Selestine Everetta Allen Jeter, 53, formerly of King George, Virginia, went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, in Dumfries, Virginia.
She was born November 3, 1959, in King George County VA, to the Late Bernard D. Allen and Flossie C. Allen.
Selestine accepted Christ as her personal savior and joined Salem Baptist Church at an early age.
She received her education in the King George County public school system. After reaching adulthood, she left King George and moved to Amelia, VA where she resided for several years and then later moved to Washington, DC. She returned to her hometown to reside in 2006.
Selestine received her nursing certificate and was employed as a Nurse’s Aide taking care of the elderly in nursing homes for many years. She served as an usher and a missionary and was an active member of the Women of Salem’s Decorating Committee until she became too ill to perform her duties.
Selestine had a few favorite past times. She loved to shop for shoes. DSW was her favorite place to go. She also loved watching the golden girls on television and calling up her niece discussing the latest episodes. Selestine had a serious passion for food! She loved eating crabs during the summer with her sisters, and loved to participate in different functions at church and spending time with her children and grandchildren.
She leaves to cherish her memory, two loving sons, Antoine Jeter (Abby) of Dumfries, and Jason Jeter (Sheena) of Riverdale, MD; seven grandchildren, Rochelle, Caitlin, MacKenzie, Bryce, Tatum, Jason Jr, and Jamere; five dear sisters, Debra Allen, of Washington, DC, Micki Allen, Peggy Allen, Pamela Allen and Carrie Rich, all of King George; two brothers, Howard Allen, of Rappahannock Academy and Earl Allen of Dillwyn, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
