Jean Seymour, 82, of Claude, TX our beloved wife and mother, passed on Monday morning, March 23, 2020, to her eternal home.
She was born March 29, 1937 in Canyon, TX to Bill and Edith (Gazzaway) Davis. Jean grew up in Canyon, TX.
She married the love of her life, Jim Seymour, on December 5, 1953 in Clovis, NM. They moved to Claude in 1962. Jean was an excellent wife and mother and homemaker. She was dedicated to teaching her children the importance of God’s principles. She was also a very gifted Bible teacher for many years. She loved cooking, gardening, sewing, word puzzles and reading. Jean was an avid reader, reading over 30 books a year, including the Bible every year. She had already read 10 books in 2020! We take much comfort in knowing that she is with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She was truly a Proverbs 31 woman…”She opens her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looks well to the ways of her household, and eats not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excelleth them all. Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain; but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates.”
She is preceded in death by her parents; a daughter, Laura Ellen Seymour; and a brother, Tom Davis.
Jean is survived by her beloved husband of 66 years, Jim Seymour; a son, Jimmy Seymour Jr; four daughters, Jeanie Tow and husband Richard, Karen Pugh and husband Mike, Susan Seymour, and Julie Cagle and husband Todd; a brother, Lonnie Davis; nine grandchildren, Jimmy III, Josh, Karol, Jill, Katie, Ellen, Amy, Emily and Elise; and six great-grandchildren.
“For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land… Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.” Song of Solomon 2:11-13
