I first met Connie about five years ago when she graciously agreed to share her memories of the Gold Coast. We talked several times and toured the area where she and her husband's family lived during the heyday of the Gold Coast. She introduced me to Aunt Opal Barnhill who, along with Connie, told me many stories of the Seaney family and others who lived there. Connie was always so kind and good natured and had a wonderful memory of events and people. I wish I could have heard her play the dulcimer. My sympathy to her sons and family. Tom Henderson.

Bobby & all the Seaney family,
Sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. May God bless you during this time of grief. I want to say I met her one time at the base.

My first memory of Connie was in the fellowship hall of Pearson Baptist on a Sunday morning during Sunday School Assembly. She was sitting on the front row and was bouncing 6 mo. old Bobby on her lap. She had long, thick beautiful blonde hair and was such a lovely Mother. Our families enjoyed a close friendship during our years at Pearson sharing in teaching Sunday School and working with Buddy and Ted in Cub Scouts.
Over the years she has proven to be a faithful and loving friend. My heart goes out to her precious family as you have truly honored her in every way. Dear Connie, I will miss you dearly. Love, Martha

Good evening. My deepest condolences go out to the Seaney family. I can tell she really appreciated good music. Today many lack appreciation for a good tune. Mrs. Seaney is to be commended for her appreciation for spiritual things. There is not doubt that her faith instilled in her great love, appreciation, and care for family, friends and others in her community. May the Seaney family take comfort in the words found in John 5:28:  “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”.

I have several special memories of this special lady..I especially loved being with her on the coast at the wedding of Bobby and Belinda...She has such an infectious smile and such a sweet spirit..The greatest memory I will cherish was on her birthday when she was surprised with a MOTORCYCLE ride to her party and I was there to cover it for the Clarion Ledger...She was scared to death but was such a trooper when she got on the back of the bike..!!

I have many memories of Ms. Connie from church, but the most personal was when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. She told me her story and was so encouraging. She even told me funny stories about her prosthetic and one of her sons. It felt so good to laugh about it. I don't know how I would have gotten through without women like her. I will miss her.
