Carlene S. (Gentry) Segers, age 76 of Seymour, TN, formerly of Akron, OH, went home to be with the Lord on June 3, 2013. Carlene was a loving wife of 58 years to her beloved husband, Dwaine Segers; a proud mother of four children, Donald Segers (Bonnie), Janice Warne (Rorke), Joyce Segers (Sandra Booth), and Jane Miller; and a proud grandmother of seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, by whom she is survived. She was born and raised in Copley, OH, and graduated from Copley High School. She held several key secretarial positions for more than 30 years. She attended Providence Missionary Baptist Church in Seymour, TN, and was a member of First Baptist Church in Akron, OH, most of her adult life. Carlene deeply loved her church families and held them dear to her heart. She loved to read the Bible, cook, garden, vacation with family, and decorate her home at Christmas. She was an avid Cleveland professional sports fan and also loved the Lady Vols. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her. She is also survived by her sister, Reba Gray (Ernie), and brother, Larry Gentry (Rose Thornton). She was preceded in death by her parents, Curtis and Jane Gentry; her sister, Athelia Greer (David); her granddaughter, Kaylynn Flagg; and her daughter-in-law, Bonnie Segers. A memorial service for family and friends will be held at PMBC to celebrate her life. Details will be announced at the church at a later time. In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that donations be made in her name and in memory of Bonnie Segers to the Laura Crandall Brown Ovarian Cancer Foundation, P.O.
