and Lowell had many good talks on their way to work at Spancrete, years ago. Sorry we can’t be there to give our support and sympathy. God’s Blessings to all of you, Lowell is in his heavenly home at last.
