Judy Seabert (1940-2013) passed away on August 23, 2013, leaving a legacy of working with youth and families; a commitment to her community, education and her synagogue; and a love for animals.
Aberdeen was her home for nearly 50 years where she touched many lives through her dedication to community organizations focused on youth, prevention and education, domestic violence and sexual assault, and increasing opportunities for young people and families to live better lives. Organizations/programs such as 4-H, Youth Help, Natural Helpers, and Grays Harbor Community College are some who received her gracious gifts as an educator, leader, community builder, and champion for social justice.
She will be deeply missed by her family including her long-time partner, Janet Thomas, and her children and grandchildren including, Andrea Seabert Olsen (Karin), son, Jack, from Olympia, Wash.; Denise Seabert Bailey (Matt), sons, Clark, Nathan, Elias, from Muncie, Ind.; Becky Reflow Case from Everett, Wash.; and Butch Reflow, son, Austin, from Newberg, Ore.
A small family service was held on Monday, August 26, 2013, at Temple Beth Israel in Aberdeen.
Remembrances can be made to her heart’s work, Camp Victory, a camp for children who have been sexually abused, at PO Box 711, Ocean Park, WA 98640 or online at campvictoryforchildren.org
