Play Tribute Movie

Born in Birmingham, AL, Joanne was the second child of six for Melvin Murdock Bewley and Edna Culverhouse Bewley. She attended Holman Elementary School and then Woodlawn High School where she graduated. She was a member of Avondale Presbyterian Church and later Crestway Baptist Church. Joanne spent a number of years in administrative work with BCBS and the Birmingham Police Department. She retired when she married Manley Seale Sr. and had two children (Manley Jr. and Leanne). After her children were grown, Joanne enjoyed child care in her home, mostly family members. She is remembered for her great love of children and her desire for them to know Jesus. She worked for many years as part-time staff with CEF (Child Evangelism Fellowship) as well as volunteering with the Children’s Church at Crestway Baptist Church for many years. Though she is gone, she is not forgotten by her 2 children, 3 grandchildren, 1 great grandchild, her sisters, nieces and nephews and close friends. The impact she made on all is greater than the summary of her life. Selflessness, humility, generosity are just a few words to explain the qualities that allow her memory to live on. A public visitation will be held on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 from 1:00PM-2:00PM in the chapel of John Ridout's Elmwood Chapel located at 800 Dennison Ave. SW Birmingham, AL. 35211 with a Celebration of Life Service to follow at 2:00PM. Burial will follow immediately in Elmwood Cemetery. Pastor Skip Speed officiating. John Ridout's Elmwood Chapel directing.
