Barbara Jean Fleming Seale Godfrey, born in Monroe, La., June 20, 1930 transitioned into her eternal home on July 25, after a lengthy illness.

She was the daughter of Cecil P. Fleming, Bernice Green and J.K. Cummings and sister of Cecil P. Fleming Jr., all deceased. Barbara was also preceded in death by her husbands, John Richard Seale Sr. and George Godfrey.

She counted as her greatest achievement raising three children and seeing them all receive college educations. Towards that end Barbara worked as an insurance adjuster and supervisor for Texas Employers, Kemper, and Aetna Life and Casualty insurance companies. Late in life she volunteered for the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce, Dripping Springs Senior Center Thrift Shop, and Kairos Prison Ministry.

Survived by daughter, Terri Emerson of Austin/Georgetown; son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Jennifer Seale of Houston/Conroe; and caring friends, Doug and Cindy Cones of Dripping Springs; grandchildren Jill Emerson, Wes (Jenny) Seale, Bethany (Jeff) Sznajder, great grandson, James Thomas Seale, and her two precious cats, Gypsy and Paka, all who blessed, comforted, and cared for her during her last years.

The family would like to thank the staff of Heritage Oaks Assisted Living Center, Bristol Hospice and Home Care Assistance of The Woodlands for their compassion and care.  

A private family service was held at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Beaumont. Services were held under the direction of Dorman Funeral Home in Orange. Condolences may be sent for the family at
