Kathryn Laurine (Grace) Seber, 107, of Dania Beach, FL passed away Feb. 15, 2021. Daughter of the late William and Catherine (Clark) Grace. Sister to the late Mary Grace, Ann Sloman-Romanchuck, Alice Wood, William Grace, James Grace, Harry Grace, Eugene Grace and John Grace.

Kathryn or Kay as she was known, was born in 1913, in Hoboken, NJ. The family moved to Hackettstown, NJ in 1919. Kay graduated Hackettstown High School in 1931. In 1933, she married Joseph F. Seber. A few years later they bought an 8 acre farm. Joe drove a delivery truck in the mornings and Kay took care of the farm. All the children share many memories from helping work and run the farm. It was a lot of work! From 1938 until 1975 the Seber farm produced a lot of food. Safe to say, all of Kay and Joe’s children grew up healthy and strong. Kay even went back to college in 1973 and earned a Bachelor’s Degree. She worked as a teacher until they retired in 1978 to Miami Lakes. During the summers Kay and Joe ran a guest house in Avon By the sea, NJ. They were married 59 years until Joe’s death in 1992. As a widow, Kay moved to Tennessee, but by the year 1999 found her way back to Dania Beach, FL. She never remarried and thought of her late husband often. It was the memories of raising the children and life with her husband, siblings and parents that Kay held onto and kept her so strong. Kay had a front row seat to the marvels of the 20th century. She led an extraordinary life. She will be missed by many.

Kay is survived by her 8 children, Laurine Leach, Anne-Bernarda Mayberry, Carol Allen, Claire Schneider, Kathy Stevens, Joy Stanowicz, Joseph F. Seber Jr. and Thomas Seber. She is also survived by 33 grandchildren; 48 great grandchildren; 3 great great grandchildren, and 9 nieces and nephews.
