She worked at Delco, retiring in 1978 after 30 years. She was a lifelong member of St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church and a member of UAW Local 292.
Preceding her in death were four brothers and an infant sister; children, Susie Seaton, Frank Hedrick, and Cecilia Boruff; and two grandchildren, Michael Seaton and Bethanne Seaton.
The family would like to thank the staff at Northwoods Commons Assisted Living for loving and looking after our grandmother for the last four and a half years. May God bless you all.
