Seaver, Cynthia Linne (Weeks) - June 02, 2014


BERLIN - Cynthia Linne (Weeks) Seaver, 56, of Berlin, loving wife of David Seaver for 33 years, passed away on Monday (June 2, 2014) after a brief, unexpected illness. Born in Worcester, Massachusetts on January 1, 1958, she attended Shrewsbury High School, was a graduate of The New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, and moved to Connecticut with her family in 1981. She was an exceptionally gifted teacher and gained great satisfaction being a sixth grade science teacher at the Thomas Edison Magnet School in Meriden. Most recently her love of music led Cindy to join the Middletown Symphonic Band, and although her time with the band was brief, she was excited about playing her clarinet again. She had the gift of being able to make many friends throughout her life and was loved by those who got the opportunity to know her. Among her closest friends she cherished spending time with her special Mother’s Group, life long friends. In addition to her husband, she leaves a daughter, Abigail Louise Seaver of West Hartford; her mother, Alma “Penny” Weeks of Port Charlotte, Florida; three sisters and their spouses, Jane Byo and husband Jim of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Stacey Miles and husband Michael of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and Karen Forrest and husband Richard of Grafton, Massachusetts; her sister in law, Elisabeth (Seaver) Hocking and her husband John of Middleboro, Massachusetts; her brother in law, Paul Seaver of Westboro, Massachusetts; Kathryn (Seaver) Fogarty and her husband John of Saratoga Springs, New York; and Peter Seaver and his wife Sharon of Live Oak, Florida. Cindy loved her nieces and nephews, Alex Byo, Daniel Miles, Stephanie Miles, Timothy Forrest, Bradley Forrest, Michael Hocking, Sara (Hocking) Campbell, Daniel Hocking; Katie Hocking, Beth Braxton, Michael Fogarty, Matthew Fogarty and Meghan, Rachel and Eric Seaver. She also leaves her very special friend, Debbie McNamee, who was a dedicated nurse for Cindy’s son, Justin, for over 22 years. Debbie’s love and compassion for Justin and the rest of Cindy’s family made her seem a part of Cindy’s extended family. Cindy was preceded in death by her beloved son, Justin David Seaver, and her father, Rudolph D. Weeks. A memorial visitation will be held on Saturday (June 7, 2014) from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. at Porter’s Funeral Home, 111 Chamberlain Highway in Berlin, CT. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the Thomas Edison Magnet School, c/o ACES/TEMS, 350 State Street, North Haven, CT 06473, with the notation In Memory of Cynthia Seaver.
