There will be a Celebration of Life for Jacquelyn Seabourn at 10:00 A.M., Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at Valley Creek Church of Christ located at 1420 Pioneer Road, Mesquite, Texas 75149. 

Jacquelyn was born May 5, 1938 to Jack and Mamie Taylor in the small community of Monticello, in Titus County, Texas. She attended the Monticello school and grew up in the Monticello church of Christ. Jacquelyn graduated from Mt. Pleasant High School in 1956, and quickly moved to Dallas to attend Business Secretary school. She had an aptitude for numbers and was soon working as a bookkeeper. She married Wayne Lambert in 1957 and had a daughter soon after. She was widowed a couple of years later when Wayne died during a surgery to correct a congenital heart defect.

While working in Dallas, she met and married Harry Seabourn in 1964, and they were married for 52 years until his death in 2016. She helped Harry build a successful business that he began in 1976, until she retired 24 years later.

Jacquelyn enjoyed sewing, vegetable and flower gardening, cooking, shopping, game night with the family, and playing canasta with her friends. She loved watching sports, particularly the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, and Dallas Mavericks. She also loved the Lord and his church, and was a shining example of her faith.

Jacquelyn is survived by her three children and their spouses: Bill and Cheryl Fellenbaum, Todd and Tammy Seabourn, and Jason and Penny Cowlishaw. She also has six grandchildren along with their families. Ian and April Fellenbaum, Hayley Fellenbaum, Tyler and Betsy Seabourn (with soon-to-be-born great-granddaughter Emma Grace,) Tanner and Meggie Seabourn, Samantha Cowlishaw, and Sydney Cowlishaw. Sister, Judy Taylor, sister-in-law Rebecca Jones and brother- and sister-in-law Kenneth and Carolyn Seabourn, along with many nieces, nephews and their families.

She was preceded in death by her husband Harry Seabourn, her parents, Jack and Mamie Taylor, and her youngest sister, Deborah Crawford.
