Obituary

SEWARD, Melissa B., 48, of Georgetown, TX, passed away on June 25, 2024. Melissa was born on January 1, 1976, and grew up in Chesterfield, Virginia. She graduated from Longwood University and began her career as a special education teacher. She met Paul in the summer of 1995, and they married in June of 2000, welcoming their daughter Zoe in December of 2005.

Melissa’s journey through motherhood is a testament to her strength and love. She devoted herself wholeheartedly to her roles as wife and mother, creating many family memories with Paul and Zoe, particularly at the beach, at Disney, Great Wolf Lodge, at any of Zoe’s activities including competitive dance and at local hockey games. Zoe was her entire world, and she lit up when speaking about her. They made many memories together throughout their adventures.

As a devoted educator, Melissa inspired colleagues by sharing her knowledge with passion and dedication. She advocated for all students and mentored new and veteran teachers throughout her career. Melissa’s teachings weren’t only found within her classroom walls but also in the guidance and comfort she provided to her friends, helping them navigate challenges with resilience and joy.

Melissa was a true friend and an example for many in her life. She shared her excitement for new hobbies, movies, and activities with her friends and family and created many strong and lasting friendships. Her sense of humor, adventurous spirit, and kind heart will be remembered by all who knew and loved her. Melissa’s dedication to motherhood, friendship, and education leaves a lasting legacy in our lives.

She was a blessing to her family. She was selfless and kind, never thinking of herself, but always thinking of what she could do for others. She also had a bit of a prankster spirit and would play jokes on family members, especially when on vacation. So thankful to have such a loving, thoughtful daughter, sister, and aunt.     

Melissa was predeceased by her grandmother, Nellie Bew; grandfather, Russell Bew; and grandmother, Joyce Martin. She is survived by her husband, Paul Seward; daughter, Zoe Seward; father, Dennis Bew and stepmother, Tracey Bew; half-sister, Kendall Price and her husband Blake Price; and her niece, Ayla Price. As well as her second dad, Steve Martin and his wife Sandy; mother, Pat Kindervater and her husband, Ed Kindervater; and brothers, Andrew and Anthony Martin. Visitation will be held from 6:00-8:00 pm on Tuesday, July 2 at Morrissett Funeral & Cremation Service, 6500 Iron Bridge Rd., N. Chesterfield, VA 23234. Melissa’s funeral service will be held at 10:30 am on Wednesday, July 3rd at the Morrissett chapel. Interment to follow at Dale Memorial Park

  1. Melissa was such a genuinely kind and good person. She never failed to see the good in others, and she was the strongest advocate for her students. I loved working with her and learning from her. We had such fun times at work and had great opportunities for conversation. Zoey was her pride and joy and she loved Paul and her family so much. I always thought how lucky they were to have her. How lucky they are to have had her, even though that was time was cut way too short. I know I will always take what I learned from Melissa with me moving forward. She knew what was important in life and lived her life in a way that honored that. Rest in peace, friend.
