Becky Dillard (Seale)

Rebecca “Becky” Dillard Seale, September 1, 1945—May 21, 2018


Rebecca “Becky” Seale, 72, of Bryan, passed away on May 21, 2018. A funeral service was held on Thursday, May 24, 2018, at First United Methodist Church in Bryan. Interment followed at Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Smetana.


Becky was born on September 1, 1945, in Bryan TX to A.M. (Joe) and Elizabeth Dillard. She attended Bryan schools and graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in 1963. Becky attended North Texas State University and Allen Academy Junior College and graduated from Texas A&M University in 1967. She was in one of the first graduating classes of women at A&M, a proud Aggie for sure. After graduation, Becky began her teaching career. She impacted many students during her years of teaching at Bonham Elementary, St. Joseph Catholic School, and Crockett Elementary. She continued her career in education with Bryan ISD as a computer technologist. Becky retired from Bryan ISD with 47 years of service.


On December 5, 1969, Becky married Hugh Seale. She was a devoted, loving wife to Hugh and mother to two sons, Allan and Patrick. Becky took pleasure in her family and pride in her grandsons, Kaison and Cooper.


First United Methodist of Bryan and the Mary Porter Sunday school class were an important part of Becky’s life. She was a member of Alpha Delta Kappa honorary sorority for educators. Becky was an excellent cook and a master at making Christmas candies. She always loved her Summer Sisters and their gatherings and time spent together every summer.


Becky is preceded in death by her parents, Joe and Elizabeth Dillard of Bryan, and her brother, Jeff Dillard of Katy. She is survived by her husband Hugh Seale of Bryan; two sons Allan and Patrick Seale both of Bryan; two grandsons Kaison and Cooper Seale both of Belton TX; brothers Roy Dillard and his wife Shane and Jack Dillard both of Bryan; her nephews and nieces, other relatives, and close friends.


Becky will be remembered as a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to many and will be greatly missed until we see her again. During her illness the past several years, she was lovingly cared for by her husband, Hugh and son, Allan.


Honoring Becky as pallbearers are Patrick Seale, Allen Seale, Kaison Seale, Cooper Seale, Jackson Dillard, and Seth Dillard.

Becky always had a smile and a kind word for every person.

I really enjoyed having Becky as my friend.  She was always fun and very calm.  No matter what happened she had a smile on her face.  I loved visiting at her home because there was always something going on, and if not there, then down the street at Michelle's.  I also loved her beautiful white hair.  I'm not sure that she did, but I admired it immensely. I will cheerish my memories of our fun times. She fought a tough battle and I'm sure that her angle wings are as beautiful as her white hair. Thanks, Becky, for being my friend for so many years.

Sadly missed, but long remembered, the smile, the hair, the joy in life. We'll meet again someday.

I am saddened each time I think of Becky. What a good friend she was-sweet, loyal, funny! I regret that I didn’t visit with her more at our reunions-missed opportunities to rekindle our friendship from Bryan High days❤️

I pray the day is around the corner when cancer is no more a threat than a headache.  I hate it.  It's robbed so many from extrodinary lifes and left so many families broken hearted.  Becky was one who did not deserve this death.  Never without a smile.  Always glad to see you.  Full of life and hugs.  A model of consistency.  Just a wonderful friend.  God bless you Hugh and family.  Your wife and mom was just a peach.   God had his reasons and at least you have the comfort of knowing, free of pain and distress, she's a very happy camper now.
