Chris found an obituary for Judith T. Seeley (1941-2016). The obituary says that Judy is originally from the northeast, moved to LA in 1995 and is survived by her husband Larry. The burial and service were in Opelousas, LA. Various children were mentioned but none are Seeley’s so Judy must have had at least one prior marriage. I can send you a copy of the complete obituary if you’d like one; it will eventually be posted on the SGS website. Chris found a public record for Larry D/Larry Dean Seeley showing him with Judith in Opelousa and a couple of other locations in LA and Panama City, FL and giving his birthdate: 20 May 1939.
