Marilyn Dale Allamby Seaberry was born on December 15, 1956
on St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. She was the eldest of four children. '
Marilyn grew up in St. Thomas under the care and guidance of her
grandparents. She received her education from the V.I. Public School
system, graduating from C.A.H.S. with the class of 1975. After work-
ing for the government for a short period of time, Marilyn felt the need a
to further her education and relocated to the mainland.
She later returned home where she met and married Alvin Seaberry.
They soon left the island to reside on the mainland.
Marilyn returned home once again and was recently employed by the
V.I. Government at the V.I. Housing, Parks and Recreation.
Her character was that of a loving, warm, affectionate, dedicated,
caring and outspoken person, touching the lives of all she came in contact
Marilyn, you will be missed, but not forgotten. Rest in peace.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for his name's sake. 4-
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff
they comfort me,
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence
of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup
runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all
the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

How strange you should sleep so profoundly
So young, so unworn by the strife
While beside you, brimful of hope's nectar,
Untouched stands the goblet of life. 4;
God knows all about those who loved you,
How bitter the trial must be,
And right through it all God is loving,
And knows so much better than we.

Rest in peace, Marilyn, we loved you very, very much and you will
be missed dearly.
your brother and sisters,
Talib, Beverly and Renee

Your passing has filled my eyes with tears and my heart with sorrow.
I am distressed by our sudden loss and at times I'll find it unbearable to
accept. I have asked the Lord Jesus to help me through and to accept
his ways, as they are always best.
The Lord heard your cry, and answered. Good-bye, Granddaughter.
Now as you have departed from this life, but remain with me in spirit, I
am confident, therefore, that this bond which has been formed between
us is memorable and eternal.
Love, Grandmother

Marilyn, our love, your caring, concern, cooperation and sincerity
will always serve as a source of inspiration, spiritual strength and support
in our lives.
We thank God for the privilege of having you as a part of our family.
Your work on earth is complete. Enjoy the fruit of your labor in the
realm of eternity with God.
your Aunts,
Jean Norris, Urline Lettsome, Janet and Carol Allamby

God has taken you away from us
Which I don't understand
My heart is saddened to know that you have departed
But there is hope that we shall meet again in that
great eternal home
You left behind lasting memories of our few months of
But though the time was short, it was nice knowing you
Farewell, my dear Seaberry, farewell, farewell
until we meet again.
Edith Brathwaite

I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the family of Marilyn
Seaberry. I had the pleasure of having Marilyn as a co-worker at the St.
Thomas Hospital until her recent promotional transfer to another
She was always willing to assist others in whatever way she could.
Her warm personality and her care and concern for others will never be
forgotten by all who were closely associated with her. Her sudden passing
is indeed a shock and she will surely be missed.
May you be strengthened during this difficult time and find comfort
in knowing that you are not alone in your grief.
With deepest sympathy,
Judith M.O. Steele

Our religion teaches that the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.
Yet it is extremely difficult for us mere mortals to understand why a
young flower in the springtime of her youth has been taken away from us.
As Christians we are taught that every act serves a purpose in God's
Master Plan. We look for the good that is planned by the Lord. Marilyn
was a very special person to all of us. She was frank, outspoken, caring,
loving. Her passing has united and taught us. She was alive on Thursday
afternoon and plucked away on Friday morning. We could all learn from
her death.
The Lord moves in mysterious ways. We do not know the day,
the hour or the time that He will come to take us to join her. Therefore,
we must treat each other with kindness, respect and love, prepared to meet
our maker at any time. This is Marilyn's lesson to us.
May she rest in peace.
