Elizabeth "Betty" Jo Seebeck, a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt and friend died peacefully on 11/19/2020. Born in St. Louis, MO, 1/9/1947, the youngest of three daughters to Joseph Charles and Beatrice Agnes (Egan) Steimley, Betty graduated from St. Elizabeth's Academy in St. Louis. She took the chance on a blind date to St. Anthony's Teen Town in St. Louis in 1964 where she met the love of her life, Maurice "Mo" Clark Seebeck, Sr., and the two fell madly in love. In 1965 Mo joined the USAF and Betty followed him to his first posting in Ramstein AFB, West Germany. They were married in 1966 and their first child, Dorlisa "Lisa" Anne Seebeck, was born in July 1967. Betty and Mo had the opportunity to travel the world and the USA during their time in the USAF, including Bellevue, NE, where their son, Maurice "Mo" Clark Seebeck, Jr., was born in August 1971. They later lived in Rantoul, IL as well as Ft. Indiantown Gap, PA and they continued to travel after retirement from military life. In 1977 they were stationed at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, NV for the first time and returned in 1982 where they remained for many happy years.
Betty received an Associate's Degree in dental assisting and worked in the industry for many years, after which she moved into dental and medical insurance auditing. After an early retirement she enjoyed working with children at the Clark County School District as a teacher's aide, and she volunteered frequently with the Red Rock Audubon Society and the Salvation Army's Angel Tree. Betty was artistic and creative in nature; she enjoyed birding, gardening, reading, beadwork, crocheting, genealogy, cooking, and hosting many small gatherings with Mo in their home with family (especially grand and great grand children) and their many friends.
Her compassion and caring for all living things, her positive demeanor, her ability to listen and offer advice, her friendship and her love will be missed by all who knew her, most especially by her husband Mo of 54 years, her sister Mary McHugh, daughter Lisa, son Mo Jr. (Sandra Lopez), grandchildren James Seebeck, Valerie Courser (Jorge Medrano), Hannah Courser (Cooper Hall), Damian Nunez, Michael Nunez, Maurice "Mo" Seebeck, III, Kayla Seebeck, great grandson Cassian Medrano, and many nieces and nephews. Betty was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Patricia Colligan. Betty was always there for us all, never assuming, very forgiving, loving, humanizing, and as perfect as perfect could be. We will always be thankful for her and for her love for each of us. As Mo Sr. would say, "we love you Sweetie."
Those wishing to honor her can do so by recognizing the dangers of distracted driving and by making a continuous commitment to safety.
The family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the staff of St. Rose Siena Hospital, Henderson, NV, for their compassionate care during her final days. Services are pending.
