Dionna Amelia Seals (Webb)

Dionna Amelia Seals (Webb), of Pikeville Tennessee  passed away on February 8th, 2024, in Tallahassee Florida with her daughters by her side.

Dionna was a member of the New Harmony Church of Christ. Dionna was a retired beautician.

She was born to Arlis Earl and Sybil Clyde Colvard Seals on September 3, 1940.

Dionna was preceded in death by her parents, her son Marvin Wayne Webb Jr.; her son-in-law Frederick Stuart White Sr.; and her sister, Shelby Jean Myers.

Dionna is survived by her daughters Marcia (late Stuart) White of East Point, Florida, Teressa (Gary) Everett of Pikeville, and Leslie (Mike) Nale of Pikeville; brothers James Norman (late Ethel Pendergrass) Seals of Polson ,Montana, Alon Kelly “Butch” (Nancy Tate) Seals of Dayton, John Mitchell Seals of Elijay, Georgia, and Chris (Christine McLenon) Seals of Crossville. She is also survived by her seven grandchildren, Frederick Stuart White Jr., Jason (Julie) White, Gary Dow Everett II, Cameron Chase Everett, Megan (Eric) Reece, Morgan (Jeremiah) Thurman, and Madison (Bradley) Sutton; and great-grandchildren, Libby White, Ella White, Jacob White, Hayes White, Emma White, Matthew White, Hope Everett, Chasa Everett, Brady Reece, Mia Reece, Mason Reece, Jeriah Thurman and Maeva Thurman.

Dionna enjoyed spending the last two years of her life sharing her time between her three daughters. She spent her summers with Teressa and Leslie and her winter months with Marcy. Dionna loved antique shopping with Teressa. She loved having her hair styled, nails done and dining out with Leslie. She loved Florida and living on the St. George Island beach with Marcy.  She enjoyed dining out, eating fresh oysters and lavish seafood. Dionna, better known as Tootsie to her children, grandchildren, and friends, was a very beautiful and classy lady.  Marcy, Teressa, and Leslie were always proud to be seen with her and to take her anywhere, due to her desire to look her best wherever she went. Tootsie would laughingly tell folks that her daughters like dressing her up like a Barbie Doll. We will miss our mother greatly.

A celebration of Dionna’s life will be held in the spring. She will be laid to rest in the Seals’ Cemetery in the Belleview Community of Bledsoe County.
