Selma Earlene Lytle

Selma Earlene Lytle, 64, of Taylorville, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, February 17, 2023, at Sherrill’s Ford Hospice House.

She was born November 17, 1958, in Washington, D.C., to the late Earl Nathaniel Lytle and Luzella Lytle. Selma graduated in 1978 from Spinyard High School in Washington, D.C.

Selma was a member of Macedonia Baptist Church at 1451 NC Highway 90 East, Taylorsville. As a faithful member, she was very active in the Adult Sunday School class, Missionary, Baptist Training Union, Bible Study, and a member of the Usher Board that greeted everyone with a smile. Selma supported all activities including Vacation Bible School and other church outings. She loved reading the Word and would happily volunteer to read portions of the Sunday School lesson. She was one of the most faithful supporters of the Alexander Union Missionary Baptist Association and the Quarterly Conventions.

While a resident of the Alexander Group Home, Selma loved music, game shows, dancing, and shopping. She had an extended collection of movies and was very knowledgeable of the names of actors, producers, and directors of each.

Those left to cherish her memories include her Godson, Cole Flowers of Taylorsville, along with other relatives and friends. Special friends included Georgia and Willie Flowers, Loretta and Jonathan Boston, and her special caregiver, Mrs. Cathy McDaniels.

The Homegoing Service will be at 2 p.m. on Thursday, February 23, 2023, at Macedonia Baptist Church on Highway 90, Taylorsville. Pastor Ty D. Michaux is the Eulogist. The family will have visitation on Thursday from 1:00 p.m. until 1:55 p.m., prior to the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Macedonia Baptist Church, PO Box 894, Taylorsville, NC 28681.

Special thanks to the staff of Catawba Valley Assisted Living and Carolina Caring of Sherrills Ford.

Arrangements are entrusted to Kirksey Funeral Home, Morganton.

    Oh Selma I am so sorry to hear of your passing. I still remember all the trips you and I took to Frye for your treatments. Getting you a burger at Checkers, and going to the Dollar Tree. I was so grateful for the strength that God gave you through you journey, you never complained, you fought a good fight my friend. I know you are in Heaven with Jesus, singing and letting your light shine. Love you, secretary Tanya.
