Nancy L. Seyler

Nancy L. Seyler, 74, of Alta Street, Marietta, died June 8, 2014, at Marietta Memorial Hospital, surrounded by her loving family.

Born July 17, 1939, in Niagara Falls, N.Y., she was the daughter of the late Russell L. and Evelyn L. Mellenthine MacVittie.

As a young woman, Nancy worked at Union Carbide in Marietta where she met and later married her late husband, Robert Seyler Jr. Nancy was a homemaker, loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, sister-in-law and aunt.

She spent countless hours playing cards and mahjong with her friends. Until recently, she was an avid bowler, loved to travel to out-of-town bowling tournaments and enjoyed exercise class at the O’Neill Center. Nancy was a member of the Marietta Mad Hatters and had dinner every month with her high school classmates. Lots of people were recipients of Nancy’s homemade stamped greeting cards. She loved to read and create beautiful cross-stitch masterpieces for family and friends.

Nancy is survived by her three daughters, Cindy Thrasher (Bobby), Shari Brown (Tony) and Amy Morgan (David), all of Marietta. She cherished her grandchildren, Samantha Alden (Scott), Stephanie Boyer (Chad) and Haylee and Justin Morgan and was super proud of their accomplishments. The newest loves of her life were her great-grandchildren, Abby Jo and Eric Seyler Alden. Nancy is also survived by two sisters, Mary Ann Rushton of Boardman, Ohio, and Janet Mondor of Simpsonville, S.C.
