MaryRose Ann Seavey

AGE: 80 • Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

MaryRose A. Seavey died peacefully on Friday, February 24, 2017, at the age of 80. A lifelong Jersey girl, MaryRose lived her last years surrounded by siblings, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, in Charleston South Carolina, where other family had migrated over the years.

But her heart belonged to New Jersey. Born MaryRose Manzella in Newark to parents Carmen and Kate, she enjoyed family life with younger siblings Tina and John. Married to Newark Fire Captain Ralph R. Seavey, she raised children in Newark and Old Bridge, eventually moving to Lacey Township in the early 1990's. She was a stay at home mom for her children, and later worked as dispatcher for the Barnegat Police Department helping to develop outreach programs for seniors living alone.

She was devoted to family, and is survived by sister Tina, brother John, children Rhonda, Cindy and Ralph Jr. and their spouses, grandchildren Robert, Michael, Christopher, John and Samantha, and great-grandchildren Emma, Ben and Bryson.

Friends and family are invited to pay respects from 5 - 8pm on Thursday March 2nd at Layton's Home For Funerals, (609) 971-6800, 250 W. Lacey Road, Forked River, Lacey. Those planning to attend burial services will meet at Layton's Friday March 3rd at 930 am. A 10 am funeral service will be held at the funeral home. Entombment will follow at Saint Mary's Cemetery, Stafford Township. Please visit for additional information.
