Stacy Seaton, 63, of Jefferson City went home to be with her Lord on Sunday, October 23, 2022, in her home surrounded by those who love her, after a battle with breast cancer.
She was born on May 21, 1959, in Brandon, Mississippi to Jon and Frances Kaye (Burnham) Root. Stacy graduated from Springdale High School in Springdale, Arkansas.
Stacy married her high school sweetheart, Rick Seaton, on June 10, 1978. Over the years, Stacy was a supportive Pastor’s Wife. They served in churches in Arkansas and Missouri. Rick is currently the pastor at First Baptist Church Elston, Missouri.
In July 2022, Stacy retired after nearly 15 years of service with the Missouri Baptist Convention.
In her free time, Stacy enjoyed hosting parties and events, spending time with her family/friends/church, watching the Arkansas Razorbacks, and spoiling her grandchildren and dogs.
Survivors include her father, Jon Root, of Atlanta, GA; husband, Rick Seaton of Jefferson City; two children, Sarah Jackson (Roy) of Trenton and Rachel Timmerman (Randal) of Jefferson City; eight grandchildren, Saedee (Hunter) Trask, Royce Jackson, Olivia Fish, Lilly Timmerman, Corbitt Timmerman, Ava Timmerman, Kaitlyn Fish, and Wyatt Fish; two sisters, Joni (Forrest) Adams of Springdale, AR and Lori (Reg) Griffin of Atlanta, GA; sister-in-law, Becky (Kenneth) Kipp, Haines City, FL; brother-in-law, William (Martha) Seaton, Olive Branch, MS; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
During Stacy’s hospital stay, this verse was very comforting to her, Isaiah 41:10, “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
