Mary Frances (Dollie) Geisbauer Boehmer Seidel went to be with her Lord on Jan. 3, 2003, after being born on Feb. 13, 1918, in H o t Springs, Ark.
She was reared by Catholic nuns, Sr. Anne, Sr. Regina and Sr. Modesta in St. Joseph’s Orphanage in Little Rock, Ark., until she was adopted by the Jake Steele family in Fort Smith, Ark. After finishing high school, she became a hair stylist, but her customers did too much gossiping to suit her. Therefore, she went into nurse’s training in St. Joseph’s Hospital in Boonville, Mo., with affilia
tions at St. Louis University and Mt. St. Rose Hospital. Following training and two years practice in St. Joseph’s Hospital she joined the U.S. Navy Nurse Corp. Reserve as an ensign. She served for three years and three months and was discharged as a full lieutenant. On July 30, 1946, she married Edmund O. Seidel. They had three children; Georg M. Seidel of San Antonio, Texas, who gave them Nick and Elise as grandchlidren; Gretchen Ann Jones of Fredericksburg, Texas, with Ted, Jeff and William; and Helen McQueeny of Carbondale, Colo., with Paul. She did some private duty nursing, but always managed to take good care of her husband and children. She had such a good musical ear that she could very quickly play any musical instrument soon after she picked it up. She
took a few piano lessions but studied the violin longer. She seemed to be happiest when a group would gather behind her while she played the piano to accompany the group’s singing. Any song they would hum to her she quickly picked up the tune on the piano, playing by ear. Most of her sessions went on for at least two hours. Her family and many friends have lost their favorite piano player so she can accompany many angel’s choirs. Committal services will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2002, at 2 p.m. in Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery, a memorial service will follow in Sunset Funeral Home Chapel at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to your favorite charity.
