Nettie Mae Seibly Obituary
Beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, Nettie Seibly passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones.
Nettie was born on February 8, 1926 in Oklahoma. She moved to California in the early 1940's and lived in the Bakersfield area until her passing February 25, 2014.
Nettie was preceded in death by her parents H.W. and Sallie Elizabeth Cannon; siblings Mattie Lynch, Marie Copeland, Eva Travis, Herbert, William (Jake), Albert, Grover and Floyd Cannon; husband and father of their six children Tony E. Berry; and second husband Dr. Robert C. Seibly.
Nettie is survived by her children Linda and Jim Maynard, Woodie, Michael and Tony (Buddy) Berry of Bakersfield, Sandra Berry and Steven Hollongsworth of Lompac, Ricky and Jacque Berry of Phoenix, Arizona; thirteen grandchildren; twenty four great grandchildren; three great great grandchildren; sisters-in-law Francis Cannon and Judy Cannon; numerous beloved nieces and nephews; and her loving and constant companion in her later years, Floyd Murrel Swan.
Nettie was a devoted mother. Her love for her family was without measure. Knowing she loved Jesus Christ and accepted Him as her Savior we are confident she is now resting in the arms of angels.
We already miss you Mother, you will always be with us, you are more than a memory, you are a living presence in our hearts.
We wish to express a heartfelt "Thank you" and unending gratitude to Hoffman Hospice for a kind, gentle and respectful treatment you gave to our mother and the assistance and support to out family as we made this journey together.
A memorial service celebrating the life of Nettie Mae Seibly will be held in June at our family reunion per her request. For further information and details please call (661) 835-8682
