Birth: Mar. 25, 1939
Death: Oct. 19, 2010

MOTHER HELEN SEAY Helen Whitaker Seay was born March 25, 1939 to the proud parents of Richard Whitaker and Jennie Mae Pinkston of Fort Worth, Texas. Helen was the sixth of nine children. Six have preceded her in death. Mother Seay was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas and moved to California as a young adult where she met and married her husband, Elvin Seay, Sr. Of this union, five children were born. They both accepted Christ and were saved under the leadership of Elder Wright. Her husband, Elvin Seay Sr., and two of her sons, Elvin Seay Jr. and James Seay, have preceded her in death. Mother Seay was a very devoted mother to many. She was also the First Lady of Greater Love Church of God in Christ, which was founded and pastored by her husband, the late Elvin Seay Sr. Mother Seay possessed the Fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. She held many titles in the church. You name it, she did it. She was the best cook ever. She really enjoyed cooking, and we sure enjoyed eating her delicious food. In 1982, Mother Seay and Elvin Seay Sr. moved their family to the Inland Empire. She continued her fellowship at Carter Memorial Church of God in Christ. She later joined Refreshing Springs Community Church under Pastor Bobby Davis, whom she loved and highly respected. She held the position of one of the Mothers of the church and served on the Pastor's Aid and the Hospitality Board with a humble spirit. Mother Seay loved her family and friends. Her passion was her family. Mother Seay leaves unforgettable memories which will be cherished by her three children, Helen D. Seay, Mary Rosborough and Mark Seay; one son-in-law, Larry Rosborough; one daughter-in-law, Dannette Seay; two sisters, Nancy Jackson and Brenda Whitaker; one brother, William Whitaker; three sisters in Christ, Sis. Smith, Sis. Lockett, and Sis. Mays; thirteen grandchildren, Nakeima, Marquize, Robert Jr., Charles, Terrell, Aloha, Tashawnda, Alonzo, Sylvester, Galisa, Ryan, Irene and Rheji; sixteen great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives. Mother Seay will be missed by many and cherished by all. Rest on Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister, Auntie and wonderful Friend. We love you!
