Dorothy Seay Obituary

Dorothy P. Seay, age 86, of Farmville, Virginia, died December 1, 2023. She was preceded in death by her husband of 43 years, Paul D. Seay, Sr. and her late partner in life of 17 years, John F. Reynolds.

Dot’s early life began in Nelson County, transitioning to raising a family of her own in Dillwyn, and eventually lived out her later years in Farmville, Virginia. 

Dot was a woman of worldly travels and cultural immersion, with some of her fondest experiences being the exploration of Alaska, Austria, China, New Zealand, Australia, and her many oceanic cruises.

Her greatest accomplishment in life spawned from being a mother and eventually the matriarch (Mom, Mema, Grandma, Grandma Dot) of her family to include 3 children, 9 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. 

She is survived by her children Paul D. Seay, Jr. (Elise), Kevin P. Seay (Julie), and Susan S. Johnson (Benjamin). Her grandchildren are spread throughout the world and include:  Emily Smith, Kristen Nicollerat, Harrison Johnson, Ellen Seay, Everett Seay, Clay Johnson, Kate Seay, Evelyn Cunningham and Carson Johnson. Her great grandchildren include: Jack, Amelia, Calvin, and the most recent addition to her family, Eden.
