Jeanne Boswell Seamster

August 14, 1937 ~ January 30, 2022 (age 84)


Jeanne Boswell Seamster, 84 passed away peacefully on Sunday, January 30,2022, at Sovah Health Center, Danville, Virginia.  Jeanne was born on August 14, 1937, to Bessie and Luther Boswell in Dry Fork, Va.

 Jeanne spent her young life growing up in the Schoolfield Community.  Where her family moved to work for Dan River Mills.  There at age 8 she met a young man who would become her husband.  After graduating from Fishburne Military Academy, James Barbour Seamster and Jeanne were married on February 27, 1955.  Together they enjoyed a great life, serving the Lord, raising their children, and building a business, Wilco Inc.

Jeanne was a devoted Mother, affectionate Grandmother, very proud Great Grandmother, and faithful friend.  She was a talented musician, playing the piano beautifully.  Her family and friends were blessed to enjoy her good cooking and traveling many places together.  Due to the fact Jeanne never met a stranger, it was always interesting and enjoyable to travel with her.  She will be remembered most by those who loved her as “an encourager” and a woman of great strength.  Jeanne’s passing fulfills a desire held sacred during her life to someday live in God’s Kingdom through Embracing Jesus for dying on the cross.  We have the Blessed assurance that our mother and Grandmother has made it safely home.

Predeceasing Jeanne, Her parents, and her grandmother, Nellie Stowe Yeatts, Husband, James Barbour Seamster, Sons James Barbour Seamster II, and John Paul Seamster.
