Ernestine Louisa Seaton, known most affectionately as Mom, passed away peacefully at home on November 19, 2023.
Ernestine was born in St. Kitts, West Indies on November 13, 1924, to William Hobson and Mary Louisa Augusta Chapman. She loved her home country. However, she was determined to create a life of opportunity for her then seven children. So, in 1962 she moved to New York City, with her children. After getting the necessary credentials, she worked as a certified nurse assistant.
Mom will be dearly missed by her children George, Connie, Birthwick, and Floyd Seaton; Monetta Reed, Linda, Denise, and June Frazier. Two of her daughters, Renadine Sylvain and Judy Seaton, predeceased her. Ernestine’s two sisters, Violet and Connie Chapman, also predeceased her.
Left to cherish her memory are 14 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. Ernestine will also be lovingly remembered by her nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, friends, and fellow worshippers. Her canine companion, Lucky, misses her, too.
Ernestine was a loving person, generous with her time and energy. She doted on her family. She loved watching “Mash ‘em up” wrestling, football, and basketball. She loved knitting and gardening. She was always making a garment or bedspread for someone or nurturing a seedling or plant for someone’s garden. And, she never forgot the people who she grew up with in St. Kitts. She always found money and time to routinely send them clothing and other items they needed.
Mom’s kind heart and enduring love for life, family, and friends will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Sacramento Food Bank.
