Amelia Gray Fleming Seymour

Amelia Gray Fleming Seymour, age 77, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 24, 2024, at her residence in Bowman, GA, surrounded by her family. 


Along with her twin sister Alberta, Amelia was born in Elberton, GA on July 7, 1946. Her parents, Thomas Albert Fleming, Sr. and Virgie Gertrude Fuller Fleming raised the family of five in the Middleton Community of Elberton. At the age of 16, Amelia married the love of her life, William Randall Seymour. She was a dedicated member of Northside Baptist Church for many years, being a member of the Jolly Elders and enjoying her Sunday school class. Amelia was previously a member of the Red Hat Association. 


A hard worker, she worked at Rocky River Mills, Elberton Mills, Georgia Synthetics, and retired from Prestolite. Her greatest job, however, was being Mom and Granny. Her retirement years were spent being the “on call” babysitter, never missing an opportunity to love on and spoil her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Many of their fondest memories were at Papa’s and Granny’s. Her sweet disposition, words of encouragement, and caring smile will remain with her entire family throughout their lives.


Amelia was a nurturer at heart. When not with her family, she could often be found tending to her flower gardens and nurturing her blooms with the same love and tenderness that she exhibited to her family.  She loved canning and making jellies, watching western television shows, and working in her crossword puzzle books. Amelia and Billy were avid campers, spending most of their summer weekends on Clarks Hill Lake, camping at Bobby Brown Park and later at their place at the Elbert County Fish and Game Club. She never missed an opportunity to play a card game with family and friends alike. 


Along with Billy, her husband of nearly 61 years, she is survived by her children: Virgil (Terri) Seymour and Tina Edwards (Scott Brown); grandchildren: Josh (McKenzi) Seymour, Myra (Evan) Harris, Matthew (Ashlie) Seymour, Abby (Adam) Gibson, and Emily Edwards; great-grandchildren: Jameson, Kendal, Emersyn, Kamdyn, Oakes, and Hudson; siblings: Aubrey (Dianne) Fleming and Alberta Cox; sisters-in-law: Connie Fleming, Lynn Herndon, and Judy Seigler; and a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives. 


In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brothers: Alton Fleming and Thomas Fleming; parents-in-law, William and Pauline Seymour; and siblings-in-law: Caroleen Ruff, T.C. Seymour, Beth Clinton, Mary Edwards, and Pat Seymour. 


The family is at the home of Tina Edwards, 1026 Edwards Drive, Elberton, and will receive friends on Thursday, April 25, from 5:00-7:00p.m. at Berry Funeral Home.


Funeral services celebrating Amelia's life will be held on Friday, April 26, at 11:00a.m. at Northside Baptist Church. Interment will follow in Forest Hills Memorial Park.
