Elizabeth Carolyn "Connie" Warner Seymour, 95, of Sykesville, formerly of Bethesda, died Tuesday, June 4, 2013, at Carroll Hospice's Dove House in Westminster.

Born May 27, 1918, in Salisbury, she was the daughter of the late George Raymond and Bessie LeCompte Warner. She was the wife of the late Gilbert B. Seymour, her husband of 32 years.

She had been a resident at Fairhaven in Sykesville until the brief illness resulting in her transfer to hospice care.

She was a graduate of Salisbury State Teachers' College and taught elementary school from 1939 to 1941. She was then employed as a subversive radio analyst for the FBI in Washington, D.C., from 1941 to 1945, leaving the FBI to become a Capitol tour guide on Capitol Hill from 1945 to 1949.

Following her marriage she became a homemaker and volunteer. She was a member of the League of Women Voters, chairwoman of the Voter Service Committee for Montgomery County, and a member of the Chevy Chase Women's Club. Using her skills as an expert seamstress, she was an adult education sewing teacher for 15 years, and served as a Montgomery County 4-H volunteer. She was the organizational leader of the Bethesda Girls 4-H Club and organized an afterschool 4-H Club at the National 4-H Council in Chevy Chase. She taught countywide 4-H tailoring classes and spent many hours as a volunteer with the Montgomery County Agricultural Fair, earning a life membership.

She was a volunteer and member of the Hall of Fame of the National Children's Center, primarily for her work in sewing hundreds of Clipper the Clown puppets for children admitted to the center. She was a Homemaker Club member, and was honored as a Hall of Fame member of the Montgomery County Extension Service.

After moving to Fairhaven in 1992, she became involved with Fairhaven Archives, was the creator of Fairhaven Family Scrapbooks, sang in the Fairhaven Chapel Choir and was the Fairhaven Volunteer of the Year in 2005. She loved to participate in the many activities at Fairhaven and was known for her tea parties. She was of the Episcopalian faith.

Surviving are daughter Elizabeth Anna Seymour Davis and husband Daniel, of Jerusalem, Israel; a sister, Elizabeth Warner Sutherland; four grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and many friends from her Bethesda, Leisure World and Fairhaven communities, including Allen Brougham, of Fairhaven.
