Margaret Alley Seymour, of Lubbock, Texas, peacefully passed away on Sunday, October 24, 2021, with family at her side. Margaret, “Maggie”, was born in Rochester, New York on February 23, 1961, to Elizabeth and Carroll Overton Alley Jr. She was raised in Silver Spring, Maryland.

She earned a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology at the University of New Mexico. She then moved to Lubbock, where she received a graduate degree in Higher Education. This is also where she met the love of her life, Steve Seymour.
Maggie was extremely intelligent and worked in a variety of fields. She was the tax consultant at Reese AFB, a Caseworker at Buckner Children’s Home, a Counselor, and Coordinator of Special Services at South Plains College. Later, she decided to pursue a career as a professor at South Plains College, where she remained until she retired in 2017. Maggie was a longtime member of AAUW and served as President. For decades, she also owned Reliable Tax Services and was the accountant for her husband’s construction company.

Maggie had a passion for cooking and was magnificent at it. From an early age she loved to read, and was an avid reader. She loved entertaining, theme parties, babies, dancing, the beach, and bourbon. She enjoyed spending time in the backyard with her family, dogs, and turtles. She was an extraordinary mother to more than just her children. Maggie was strong and brave, and inspired many. She was a cradle Episcopalian and loved her church family. She was head of the altar guild at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church.

Maggie married Steve on May 26, 1984. Maggie and Steve had two daughters, Monica and Emily. She is survived by her husband Steve Seymour; daughter Monica Garrett and precious grandchild, Caroline; daughter Emily and husband Tanner Massucci; stepdaughter Chanda Seymour; sister Frances and husband Steve Kruger; niece Rebecca and husband Sean Bringham; nephew Josh Kruger and wife Liz.

Services will be held at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church on Saturday, October 30, 2021 at 2 p.m.

Steve, Monica, Emily, and Tanner. I’m so sorry to learn of Maggie’s passing. I always enjoyed visiting with her as she walked by while walking the dog. She kept me updated on you girls and the light of her eye, Caroline. Steve you and Maggie both were an encouragement to me through Don’s health issues and deciding whether to move to Gunter. Thankyou for being wonderful neighbors and friends. May God give you strength, courage, and comfort. Love, Jackie and Don

I met Maggie in college in NM. We became fast and nearly inseparable friends. We knew each other for only a year, but our friendship was cemented. We promised to never lose track of each other, and have always kept in touch.
It pains me that I never got to hug you again, Maggie, but I know you will be at the gate to welcome me home with that long awaited hug.

Dear Steve,
It’s hard to believe she is gone. I am so very very sad for you Monica, Emily and Frances. She has gone through so much this year and you were always at her side. She loved Caroline and talked about her all the time. So grateful we spent four years together at UNM. But more importantly, I was blessed to be with her when she met you. God wrap his arms around you and the family.

She touched many lives through her career and was dedicated to education.
Her influence will be felt.
