Selena worked at Walker Poultry House in Jamestown, Stewart Warner in Lebanon and retired from Terra Products in Crawfordsville.

Her hobbies included spending many hours sewing and quilting beautiful quilts for herself, her family and many friends as well as selling many of her items. She had been a member of the Moose Lodge and Elks Lodge in Crawfordsville. She enjoyed listening to country music and playing her many vinyl albums at Christmas time which she loved.
