"Those whom we love and lose are no longer where they were before. They are now wherever we are." Saint John Chrysostom (4th-5th century)

     Sharon Rose Seymour, 75, of Baltimore, MD and Harwich Port, MA, died of heart failure, Tuesday morning, March 27th. Sharon was born to the late Russell and Dorothy Rose, March 21st 1943, in Camden, New Jersey. Sharon graduated from White Plains High School in 1961, Penn State University in 1965 and received her Masters in Communications at Fairfield University in 1981. Sharon became an ordained minister in 2000.  
     Sharon was a loving wife, incredible mother and grandmother and a spiritual guide for many. She worked as a real estate agent, music producer, a healer and a therapist. During the early years of marriage, she moved 12 times in the first 14 years and ultimately settled in Ruxton, Maryland for the next 35. In all these years, the Cape was always her true home. She lived to make anyone she came in contact with happy and fulfilled. She always had a smile, compassion and grace that made all she encountered feel warm and welcome.  
     Other than her family, she loved Cape Cod, sunrises, the beach, dancing with her husband and large family gatherings filled with music, fun and laughter. She adored roses and watching the local birds wherever she was.  
     Sharon is lovingly remembered by her devoted husband of 53 years, Stephen, and three children, Scott Seymour (Julie) of Fairfield, Connecticut, Cregg Seymour (Crady) of Baltimore, Maryland, and Lisa LeBlanc (Michael) of Redding, Connecticut. She is also survived by nine grandchildren, Stephen, Ryan, Cooper, Olivia, Charlotte, Parker, Riley, Alex and Trevor. She loved her dogs throughout her life (Sin, Bear, Joss, Glory Days and Tucket).  
     A private family service will be held in her honor at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to the Cape Cod Health Care Foundation – Cape Cod Hospital. https://support.givetocapecodhealth.org/sslpage.aspx?pid=298 (Please choose Cape Cod Hospital from the drop down and mention "In Memory of Sharon Seymour" in the Tribute Information section.)

"Sorry to hear of your lost, I too have recently lost a loved one in death. However the Bible  gives  us a hope as we  read  Rev 21:4 we can look to  see them  again. Heb 2:14 helps  us  to see  who  causes death, When God's Kingdom is  realized as mentioned  in Matt.6: 9,10.We can   hope to see our loved ones again as stated in Acts 24:14.Hope  and comfort comes from Gods word."

"I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to your family. A scripture i find helpful is Isaiah 41:10 even though we may feel alone when we lose someone we love God reminds us that he is there with us ready to comfort us.We can appreciate that now and Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore the former things have passed away.”

By means of God’s kingdom that Jesus mentioned at Matthew 6:10 that is what we can look forward to in the future.

I will continually keep you in my prayers during this time and in the days ahead."

"I met Steve when we were teenagers in Chatham. We shared many common interests, such as fishing, sailing, and driving my Jeep on North Beach. Steve had some crazy notions, such as waterskiing entirely around Monomoy Point without falling, and building a ski jump in front of their family home on Pleasant Bay and Round Cove. We actually even water skied in and out of Round Cove in front of Steve’s summer family home. Fewer boats then… and no water police.
The best Seymour family event was at Steve’s parents, Dan and Louise, annual clambake, which was held on their beach. Steve and I would spend days collecting driftwood for the fire, selecting special rocks to heat the clambake, and digging holes in the sand for the barrels. On clambake day, Willard Nickerson would arrive in his skiff from his fish market and pull up on the beach. His skiff was full of steamers, beautiful lobsters and very special seaweed for the “bake.” Steve would start the fire around sunrise, and the special stones were ready for the bake by early afternoon. Dan and Louise then entertained dozens of guests, all of whom had a great time digging through the delectable “treasures”. It was a feast like no other.
Like many summer boys growing up together, Steve and I lost touch over the years. Life gets in the way.
Then, two years ago, my wife Mary Ellen and I, spent a fabulous afternoon with Steve on his boat. We traveled across Nantucket Sound from Allen’s Harbor to Chatham Inlet in a strong Southwest wind with plenty of spray. It was like old times, fishing together and challenging the elements. It felt great to be together again.
After the boat ride, we joined Sharon at home, and finally had a chance to visit with a person we hardly knew. Sharon was so warm and gracious, we felt as if we had known her all our lives.
Steve is a very lucky guy! Fifty three years with such a fantastic lady!"

"Long before my children picked spouses,  Sharon gave my advice. She told me to love the  person my child married as much as I  loved my child. My daughter just celebrated her 10th anniversary and my son his 4th. I  have thought about her wise words often.  Sharon was a loving example for everyone she knew.  My heartfelt condolences to her precious family."

"I feel so lucky to have walked on the path of life with Sharon for the time that our lives crisscrossed back and forth over each other.  She had a lovely way of making you feel welcome and loved, as it is mentioned above.  Like everyone else, I am shocked and saddened by the loss of such a beautiful, loving soul.  She is on to the next great adventure, probably just as shocked as we are to find herself there.  

Like so many others, I will miss her.  I can't help thinking that if we each could pass forward the contented happiness and love she gave us, the world would be a better place.  I will try to remember that for myself.

My heart is with you, Stephen and the rest of your beautiful, if heartbroken, family. Love and strength to each of you.
Love, Jen"

"Sharon Rose Seymour enlightened me.  Her generosity is awe inspiring. Her faith in the power of music to heal hearts, minds and souls helped raise me as a person and as a singer songwriter.  As a music producer she based her creative decisions on the truth and encouraged me to do the same.  May Sharon's loving example help to make our heavy hearts a little lighter.  Sincere condolences and hugs to Stephen and the Seymour family."

This tribute was added by Nancy Jenkins on 30th March 2018

"Many times I have said what a remarkable and well versed  woman Sharon was.  Many times I have felt honored that she included me in her circle of friends.  As a couple, it was a delight to share time with Sharon and Steve.  Individually it was the same.  Sharon helped my granddaughter overcome her extreme fear of dogs.  I will forever be grateful to her for that.  I loved the clips she would share with me of the grandchilren''s recitals, rowing events, and accolades published in papers that I do not get.  She shared recipes of candy that she made with her granddaughter, and always delighted in passing along the achievements and fun times she shared with each of them.  I truly loved Sharon and will miss her dearly.  My memories of her will make me smile with love.  Women should strive to be like her.  She made the world a better and happier place. ♡"

This tribute was added by James Balmer on 29th March 2018

"Dear Seymour Family,  We have been blessed to get to know Sharon and her husband Stephen and their family for the last twenty one years as their grandchildren have performed in our concerts and musicals throughout these years. She always had a smile and loved the music in song and on stage. She loved her grandchildren and we continue to treasure each one of them along with their parents. May God Bless the Seymour Family in these days ahead and may all of you know that you are loved and held in high regard by everyone here at FCDS. Our prayers are with each one of you, most especially Stephen with the loss of his beautiful wife, and with the entire family.  Love will help the most as you go forward.   With great respect for the whole family,                         Mary Nelson & Jim Balmer"

"Long after Scott was out of the house I would still bring girlfriends by for Sharon's and Steve's approval.  Sharon was right on about Beth.  There's a big hole of goodness in the world today that we all must fill.  Love you Seymours."
