Dear Sweet Betty,
To say you will be missed is not adequate, you will be missed immensely. Your children, grandchildren, your friends, Sherry who has been taking care of your needs during the week for you, for several years. Let's not forget Little Billy, his world changed last Friday evening. He loved you and I understand he was right there by your side till you were taken from your home. A home that you were proud of, and welcomed many into. In September 2006, my Mother and I moved across the street from you and Bill and I felt welcomed to the neighborhood. You all were always ready to talk and helpful when needed. I know after he passed in 2014, you missed him greatly but continued to move forward living your life without him and and starting a new normal. I know that wasn't easy because I too walked that path for over 23 years as of now. But you kept on, keeping on. The way you lived and continued to be sure of what you wanted reminds me of a song. You were determined despite advice to live as independent as possible, even insisting to being at your home every night at home, unless your daughters insisted otherwise because of bad weather or sickness. That song by Frank Sinatra "My Way" reminds me of your life. The last stanza closes with "Let the records show I took all the blows and did it my way. Yes, Betty, you will be missed, I will miss that wonderful, caring, self of yours, the yummy vegetable soup you would call me to come get. Sixteen years of friendship with you was just not enough but we can't question God. The important thing is you are free from pain, reunited with Bill, and your many loved ones. "You fought the great race, and have reached your goal and that means those of us left to miss you, need to continued that race. I have your nice vehicle and that will be a constant reminder of our friendship that grew over these 16 years. PS.. look for my hubby, Tom, I am sure he is there. Love you pretty lady. Elaine Castor
Barbara Gibbens and I became dear friends with Bill and Betty Seabourne when we moved to the Arcadia Valley in 1963. For many years our families spent a week at Norfolk Lake in Mountain Home, Arkansas. And we enjoyed many weekend visits with the Seabourne family. Bill and Betty and their children: Sharon, Connie, Chuck, and Lorrie are like family members. We did NOT know about the service until it was too late to attend. HUGS for the family.
I have loved this sweet lady my whole 56 years. She was there when I was born and has been a part of my family’s life in such a special way. Your wonderful laugh will always be missed. Hugs Rebecca
I was driving through Missouri just yesterday when I told my daughter about Betty and Bill. I have the fondest memories of summers at Lake Norfork and alternating New Year's celebrations. I wish I could have known them later in life. My Condolences to the family.
