Seta was united in marriage to Lee F. Easton on April 3, 1943 in East St. Louis, Illinois and to this union two children were born Beverly and Aaron.
Lee and Seta first owned & operated, in a joint corporation, a dairy farm near Sparta, Illinois. In 1946 they sold the partnership and purchased a farm near Renault, Illinois.
Seta was a stay at home mother and housewife on the family farm. As well, Seta worked side-by-side with her husband operating equipment and caring for livestock. Gardening, canning and butchering provided nearly all the necessary foods. She also was an avid seamstress and provided clothing, rugs, quilts, drapes, etc. for her family and for a time worked for Brown Shoe Company in Chester, Illinois.
In 1973 Lee and Seta sold the family farm and moved to Green River, Wyoming. There (1973-1981) Lee worked the underground mines and Seta worked as a department store manager. In 1981, they retired and moved to Cuba, Missouri, where Seta lived at home until her passing.
As well, Lee and Seta both enjoyed working various church projects and were longtime (70 years) members of the Assembly of God Churches in Illinois, Wyoming and Missouri. Over these times, Seta also served an estimated 30 years as the church secretary.
Seta was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, great-aunt and a friend to many. She will truly be missed, by all who knew and loved her.
