Obituary Condolences

Catherine Babb Seitz went home to be with her heavenly father on September 9, 2018, only two short months after being preceded in death by her husband of 43 years, Michael Dale Seitz, Sr. Better known as "Cathy" she was well loved by anyone who met her. She was an extraordinary mother to her two sons, raising them to be good and loving men. Her house was always open to their friends, many of whom still call her mom. Her grandchildren were the light of her life, who she spoiled whenever she was able. She remained a pillar of love and support to her four sisters. Cathy was a dedicated bus driver for Prince George County Schools for over 10 years. She was an avid supporter of first responders. Cathy enjoyed talking on the phone with her family and friends. Wherever she went, she was seen with a cup full of ice with a spoon, because she loved to chew ice. Her smile and loving personality affected so many, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Cathy was preceded in death by her father, Junius Monroe Babb; her mother, Mary Catherine Newsome Babb; and loving husband, Michael Dale Seitz, Sr. She is survived by her mother-in-law, Eula Seitz Carr; her two sons, Michael Seitz, Jr. (Chrissy), and Timothy Seitz (Adrianne); her grandchildren, Emma, Macy, Kaylee, Kaleb, and Kaiden; her four sisters, Nellie Emory (John), Donna Anderson, Ida Merritt (Richard), and Phyllis Brim and daughter, Katie; and many nieces and nephews.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 13, 2018, at the Crater Road Chapel of E. Alvin Small Funeral Homes and Crematory, 3935 S. Crater Road, Petersburg, Virginia 23805. Interment will follow in Southlawn Memorial Park, S. Prince George. The family will receive friends from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Wednesday night, September 12, 2018, at the funeral home.
