“Never follow where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
Maggie Seals, 32, received her angel wings and let her spirit soar going to be with her Lord on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020. She passed away peacefully surrounded by family, loved ones, and Little Beaux.
She is survived by her immediate family, parents Julie Brock and Douglas Seals; her precious daughter, Adilynn Seals Gay, who Maggie considered her greatest achievement; and Jonathan Gay. Additional relatives are uncles and aunts, Tommy and Dru Lea, Bill and Leah Veck; first cousins, April Veck St. Pierre, Lenzi Veck Davis, Callie Veck Azar, Patrick Lea, Amanda Seals Starns, Anna Ruth Seals and Steven E. Seals; and aunt, Cheryl Holland.
Maggie was preceded in death by her daughter, Abigail Lenora Seals Gay; her maternal grandparents, Pat and Shirley Brock; and her paternal grandparents, Eugene and Peggy Seals.
Maggie graduated from Poplarville High School in 2006 and Pearl River Community College in 2008, receiving a degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Biology.
Maggie was an avid reader and enjoyed photography, horseback riding, and traveling. Some of Maggie’s favorite adventures included trips to Washington D.C. and Australia. Maggie was a constant caregiver to animals, including her pets, Pooka, Frisky, Nub, and Keeley who she loved to run barefoot with in the country. Maggie also had a profound love for children, especially children with special needs.
Maggie was employed at Southland Express, LLC. She enjoyed her job, where she served as a personal assistant to “Aunt Jo Ann and Uncle Tracey Vince.”
We would like to express a special thanks to The Neurological/Stroke team of doctors and nurses at Tulane Medical. They attended to every need of Maggie and family members. Also, to the “Wish” girls, Susan Foil, Lisa Silverman, Lori and Heidi Bass, Terry Stone, and Debbie Cavendish.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be made to Superior Avenue Baptist Church.
