Patricia Ann Seal was born Sept. 20, 1944, in Baton Rogue, to Lillian (Breland) and Willie Jackson. Pat passed away Aug. 9, 2018, at her home in Angie.

Pat spent her early childhood in Baton Rogue before moving to Texas in her later childhood. Pat moved back to Louisiana as a teenager. Pat met the love of her life, Paul Seal Sr. Pat and Paul Sr. were married Feb. 11, 1962, and made their home in Angie. To this union four children were born: in 1963, Tana Lynn and Paula Ann, infant twins who passed away at birth. Then, in 1964, Paul and Pat welcomed son Paul Jr. and in 1968 son Mark was born. Paul Sr. and Pat lived in Angie and raised their sons, Paul Jr. and Mark.

Paul Sr. and Pat had a dairy when they were first married and later they had a farm. Pat helped with all aspects of the farm, including milking, cleaning stalls, feeding, and tending to the needs of the animals. Pat also grew an amazing garden every year and she would preserve much of the fruit and vegetables that came from her garden.

Pat was a hardworking woman who loved her family and took pride in her work. Pat held many positions during her life, working two jobs most times. Pat was always up for a challenge and held positions as a carhop as a teenager and then as an aide for the Washington Parish School Board. Pat also worked at the garment plant in Franklinton, and in Columbia, Miss.

Pat worked hard to provide for her family and she loved her children and grandchildren more than anything. Pat was referred to as the matriarch of her family, ensuring everyone was taken care of. Pat was a proud grandmother to three grandchildren — Clint Seal, Drew Seal and April Seal. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy and Pat ensured she was at all of their school events and activities.

Pat also had a special place her in heart for God and she spent most of her Sundays in house of worship. Over the last 10 years, Pat had attended Angie Baptist Church. Pat also had many hobbies that included reading, baking, helping with the farm, and gardening.
