Obituary — Mina Seaton



Mina Seaton, wife of Bud Seaton, passed away Monday, March 18, 2019 after an extended illness. Mina was 82 years old.

Jennings & Ayers Funeral Home, located at 820 Church St. in Murfreesboro, Tennessee is assisting the family with arrangements. Visitation will be Wednesday, March 20 from 4 to 8 p.m. A chapel service will be held Thursday, March 21 at 10 a.m. 

In addition to her loving husband, Mina left behind two sons; Kirk (Joan) Seaton and Blake (Cindy) Seaton, five living grandchildren, Sandy, Amy, Brandon, Jennifer and Kevin, plus one deceased granddaughter, Leslie. She also had 10 great-grandchildren; Harlee, Gracie Bell, Alexis, Payton, Christopher, Jase, Presleigh, Paxton, Mason and Kyle.

“Heaven got a special angel,” said Joan Seaton, on behalf of the family following her passing. “We are all heartbroken and sad, but she's now in a better place. We are glad she isn't suffering anymore. She was truly a special lady. Keep our family in your prayers … Bud’s going to be lost without her, we all are.”

Throughout Mina’s illness, Bud, well-known for his many years presenting the flag during opening ceremonies at the Celebration, never left her side, other than a few hours occasionally when he would go home to sleep. Even then, he would only leave her side if another member of the family was there to sit by her side. 

Mina passed away at home with family by her side. She will be missed by all and the Report wishes to extend its deepest condolences to the family during this difficult time.
