Emilie Milton Seebach Born Jan. 27, 1935 Died April 2, 2012 Resident of Pleasanton
Emilie Milton Seebach died Monday, April 2, 2012, at home and peacefully, in the company of family. She was a great woman who lived and loved fully.
Born in Houston, Texas, to Earl and Gladys Milton, Emilie graduated from Lamar High School in 1953 in Houston, Texas, and attended the University of Texas in Austin, Texas. She married Robert Green in 1953 and reared her three children - Ron, Lori, and Lisa in Dallas, Texas. She was a charter member of Ridgeview Presbyterian Church in Farmers Branch, Texas, as well as church secretary and a member of the choir. She helped launch the HEMI initiative in the Dallas County Community College District as an Asst. to the Administrator and later served as Executive Asst. to the President of Corey Hebert, Inc.
Emilie moved to California in 1988 with her marriage to Howard Seebach and was very active in the life of First Presbyterian Church of Livermore serving on the Session and on many committees. She was especially known for her creative leadership and organization in the church’s social activities. Along with Howard, in January, 1991, Emilie started a sales training, events, and meeting company with clients such as DuPont and the Valley Care Hospital Foundation.
Emilie’s life centered around her family and friends. She was a loving wife and mother, rearing three children, enjoying time with seven grandchildren, and later blending in Howard’s four children and their families. Emilie’s friendships were very important to her. She was always available for a family member or friend in need. She was active in Presbyterian Women and founded a support group for mothers whose children had passed before them.
Emilie created a beautiful home and garden filled with flowers, color, and reminders of a life full of travel, experiences, love, and friendship. In her garden, she had a special place for the Texas Bluebonnet and in her heart, a special place for her family and friends in the Lone Star State.
She is survived by her husband of 24 years, Howard G. Seebach of Pleasanton, CA, brother George C. Milton of Emporia, Kansas, son Ronald M. Green and daughter-in-law Donna E. Green of Fairfax, Virginia, daughter Lori K. Tittle and son-in-law Langley D. Tittle of Coppell, TX, son-in-law James N. Hector of Alpine, TX, and granddaughters Jenni and Meredith Green, Logan Tittle, Katie and Rachel Hector, and grandsons Matthew Green and Lane Tittle. She is preceded in death by her sister Nancy M. Kopp and her beloved daughter Lisa A. Hector.
Services will be held on Sunday, April 29, 2012, at the First Presbyterian Church in Livermore, CA at 1:30pm. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made “in memory of Emilie M. Seebach” to the First Presbyterian Church, 2020 Fifth Street, Livermore, CA, 94550.
Emilie was not just a spectator of life – she was an active participant. She impacted the lives of her family, her friends, and her community, and she will be missed greatly.
