Susan Ann Seamster, affectionately known as “Bowinkle,” was born July 14, 1960, to the late Cornelius Miller and Susie Mae Martin-Tumblin of Lewisville.
She attended Ellis High School in Stamps. Susan worked for over 30 years at the Alan White Furniture Company where she was president of the Labor Board and a supervisor.
Mother Susan accepted the Lord as her personal Savior at a very early age. She united with Buchanan Missionary Baptist Church, and later she united with Miles Memorial Church of God in Christ in El Dorado, Arkansas, where she was a faithful and dedicated member under the leadership of her son, Elder LeePatrick Miller. She worked as the Pastor Aid president, a member of the Mother’s Board, and a praise conductor. Mother Susan was faithful until God called her home on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.
She was blessed with two beautiful daughters and a son. She was known for her compassion and unconditional love not only to her children, grandchildren, and family, but also to everyone she met. She took great pride in raising her children by doing as God’s Holy word said, “To train up a child in the way they should go.”
She will always be remembered as a mother, grandmother, sister, auntie, and friend whose greatest gift was helping others.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Louis Tumblin and Jerry Revels; and two sisters, Mary Sue Kelly, and Essie Dean Jenkins.
Her loving memories will be cherished by her daughters, Sylvia Miller (Aron) of TexARKana, and Amanda Seamster of Stamps; one son, LeePatrick (Yalonda) Miller of Stamps; seven sisters, Bessie McDowell of Pine Bluff, Teresa Revels, Sandra Revels Henry, Erma Lee, and Rosetta Caldwell, all of Stamps, Lillie Perry of Lewisville, and Gloria Gordan of Muskegon, MI; three brothers, Willie (Bertha) Martin of Fort Worth, Texas, John L. (Jennifer) Martin of Stamps, and John H. (Rosetha) Martin of Lewisville; nine grandchildren, Destiny, Timbriesha, Shardae, Timara Reynolds, LePatrick, Martavious, Nehemiah Miller, Azurea Seamster, and Antonio Sterling Jr.; three great-grandchildren, Lee, Jr., Mariah Washington, and Martavious “M.J.” Miller; two godsons, Freddie Daniels and Terry Turner; best friend, Sandra Guilbeau; close and special friend, Charles Hamilton Sr.; and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends who will miss her dearly.
