Myra Seals left this world on Tuesday March 2nd, 2021 surrounded by family. She was born December 31, 1946 to Eva Joe Welch and Marshall Franklin Goodwin in Centerville, Tennessee. She married Kenneth Seals, the love of her life, August 19, 1997.
She worked at Merico Bakery, Vassarette, Paris Sewing, managed Pizza Hut and retired from working for the Thomas’s at many of their convenience stores.
Myra was known for taking in and caring for anyone that was in need. Over the years she had many people that became honorary family members and friends. She was always there ready with a cup of coffee and a listening ear.
She was part of the founding of the local Fraternal Order of Eagles many years ago. She was an avid motorcycle rider for years until she fell ill. Anything outdoors was right up her ally. She was sick and still out on the riding mower and/or tractor, fixing fences and delegating Pa with her mask and oxygen. Her other favorite past time was aggravating the dog out of Pa, Kenneth.
She was preceded in death by her father, Marshall Franklin Goodwin, grandmother, Pauline McDaniel, and a daughter Teresa Crawford. She is survived by her husband, Kenneth Seals of Pattonville, mother, Eva Joe Welch of Paris, daughter Tracy Laster and husband Joey of Kentucky, son Vince Gallimore and wife Jeannie of Tennessee, son Marshall Ballard of Princeton, daughter Lana Bethel of Pattonville, daughter, Sheilah Seymour of Paris, son David Seals and wife Christy of Paris, son Jason Seals of Paris. Bonus children are daughter Kay Kendrick and husband Mike of Fort Worth, son Ronald Ballard and wife Bahia of Sulphur Springs, son Johnny Glenn Ballard and wife Tammy of Sulphur Springs, son Jeff Slack of Fort Worth, son Brandon Gallimore and wife April of Kentucky, daughter Tammy Mcullum and husband Mike of Tennessee. And she had numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Special thanks go out to Robert and Cathy Bolin for always being there for her and Kenneth. Also special thanks to Dr. Ganguly and OnCall Hospice and Brentwood Terrance Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center for always going above and beyond in their care.
