In Memory of Beverly J. Sellent
Beverly Fall Sellent, age 89, passed away on September 17, 2022, at the Deerfield Gables Care Center in New Richmond, WI.
She was born the daughter of Levi and Viola (Erickson) Tolzman on November 11, 1932, near Balsam Lake, WI.
A graduate of Balsam Lake High School, she married Harry Fall and they raised a loving family of seven children. In 1970 Bev and Harry purchased the Red Rooster Ballroom east of New Richmond and provided an upbeat community center for that area. After Harry’s untimely passing, Bev married Walter Sellent. For many years they continued the Red Rooster as the default area venue for weddings, anniversaries, dining, and a point of relaxation. Bev was the smiling friendly hostess and food preparer for untold family gatherings and celebrations at the Rooster. Bev and Walt retired to Mudhen Lake near Siren, WI, and traveled extensively in their motorhome.
