M. Patricia Seaburn
M. Patricia Seaburn, 81, passed away on Monday, Feb. 17, 2020, at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, surrounded by loved ones.
Born July 28, 1938, in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, she was a daughter of the late Earl Woodferd and Mildred Virginia (Johnson) Dougherty.
As a child, she moved with her parents and sister to the Shadyrest area of Ellwood City and grew up along the Connoquenessing Creek, spending many days canoeing and caring for her pet animals.
She married her beloved husband, John W. Seaburn, on Sept. 26, 1956. They resided in Ellport (Ellwood City) and enjoyed 53 years of marriage before his death on Feb. 24, 2010 - one week shy of a decade before Patricia's passing.

She retired in 2000 after 39 years of teaching elementary students in the Ellwood and Riverside school districts.
She was a member of First United Methodist Church, where she served as a Sunday school teacher and Bible school volunteer.
She loved animals, horseback riding and enjoying the sounds of nature from her porch at home. Her most cherished time was spent with family and friends.
